We are country folk now. This is how we country folk down here in southern Illinois grade the dirt and get it ready for the next step that is grass! Woohoo!
We picked up the bed springs for 1 whole dollar at an auction this past weekend. If you follow me on Instagram you probably saw some of the pretties at the auction. This bed spring was a sweet surprise... Let me tell you. Best dollar we ever spent..at an auction. Also you should have seen us strapping it to the top of the car!!
Under this strategically spread out bale of straw, lies (hopefully) little bits of plush light green grass. This is our test spot out front.
Since our dirt is more claylike than dirt like, we spread lime first. Lime from like, the garden department, not lime from the fruit and veggie aisle!
If the grass doesn't grow nice and thick we will have to try something else...like maybe stinky fertilizer. We will see.
Any grass growing tips?
Any readers #countryfolk like us?
Don't worry, later this week I will share the real goodies from Sunday's auction. Really good stuff!
