The lawn struggles continue.
I've called the hydroseed company twice now, and they still haven't bothered to get back to me. Not sure why I'm being ignored, especially since the guy knows my Dad and they talked briefly about me being in touch to get an estimate.
The weeds are now grown up to the point where they need to be cut, but I don't have anything to cut them with. Nor would I know how to use such a device. So they're just gonna have to keep on growing. I don't really care at this point. Perhaps it can be my contribution to pollenation.
The other day I came home after work and there were 2 guys digging around in my ditch. Ok, not sure why they're here, but whatever. After they left, I went out and looked around. They made some adjustments to the ditch, likely due to the complaint of the "is your hubby home" neighbor. Ok, have no problem with that.
I just looked out the window tonight and suddenly notice that the ditch is looking a little green. Like it's been hydroseeded. Because I want to mow the ditch. Really, this has been my dream all along. I thought to myself, "self, I know how much you're looking forward to mowing your future lawn, wouldn't it be great if you could mow the ditch too? Then you'd have to buy even more power tools and spend even more money and time and aggravation trying to keep the grass cut. Sounds like a f***ing blast, let's do it!"
I don't want to mow a ditch. I don't want to whipper snip a ditch. But since it's on my property I have to look after it. Great. Just great. I will now have a lovely, grassy ditch combined with a big brown mudpit for a yard.
I can't do this outdoor stuff myself. I just can't. I am only one person, a weakling at that, and I can't rake, weed, and plant a lawn myself. This lawn thing is just not going to happen. It's much easier this way. The bees are happy, they get to do the whole pollenation routine. Here's to you, bees. Enjoy my yard.
