This is what happens when you think you're seeding the grass but you're really dumping a handful of fertilizer on it. Science says it's from too much nitrogen and google says that the only thing you can do is replace the soil and grass.

I grew up out in the country in Colorado, and my family always had a huge vegetable and flower garden. After moving to New York City and being surrounded by concrete, I realized how much I missed anything green. Simple blades of grass became a luxury. I resigned myself to the idea that as long as I lived here, I needed to forget about my love of nature and save it for another life. But then, a miracle happened. In the great new york apartment seach, we found this little jem of an aparment and it has a big backyard in the middle of brooklyn. I felt like my soul came to life. An entire part of my personality that was hidden suddenly came out in full force. I was shoveling mounds of dirt and laying sod and planting hundreds of seeds. The garden has become an obsession/money pit/blessing and I can't wait for the summer. Thanks for reading our blog.
Welcome to our blog. This is my favorite picture from summer 2007. Last year we moved into our garden level apartment and what started out as a little garden turned into a full time vegetable farm. I had the brilliant plan of planting "a seed every two inches". Rookie mistake. I didn't really think it would all grow, but it did. By august, we had hundreds of tomatoes, cucumbers, beans, peppers, peas... more than we could even give away. It was a big wonderful mess and amazing to see a those little seeds transform into giant plants. We are really excited for the garden of 2008, so there is much to come in the next few months...
