I live in Ohio, but that doesn't make me a farmer. We have dug up many areas in our backyard planting flower gardens, real gardens with vegetables and those kinds of things, but we're getting a little older and a little digging goes a long way. So we have cut back on our creative digs and are putting them back into grass. Decision made we headed for the garden store to pick up some grass seed and straw to cover the seed and keep it moist. We bought an ample amount of seed so it will be covered completely, and some straw to cover the seed. We, being the crack gardeners we are bought twice the amount of straw that we needed. So here is what we found on the internet that might use up our larger than needed purchase of the stuff.
