And The Grass Is Growing

This morning while I was watering my latest garden project I saw what I have been waiting for. I HAVE GRASS!!!

Can you see the small blades coming up?

Can you see all the small blades coming up?

I know what your thinking, Why is this exciting? You need to remember I have 2 big dogs and spring has just started. My lawn looks like a mix of dirt and patches of grass. So I did a small section to see if my grass seed from last year was still good. As you can see above it is growing very well.

I have to do my back yard in small sections as the dogs get free run of the yard, and the kids also are free to play as they see fit. This “trial” area was protected with nothing more than tomato cages.

As you can see from the picture I have many more spots to fill, thank you dogs.  I am quite happy with the small signs of life, and hoping it will fill the whole area once it all sprouts.


Are you interested in how I planted this seed? I have many more sections to do and have another method I would like to try. Look forward to that post coming once I get it planted and it starts to grow. Maybe as early as next week!   Or if you want to know NOW tell me in the comments below and if there is interest I could do a post per step and we can do it together.
