Grass: Update

It's been five weeks since Amber started her grass-growing effort. Here's how our yard looked five weeks ago...


And here's how it looks now:


You'll have to take my word for it, but it looks more impressive in person. It looks better over here closer to the driveway:


Everything between the closest driveway bump and the camera is new grass. Not bad, eh? From a distance, it actually looks like a full bed of grass. Yes, coverage is thin and spotty, but given that we're only five weeks in, and we got hardly any rain to speak of for the first three of those weeks, I think we're doing okay. Rainfall has been better the last two weeks: 4.5 inches recorded at the airport the last two weeks, and I think we got even more than that at our house.

We're still nowhere near the point where we have to mow it (aww, shucks), but we're on our way to fulfilling Amber's childhood fantasy of having a front yard you can walk barefoot in.
