Guess What?!?

There's grass on that there hill!!!

All of our hard work didn't wash away after all!!!! From what it looks like now, the damage may not be nearly as bad as I thought!
Here are some photos from today:





Watering it, since it doesn't look like we are getting rain soon....



The photo above shows where the major washing took place. There are a few spriggs of grass here and there. Not exactly sure what we will do with this area yet, but HCG1 and Sunny have given us some really great suggestions!

GRASS!!!

The photos below are of the bottom of the hill near the ditch. There are some really nice green spots down there! Maybe it will spread?

The photo below shows the major wash area again. There is even a little grass popping up here.


We planted bermuda grass this time around, bahia grass this past winter (as recommended by the man at the feed store.) He said both were tough and would spread. I looked at my parents' pasture yesterday and they have a lot of bermuda grass. It was gorgeous after all the rain it has gotten lately. So, maybe there is hope after all....

Whoo-hoo! That green does look promising! Maybe the rain was a blessing in disguise?

We'll think of it in that way. :) Especially since the south has been in a severe drought...I can't (and shouldn't) really complain! :)
