Not THAT kind of grass! The try to cover the lumpy brown spots left from major plumbing dig sort of lawn grass!
I put out Winter rye and topper early this month to get a little green going and was surprised to find myself watering every other day due to the very warm and dry January we had had so far this year. I was worried the seed would not take due to the middle 70 to 80 degree temperatures since it is Winter seed.
Finally there is a haze of new tender green shoots rising from the soil! They took their time basking just under the topper but here they are the new Winter Rye seed lawn sprouts of 2012,welcome to the front yard,I will bring you some friends from Bermuda in the late Spring.
The sky which has been the hazy blue you see above is about to turn cloudy for the weekend and give the new grass a drink of unclorinated water.
I think I will make a big pot of Navy Bean soup this weekend and watch the grass grow!
