Re-Seasoning Your Cast Iron Grill - Beginner's Guide

A huge tree. If you saw my DIY rock garden video , you might have seen glimpses of the tree in question. This tree was not only an obstacle for my firepit placement, but it provided so much shade that we ended up with huge bare spots all around it. I can't tell you how many times we have talked about cutting it down. Okay, only I was talking about cutting it down , but hubby thought he would make one last ditch effort to grow grass around it. And with prayer and a lot of TLC, the grass grew! So what ab
