When I finally buy my own house, the neighbors will hate me. My front yard will be restored short grass prairie with a creeping bent grass putting green right in the middle of it. The putting green will be raised up a bit with stone retaining wall.

Have your laugh and I'll post pics when I actually do it.

Ahh summer. Gotta love the grass and the informal neighborhood lawn competitions.

Here's our lawn back from 2005. I'm amazed at how much that autumn blaze maple has grown in three years time. Please excuse the image resolution, it was taken with our video camera.

solbes - I have a maple about that size that was planted this spring. Do you have a picture of yours now you could post so I can get an idea of what it looks like in 3 yrs?

I don't currently have any recent pics to post. The tree was in the ground for a year and half at that point. Not a whole lot of growth the first two years. Good growth the third year and great growth (2.5 - 3 feet?) last year as the roots were firmly established.

If I get some time I'll take a new shot of the yard and post it.

jwhjr,

You asked for a recent picture of the autumn blaze maple. Here's a picture I took tonight after mowing. A little hard to see in the pictures, but it has grown 5-6 feet in 3 years.

Here's my lawn. Sorry, I couldn't figure out how to resize the pictures. If someone else knows how to make them larger, feel free.

    • Hey @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change!
