So here we go. Day 1 of starting a lawn from seed. I’ve written exhaustively about it in this post: https://dontpeeonthelavender.wordpress.com/2012/04/08/grass-day-one/
Long story short: I pulled up all the crappy grass from when we moved in and we’re trying to grow nice new grass from scratch. Kentucky Bluegrass to be specific. I’m a little worried that I’ve planted too soon, but time will tell.
Day 2. Slightly disappointed that the grass hasn’t grown yet, but that’s why this page is called “Watching Grass Grow.” Come back frequently to watch grass grow.
A keen eye might notice not a damn thing happening back there. Of course, if you’ve gotten this far in the page, I’m just going to assume you’re committed to this, and rooting for our back yard. For that, I thank you.
It’s been a bit chilly, and it won’t be until next week before we reach the ideal 60-65 degree daytime temperatures for grass germination. Perhaps things will perk up then.
Hey, what’s all that gunk? It’s green, but it doesn’t look like grass. Good question. It’s not grass. It’s a special, secret formula of stuff that should hopefully help the grass grow, because it’s clearly hasn’t been. What am I talking about? I’ve posted all about it here.
I give up. This isn’t working. Even my new strategy isn’t working.
