It’s that time of year again to do yard work. This year, I’m trying something a little different. The photo to the right show blue green stuff all over my yard. That’s “Scotts® PatchMaster® Sun & Shade Mix” which is Grass seed with fertilizer and recycled paper as a mulch. It’s a simple idea: Any places that need patching, rake the dirt, put this down on it and watter for a few weeks.
In actuality, It’s a lot of work. My backyard lawn is better than last year, but that’s not saying too much. Since the Mrs. and I like to occasionally entertain with a BBQ, I figured I better do something about it. The Patch mix has to be watered every day for at least a couple of weeks in order to get it to take. When the grass is thick enough, the paper should be absorbed into the ground.
In the mean time. it looks really weird…
I’ve also planted vegetables again. This year:
- 9 broccoli plants
- 2 sweet basil plants
- 2 Greek oregano plants
- 1 cherry tomato plant
- 2 rows of Mesclun mixed salad
- 1 row of regular lettuce
- 1 Strawberry plant
Should be good when done. This photo is just opposite the one above.
Music I’m listening to right Now:
“Counting The Days” by Collective Soul from the “Youth” Album.
