Lookie here, our grass grew back for the summer!
benjacat and prudencerabbit's recipe for spectacular grass regrowth
-neglect and ignore grass until it burns out during unusually hot and dry summer (benefit: no need to waste fossil fuels mowing)
-let 5 dogs run around on it throughout unusually cold and snowy winter (ok, 4 dogs--Reuben does not do winter, unless he is snugged up inside on his favorite couch)
-let 5 dogs run around on it throughout unusually cold and rainy spring
-practice agility on it throughout unusually cold and rainy spring until it looks like the underside of Reuben's belly (ie: naked)
et voila! lush, green grass by June.
Here is what we did today:
My phone was low on batteries, so my video came out a bit jerky. You can still see all of the exciting parts, though. And you can hear my dog being a punk while her big bro Reuben is running with (gasp!) HER daddy. The nerve.
