A blog about learning to live off the land and be self sufficient. Or maybe we are just hippies

I spent the morning raking out the last bit of dirt so we can seed this area. Ideally, you'd have a lawn roller to smooth and pack down before seeding, but I only have Fred and Ethel. They are walking all over it with their funny feet, and I think it is good enough. Cheap labor, and free fertilizer! And the cuteness factor is prrtty high, too.
This area has been scraped down to bare dirt and gravel ever since we moved in, and now that the heavy equipment no longer needs to get in and out of here, we can try planting grass. It doesnt have to be perfect, and it will be awfully nice to see something green here instead of a construction zone.
