|Tire ruts in yard|
Off to the farm today. What is this in the picture above?
Well, the Zen Machine (click link if new to the blog) has been in the shop getting it's annual tune up. They have a special deal every season, free pick up and delivery, discounted parts, and they check it from top to bottom and do an oil change, plugs, etc, but I digress.
So anyway, they delivered it back to the farm two days ago. We weren't there to receive it, but of course 2nd Family opened the gate so they could get in. Then I get a frantic phone call the next day from the John Deere shop saying "um, our delivery driver got stuck in your yard and he made some large ruts in the grass". Above photo, courtesy of 2nd Family, is the end result. It was, unfortunately for them, the lowest point in the yard and was still wet and soft from last weekend's heavy rains.
I'm hoping to see it in person and figure out the best way to deal with it. It's not like our yard is pristine and 'golf course like', so it's not that big of a deal to us, at least in the picture. Seeing it in person however, might be different. I'm guessing just take some soil, I think I can scrape some up from the raised bed delivery pile, fill the ruts in and then just let grass eventually take it over?
Barring rain, I will be on the Zen Machine doing the first mow of Spring.
The most important thing today though is to mow, edge, and beat the rain. If I don't do it this weekend and it rains, I might need a herd of
goats sheep to finish the job!
