This year’s seeds

Today was all about the grass. I got 15 more squares of grass from Houston Garden Center today (Kim got 20 yesterday) and I spread them around the front and backyard. I had to dig up some dead grass before placing them down; and I murdered some grubs who have been enjoying a feast on my grass’ roots for way too long.

Since I was at Houston Garden Center, I couldn’t resist buying a 24 pack of color ($5.77); I chose Bronze Leaf Red Begonia. I then went to Lowe’s to get some MiracleGro Seed Starter Potting Mix, there I found a six pack of African Marigolds that I could not resist ($1). I also bought a packet of portulaca seed ($1.29), I wanted them because I discovered some volunteers from last year in my flower bed, and they need company.
