I love butternut squash, crooknecks, zucchini cukes pickled anything. Hot pepper plants discourage pests :D
Hot pepper plants have never kept my kids out of anything. In fact my daughter (3) eats banana pepper rings like they are M&Ms.

Today will be day 12 that my lawnmower hasn't run. Not because it won't start... but every time I have a chance to mow... it's raining. I'm off work today and thunder woke me up at about 3:30am... and the rain fell for about three hours. It looks like it is gonna clear out and just maybe I can mow.
I'm getting rid of the grass and planting kelp. Sometimes ya gotta go with the flow.......

If you can grow Kelp in Pennsylvania.... You should consider trading the ranger for an ark...

I'm banning all of you once I can remember the procedure.

If I'm still a moderator or something.

Am I?

Pretty sure the only drink you moderate is water...

In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.

Have a drink and calm down. The party is just getting started.

We have to set up pumps to drain the water far enough to mow. Rice will be huge.

My credo
Doing things wrong, until I get it right.
So. My magneto got here and the box says part #595304. the part has #595038. i tried calling replacementparts.com to see if those parts were interchangeable, no answer. its Sunday and they're in Utah. it took a solid week for me to get the part so if i have to return it and wait for the right part, thats two more weeks with no mower. we finally got rain this week and my yard looks like we've abandoned the place. i can not go two more weeks without mowing and I aint pushing a mower around a 1/2 acre. So maybe I'll push a path to the cars and weedwack the perimeter.

Get a donkey. It'll eat some grass and weeds, keep away unwanted predators and.... When the neighbors talk about that a$$ that lives up the street, they might not be talking about you.

Win, win, win

Good enough
So. My magneto got here and the box says part #595304. the part has #595038. i tried calling replacementparts.com to see if those parts were interchangeable, no answer. its Sunday and they're in Utah. it took a solid week for me to get the part so if i have to return it and wait for the right part, thats two more weeks with no mower. we finally got rain this week and my yard looks like we've abandoned the place. i can not go two more weeks without mowing and I aint pushing a mower around a 1/2 acre. So maybe I'll push a path to the cars and weedwack the perimeter.
I had a quick look online and I can't find any site that says those two parts numbers are interchangeable. It seems like the wrong one. After Googling #595038, I can't even locate a magneto with that number. It may be some sort of production code?

I'd call them and ask about it, and if they say it's the wrong one, I'd demand overnight shipping on any replacement. Tell them your lawn is out of control and waiting a week for replacement parts isn't an option.
