Ahead of the (inevitable) August, I decided to start cutting the lawn. Just mowed about 1/2 of it this evening to the maximum height; there's too much growth to cut it down too much without clogging up the mower. Saw a vole run out from the tall grass to escape the mower. I also uncovered lots of vole tunnels in the tall grass. Ah well.
