    I let the lawn seed itself last fall and do not plan on mowing till late next month.

    Mine was getting over 4 inches in some areas. Looks like barnyard grass or something. Showed up about 2 years ago and gets worse every year.

      The bermuda in the front yard is still dormant. I scalped it back so the sun can do it's magic in a few months. I'm putting down pre-emergent on it in the next day or two; then it will be green until the dye fades away.

          Front yard scalped again to 1 inch.

          Back yard growing vigorously.

            Uncovered the John Deere yesterday and drove it around the property to remind it of it's duty. It responded by awarding me with a flat front tire. I guess it's not yet ready to get to cutting...lol. Supposed to snow Thursday sooo…… not quite yet.

                My front is still dormant for the most part, backyard fared a bit better over the winter but not close to cutting either yet.

                  My grass and pasture grass IS growing, greening up in the warm rain today. The livestock have been actually grazing for a few days now. They are still eating the hay too, so this is just them getting at the tender sweet new grass...I still have about 30 bales of hay in the loft too. So it's all good.
