Plant Grass Seed After the Snow Flies
I noticed that several gardening centers around here marked their grass seed to 50% or more off. This is a good time to buy it on sale. However if you live in a part of the country that gets snow, don't plant it yet. Wait until it starts snowing, then throw down your seed. The snow protects it from the birds eating it, and as the snow later melts off. The weight of the snow and the movement of the melting will cause the seed to be pulled into the ground. In the spring you will have a nice patch of new grass coming up.

Wish I'd thought of this. It's genius.
As long as all the little creatures out there that are tunneling under the snow don't eat the seeds.
