B-A-A-D Mistake

I live in the Charlotte, NC area. Just had my old inground swimming pool filled in, and was feeling so dadgone good about it, I ran right out to Tractor Supply and bought a bunch of bags of what I assumed was tall fescue. I spread it, threw some wheat straw on it, and irrigated it faithfully. Now that it's coming up nice and green, I read the label. 90% annual rye. I guess this season will pass well, but in May or so it'll all die out. Can someone suggest a course of action? TIA.

At least you have coverage for this season

Order some good TTTF or KBG from an online supplier. I use Hogans seed in TN They have very good TTTF cultivars and I am sure KBG but I haven't actually checked into the KBG. Do your seeding in the fall.
