I’ve Got Grass!

Noooo...not that type of grass. What are you folks thinking? I’m talking about the type that (when a lot of grass grows together) forms what’s called a lawn. The lawn is something that you have to water and fertilize and mow and trim and occasionally nurse back to health if it gets infested by injurious bugs and sometimes reseed if it’s thinning or if it develops brown or bare spots. And every ten days or so (depending on the weather), you get to mow and trim all over again. Fun, no?


After the big garden cleanup in the front and right side of the house, grass seed was planted. And (I'm guessing because of all the rain we had) it germinated very quickly - within three days! At the speed it’s growing, those bare spots will be filled in no time.

Here is a photo of all the darling baby grass:

Isn’t this just the cutest thing?

There is a lot more sprouting on the right side of the house but that batch was a little camera shy. (Not to mention whinier because of the sun beating down on it. Oops! Did I say that out loud?)


  1. I had to cut mine down to the dirt this week because of chickweed. Have a good weekend!

  2. Oh my, that's too bad Chris! Our lawn is not too bad so far, although there are some weeds that have moved in. We'll see what happens.

    Have a good weekend, too!
