I hate to keep harping on the grass but it is such a perfect vehicle for illustration. He laid down seed and then covered it with potting soil. I personally thought it was too much potting soil. For about 5 days nothing was coming up and I feared that it was too much soil and the shoots would never get out. I started to say something to him – my need to be right. But I held back. This was his thing. He was working so hard on it. I didn’t really know for sure. So why not just shut up? So I did shut up and voila, the spikes started appearing and I realized that he did know what he was doing.
Sometimes you just gotta believe. And many times you just need to shut up!
