"99% Weed Free"



If you are a Texan, or in the general area, you are very familiar with our grass. It starts turning a sickly shade of brown right around November, and slowly returns to it's natural green sometime around...well honestly I don't know when it goes back to green. Not only does it turn colors, but it takes on a cactus like texture and crunch. Totally not inviting for the barefoot fan such as myself. So, in an attempt to perk up our lawn, we laid a bunch of grass seed down. It's important I mention that the bag proudly proclaimed it was "99% Weed Free".



One bag contains roughly 10,000 seeds. So, you do some math and find out that this amounts to about 100 weeds. I don't know about you, but 100 weeds is exactly 100 more than I would like to own.

LOL!!! I don't know anything about "grass", our entire yard is one big weed!

Wow..........that is some strange looking grass..........does it stay prickly like that all the time? If so, I could never live there, I'm always barefoot!

Yuck. That doesn't look fun at all. Funny how the weeds sprout right up but no green grass is showing yet.

We don't have THOSE weeds, but we have plenty of others! LOL
Yeah, funny how none of the grass sprouted, but you got all the weeds!

LOL, our true green guy told us to get seed through your local farm supplier. It's better (and less weeds) than the Scott's stuff. I can't tell you whether or not that is true since all our grass (and any weeds) is frozen and covered in snow ;)

At least your weeds are nice and green! Good luck with the grass seed.
