Don't leave grass seeds in your truck!

I was lazy and left a mostly empty bag of grass seeds in the back of my truck. The truck also had some old mulch and top soil left in it from the remains of the past season. I was shocked to find grass growing in my truck in December!!

Yeah, I've had the same thing in my dump trailer which I use for lawn renovations. I always end up with some seed spillage and end up with grass growing in all the nooks and crannies. I actually pull the grass seedlings out in strips, put them on the ground near where I park my trailer and now have some decent grass growing there, lol.

Slobs! You clean your rigs probably as often as you change underwear.

I'm still on the same pair of underwear since the start of the season!
Just kidding lol, but yeah I need to clean the truck out. But i'm tempted to see how the grass continues to grow as the weather gets colder! Experiment time lol

Been there done that several times, almost every year. Truck bed and the trailer. I'll be the first to admit I need to be better about cleaning my truck bed out. But dangit I get so busy I just never feel like it after a good hard day.

Oh Lord. Pennington grass seed. Looks like ya got it off the shelf at Lowes. Word of wisdom kid. Establish a relationship with a good seed distributor and forget the big box store horse$hit they sell. (No insult intended to horse$hit.) Clean that truck up too. Its disgraceful.
