Welcome to Pearson Report.
I am participating in the 2015 A to Z Challenge.
Yes, I will be adhering to my THEME Calendar.
In light of my PLUCK A HAIR post I should add… I don’t just tweeze brows, I wax them too. Yes, hot wax, Bushman, that should take care of your unibrow, no problemo! LOL (Yet again, I laughed… could be the wine, or the beer I had before the wine… or the beer before the beer… oh, who’s counting. Well, apparently I am!)
OKAY… HERE WE GO…
Today I will talk to you about seeding success.
Yesterday I decided to play in the dirt.
I shovelled it, raked it, watered it, seeded it. After that I shovelled more, raked more, added more seed, and watered some more.
Then, I needed to figure out how to stomp it all down. I wished I had one of these big drum rollers - but I DID NOT.
If only I had this seed roller, and this dude in the green overalls - he looks like he knows what he's doing. (And, just so you know, I went to the website, where I got this photo, and realized I did everything wrong. Ha… I laugh in the face of the green grass-rolling goblin!)
So here’s what I did, according to the Pearson Report Seeding Success Manual. These pictures are worth at least several hundred words each.
|I found a used piece of plywood 22"W x 15"H|
|Initially I bent down to turn it over… well, that lasted about 1 minute.|
|This is a mini rake - about 4' tall. I pushed the tines under the board.|
|And flipped the board over.|
|When it was flat I jumped on it - voila, instant stomping!|
|Pretty Clever - if I do say so myself!|
|You cannot QUARREL with this kind of success!|
|The view of it from my front porch - truly amazing what I was|
able to accomplish without green overalls and a roller!
|On top of all that, I even managed to plant my flower garden…|
all of it! LOL
|This is what the mound of dirt looked like - taken months ago.|
The moral of this story… don’t QUARREL with success.
I went inside, and had those beers etc… while typing this I made a million typos. Thank god for that backspace button, eh!
I tried white out, but the screen went all weird (typed wierd - weird, eh!)
The question then begs…
What was your last QUARREL about?
(Leftovers or dinner reservations, plucking or tweezing, wine or beer, beer or beer, themes or winging it. And just so you know… I’m sticking to my theme AND still winging it, ha, so there, quarrel with that!)
