The Grass is Greener
We successfully laid 400 square feet of grade A Marathon 1 on saturday. It was practically instant gratification. I loved every second of it. Amazing how you can go from dirt to lawn in 4 hours.
Here is something crazy to think about. We bought 2 15 gallon Sellom plants @ 16 bucks each direct from the nursery. We went to Lowe's yesterday to look at patio furniture and the same plant in a 1 gallon container was 16.99. I almost choked. What a rip off. Thank goodness I know where to buy my plants.
Yesterday we threw some fall/ winter seeds in the ground. Nels made me mini sunshade tents. I'll have to take some pictures of that. They are cute. I hope they work. The sun has just about fried everything I have planted. So far the greens are my biggest success. We are eating the last bowl of tomatoes right now. They are so yummy.
This week I am going to remeasure the gravel situation. I need to cut it WAY down and then get some. Even though we have nice grass we still have dirt walkways which still mean muddy paws.
Have a happy monday!
