We have grass!

You can't tell from these pictures, but we have blades of grass coming up! Though it takes 7-10 days for the seeds to germinate and grow and Saturday was only day seven, we were getting nervous. We were afraid maybe we planted too soon after the kill off and that the soil was retaining some of the grass killer and it had killed our seeds. This morning, I spotted growth! Green blades of grass sprouting above the new layer of soil we put down!

Here are pictures of what the yard looks like today:


Here are some other pictures prior to the grass seed going down over a week ago:





This is our neighbor and Sous Chef loading the wheel barrow with soil.


Motorcycle Guy and the kids made a tunnel in the soil pile to climb through.


Big E in the tunnel.


Motorcycle Guy had to join in on the tunnel fun, too!
