I think you will have better results, now that you are watering and not relying on rogue downpours.

I'm more concerned about the robustness of our well pump. 5GPM x 10min x 12 sprinkle cycles per day = 600gal/day.

Were they alright with it?

Haven't heard back. Standing in front of the pressure tank, I can see/hear the pump cycling probably 5 times over a 10min period. Multiplied by 12 different sprinklings, it's a lot, but not sure how to make it any better. Used to have a 200gal storage tank in our old house that was used, but not getting into that again. Figures the week after we get good rains, it dries up.

Are you done mowing the pastures for the season or will it need it one more time?

IrishRob...    the pastures will continue to grow for the next couple of weeks but I don't like to keep them this low over the winter.  My thoughts are that we have so many deer.   If the field grass grows back to 6 to 8" thats good because it gives the deer more grass to eat when the snowpack is thin.

Hacked the **** out of my front shrubs this past weekend.  They were too overgrown.  Hoping they come back in the next couple years but right now they look like ass.

I think I may be doing the same.

Haven't mowed my yard in weeks and its great. So much more time to do other sh*t. 

I would have mowed mine sooner if I wasn't so damn busy but it had been the same for me up until last weekend.  I think I last mowed like the 2nd week of August. I've only had a couple fee weekends all summer to do yardwork.

Between new baby and everything else, yard has taken a back seat this year. Stupid dry spell since July has not helped. I don't know how Kevin wastes so much time.

Actually to me yard work is not a waste of time, kind of enjoy being outside ,getting some physical activity and doing things. Believe my yard is a disaster because of clay soils but I try to at least keep it up, sort of a hobby. I can totally see where Kevin is coming from. I would rather be home outside in the woods with the quiet than either inside or near crowds, just me I guess. If its not mowing, trimming, pool care, it's in the woods trimming dead branches but being outside is who I am.

I don't equate weekly shrub trimmings to doing stuff outside. It's the outdoor equivalent of cleaning.

Meh a half hour as part of a routine isn't really absurd, you have seen his property, minimum shrubs anyways. I am glad I dug up all the ornamental shrubs, pain in the arse.
