Stuck in gear

I'd go to the junction of the linkage and the transmission and check from there. The transmission will have a lever or some sort of protrusion connecting to the linkage. See if you can move the lever/protrusion by hand, even if you have to disconnect it from the linkage. If you can move it, try to find neutral and reattach the linkage and adjust it so it corrresponds to the indicator on the shifter. If you can't move the lever/protrusion it's internal to the transmission and you are out of luck unless you're up to cracking open the transmission.

I think there is a safety or shear pin in the drive wheels and it probably needs replacing.They are inside the shaft and are put there so if you hit a stone or something the pin will break instead of breaking an expensive part.

Have someone to rock you while you attempt to move gear shift. Hopefully it is only stuck between gears and will disengage. Your grease in gearbox may have become hard causing problems. If you wash the gearbox with water when hot (after mowing) You may have created moisture in gearbox causing major damage to transmission.
