    Heavy heavy lawn thread 2019

    I always use to do the died black mulch for years, I stopped recently just because I feel like it fades pretty quickly. Looks good though.

    Just did a fresh cut and also noticing a bunch red thread patches that were hiding under the longer grass since it has been about a week since last mow.

    This is the summer weather I envisioned when I moved to New England, mid-upper 70s low dews and perfect sleeping weather. Temp down about 20F in a few hours down in to the 50s now. Of course we will have our bouts with higher temps and dews at times which will make a few posters happy, but sign me up for this.

    Yesterday took the kids swimming to a local lake--pretty shallow so water temp was somewhat tolerable--beautiful day. Today, heat blasting in the house and car mid afternoon--45F with gusty E/SE winds blowing rain and leaf debris sideways...lucked out with those 3 holiday weekend days.

    Mike--you need to wait until your newly seeded area is more established before pre-emerg. Suppose to wait until it matures a bit--meaning those little stringy grass blades get 3 or 4 tillers. Pre-emerg target small immature plants, including grass. They dont actually stop stuff for germinating, but attack them when they are young and small. There is one product at big box stores that Scott's sells that you can use that provides pre emerg and work kill grass seed. It's a starter fert with mesotrione as the active ingredient

    Funny as Alex mentioned Orlando as I just got back late Friday from there as well, dews and heat felt nice nice when you have easy pool access. Back to perfect NNE spring conditions for a morning hike..

    Wondered why my bird feeder was empty. Wasn't knocked over, still standing, but not a seed left after being totally full. I guess bad time of year to leave bird feeders out over night. https://video.nest.com/clip/15d2d9016002408c8726087e2b4c1412.mp4

    As Gene said, before I moved to VT I noticed a lot of Bamboo in SE PA. Looked to be getting out of control in spots. Definitely pretty invasive down there.

    I'm more of a mulch guy, but that does look pretty good.
