Why does it bother growing? Really?

Don't get me wrong, I quite like the stuff (I'm in the process of trying to get a load of it growing again at Grind Towers - which basically means lots of bloody watering), but I was wondering just now what was in it in terms of life motivation for your average blade of grass.

Maybe to get one of your seeds eaten by a passing bird, only to be shat out at Wembley where it could grow up strapping and strong, but give way at just the right moment to prevent an otherwise nailed on late equaliser for the opposition against Leeds in the 2020 FA Cup final?

That'll be it.

I can't think of any other good reason.

Don't get me started on the futility of rhododendrons.

After buying the old ladies house which resembled a builders yard, pavers, pebbles n' such I took up the front garden and turfed.

What a difference, I love grass me.

But not cutting.

In a similar (but opposite) vein, I took a bit of a detour when I was last back home in order to drive past the house where I grew up and was a bit saddened to see that the (admittedly fairly small) patch of grass at the front of the house had been paved over to make an extra place to park a car.

If I'd known, I wouldn't have wasted so much time mowing it and spent more time throwing filth at the neighbours and playing the crackly sock game.

I'd move that into the probably column.

Grass didn't exist when the dinosaurs were about apparently.

So it wasn't a cosmic collision, they died through lack of cheese.

Poor scaly buggers.

You have to treat grass rough. Put fertiliser and weedkiller on only encourages it.

I hate mowing the lawn.

The only decent grass is the grass that grasses to me.

I would say about 90% of it has come through pretty well - the secret seems to be to stick to the fertiliser plan (leave it) and water the feck out of the stuff.

Just in time for the snow.

I may stripe mine.
