Since moving into our house in Huntley about a month ago we have been chomping at the bit to get the front yard planted. We were finally able to get it done over the weekend.

I talked with a few people about whether they thought planting grass seed before winter was better than planting right after. They all recommended that it be done before because it gave the grass a better start for Spring.

With that said, we got the tractor and the seed and hit it hard.

What's crazy to me is that as I tilled up the yard I remembered that I hadn't driven a tractor big or small since I was in high school. According to my kids tractors had four legs instead of four wheels back then...not true.

None the less, where planted and ready to go for next spring which will bring a bunch more work by then.
