Instant Lawns Grow Here

This is one of the sod farms along Eagle Road, technically in Meridian. This area had just been scraped up into big rolls. Then they spray the seeds onto the dirt for the next crop - it's a foam-green color material that holds the seeds. It's a beautiful instant lawn. Kentucky bluegrass is what's usually available, although it's the most difficult to grow here - it needs a lot of water. I keep trying to get rid of a little bit more of my bluegrass each year. My goal is to plant only things that flower or bear food! On a side note, today was a harrowing day of driving to Coventry, England, with my father behind the wheel on the "wrong side" and learning to drive on the left side of the road - kind of an "instant" driving lesson. The rental car is just a little bit scratched so far.
