I suppose folks in the north would call this weather we're having "indian summer." I look at it as a break from the heat we have to deal with from May through September.
The weather was nice enough for working in the yard on Saturady, so I began the monster lawn repair project by laying in some sod on the right-of-way in front of my house. Two pallets of St. Augustine Floritam in 1 square yard pieces. Watching it go onto the ground, one long row at a time is pretty amazing. Instant lawn. Where I grew up, on Long Island, you threw seed down in the spring and hoped it would take root and get green by the summer. This is very different. I've lived down here for 18 years, and this is the first time I've ever laid in my own lawn. I've done little patches and some sprigging, but this is a trip.
Oh, yeah, it's a lot of work, too. Only half way done. Thank goodness Monday's a holiday.
The job would be done, but we had a Jaguars' home game today, and that usually kills the greater part of my entire Sunday. They've been on a skid lately, so it was nice to see them rally and beat Washington.
