Green Green Grass of Home!

uicricket(z5 IA)August 19, 2005

I got home yesterday and I was shocked. Our grass is green again!!!!!! I even went out and dodged doggie doodies and put my bare naket feets in it. I know I sound nuts but when the grass has been brown all summer this is exciting news.

WE have a few dead areas we'll need to reseed but at least it's not the entire yard.

I think of all the many ways to get a lawn to greenup and grow...a long vaction is the best way.

Of course, if you stay home for your vaction...this does not seem to work...:-)

Yes, and when you step on the grass. The ground sinks a little rather than just crackles. Cool!

I did have to fire up the lawnmower. I probably should change the oil even though it has just sat there.
