I fed the birds. This morning there was a male goldfinch on the hopper feeder. I've also seen several grackles, sparrows, mourning doves, and a pair of brown thrashers.
Round one, we walked around the prairie garden deciding what paths and other parts to mow. Then I cut brush from around where the mower used to rest, raked the bare patch of dirt there, and threw grass seed over it.
A previous patch near the telephone pole has the clover sprouting, but not the grass yet. The first patch near the patio has quite a bit of new grass. Some that I planted last year has taken hold in other places. \o/
EDIT 5/14/19: Round Two, I planted milkweed, zinnia, and sunflower seeds in part of the prairie garden that was just mowed.
EDIT 5/14/19: Round Three, I pulled weeds, raked, and then sowed grass seed in a patch by the forest garden, trying to shrink the weedy area there.
