Looking good! What was the issue with last year’s seed? I’m pretty SSSure(hint?) I know who you’re referring to, but I bought from them for my last renovation and was pleased, so I bought more this year for my new house. Still fallowing here, so I haven’t got it down yet, but now you have me a bit worried. lol

I am on vacation left the sprinklers as originally setup. Did see that I had a heat wave since Sunday. Need to figure out why I have this thin area…

That is filling in really nicely. It’s nice to be at the point where you can mow!
