But now I’m curious about sod. It was a fascinating thing today to watch my brother-in-law’s yard go from dirt to green, lush grass in 6 hours.

I so often come across references, both on and off 43T, to books or people or practices that sound fascinating but that I don’t have time to read up on right then, and then when I do have time I’ve forgotten what it was or can’t find the entry.
First up is this thread, which sounds wonderfully inspiring and references a couple things of which I’ve never heard and would like to know more. 5 years ago
