Been watering some part of the yard every night. The grass seed sown around open places is coming along fine. It isn't turf, of course, but in time it will be a nice cover.
Spoke to Bryan on the phone recently. He said it's been bitterly cold, and crop is not sown/frost damaged and needing to be re-sown/not coming along.
"How's my lawn doing?"
"OK. Looks like a hair transplant on a bald man's head."
