Recently, I wrote about why I grew a crop cover last Fall. Just to give you a quick recap, I grew oats and rye last fall. Since I had to plant the oats in the late summer, I was able to see them grow to about two feet. Gorgeous.
No really. Breathtaking.
Strong, thick, and quite handsome. (No, I am not talking about Adam Levine, Brad Pitt or your hunk du jour.)
We are talking beautiful, graceful grass. Not that wimpy stuff you call a lawn.
Although the pictures in my prior post are beautiful (if I say so myself) I forgot I had a video to share. An up close and personal look at my oats. (Yes, I can be dangerous with a camera. Everything becomes a YouTube video or a picture. Even the stink bug on my refrigerator catapulted to fame on my fan page. Well, kind of.)
When I watched the video, I couldn’t believe how vivid it was. So dreamy. So Nat Geo. I felt like I was thrown back to those happy days of tomato picking times. Where plucking vegetables off the vine was simply a flick of the wrist. And we said good night to everyone in the house. “Good night, Mary Ellen, Good night, John Boy….” Good Times. (Okay, that was a TV series The Waltons’ joke for those of you who have no idea who John Boy is.)
Come on, Anna. Snap out of it and show the d*mn video.
Did I tell you that you can almost feel the grass as I stroke it.
Anna, get a life. (If you are a gardener, you can relate to how I feel. Right? *Sniff*)
So here is the video for all of you who want to get up close and personal with a crop cover. Touching isn’t it. Want one. I thought so.
