So this is where our fescue fracas ends.

The results of Pete and I fertilizing half of our lawns, having the lawns look kinda dumb for a month or so, and seeing who grew the best blades.

If you got this far and are like “huh?,” then check out part 1 here.

If you got this far and are like “hey buddy, just let me see the results now,” then watch this video:

So, like I said, Pete definitely saw the best progress, and grew the better lawn. Now we just have to fertilize the other half of our lawns so they can catch up and we don’t get the side-eye from the neighbors.

Container Garden

I also want to give you a little update on the container garden. While we didn’t get into the tomato throwdown I hoped for, I did get spectacular results using the Sta-Green Potting Mix and Plant Food.

Day 5: The herbs have perked up a bit, seeming to have overcome the shock of being transplanted.

Day 10: More progress. I’ve been filling the reservoir with water daily through the watering tube.

Day 15: The basil is blowing up and the parsley is standing up straight. You’ll also notice the rubber band holding on the caover broke—probably due to being in direct sun during our 95°+ days.

Day 30:  I took this pic just a few days ago. Time to start using these herbs before they outgrow the container!

Just a shot from the other side since the basil was so large you couldn’t see everything else.
