    Well, I know what to do with the whiskey. ;D

    What about the rye?

    I want to plant rye grass but I'm not sure whether it's too early to plant it or not. Anyone in southern climes have any ideas?

    Them good ol' boys were drinkin' whiskey and rye and singin' "This'll be the day that I die."

    Depends how far south you are... and you know when it gets hot and dry, it's just shredded wheat anyway

    You're in Texas or whereabouts, right? I thought Bermuda was a warm-climate substitute for rye. I live in the transition zone and thanks to a recent turf controversy involving one of my high schools, I know too fucking much about Bermuda, considering I don't own a home or golf.

    Try to find a good local Hardware store. Usually the owner types can provide valuable info for the area.

    Other thing you can do is go to local Ag bureau. You should be able to get good info on proper grass for soil.

    Also try Weather Underground.com - You can research weather history.

    Do your homework.

    If the river were whiskey and I were a duck, I'd dive to the bottom and drink my way up.[/oldlyric]

    Forget Bermuda. I live in a very "temperate" part of Texas (which means it bakes in the summer and freezes its ass off at least twice a year, and is good for one good snow and/or ice storm.)

    Native grass is St. Augustine. I just want to plant something that stays green through the winter.

    obvioulsy you have not listened closely to lyrics of a few Neil Young tunes.
  11. I have.
    The only lyric that comes close to the one about drinking whiskey and rye is Paul McCartney's immortal, "in this ever-changing world in which we live in."
