  •  Do-Overs (10+ / 0-)

    Let's see.  I'm currently waiting for an order to ship (mower blades, mine are now five years old and completely toast [for hyper-exacting versions of toast]).  It was supposed to ship in 1-24 hours.  It's now been, by my count, slightly over 144 hours.

    If they can't ship soonest, I want a do-over.

    I'm giving myself a lawn do-over as far as watering is concerned, and landed at Tractor Supply for sawdust pellets.  120 pounds went down over about 1,500 square feet that's burning the worst in this weather.

    With the rain tomorrow and Friday (hopefully), that'll give me a do-over, a mulching to guard against future do-overs, and decay in to eventually increase the water retention of the soil--an A-layer and a bit of a B-layer soil do-over.

    The rabbits are still nibbling at the zinnia (Mama Rabbit just had ANOTHER litter).  Very shortly I'm going to pee in a disposable container and add it to my irrigation system and hopefully get a do-over on the zinnias.  They sure won't mind the nitrogen (diluted 100:1).

    •  Sounds like your do-overs are mostly productive! (8+ / 0-)

      Except for that delayed shipping thang. I've got tons more to do in my yard, but what I've done so far has actually worked out pretty well...I haven't killed anything I've planted yet (knock on wood) and even the finicky shrubs I put in are doing okay. The higher-maintenance things (roses) are pretty well-established, so all I had to do was trim a few branches and tie some of them back. So far no critter damage at all, which is some kind of miracle.
