Bio Char Creation

I’ve found numerous videos on youtube of folks making thier own biochar using gassifiers or charcol retorts. Seems like the trick is all in the build but after that its easy peasy... has anyone tried or entertained the thought of building one ? Seems like a sweet project... could be fueled by wood p...

Re: Better leaf mulching with damp leaves

Its ok for the leaves to stick around until spring...

Worms will eat them then as well as the herd.

Just need to be choopped up enough so that it sifts between the blades. Kind of like leveling with sand.

PGR effects in shaded areas

Curious what type of growth you all have noticed when using pgr’s in shady parts of the lawn opposed to sunny? In shade the far red light makes it through the canopy and thats the plants sign to grow vertically and “get out of” what ever is blocking the sun. Was the pgr business as normal with perha...

It can be bad. It depends on the moisture content of the leaves and how low of a temp the grass is at. It can kill the crowns.
So probably the worse case scenario because the grass hasn’t gone dormant yet..

I think ill track in the same path to reduce the number of damaged sq ft.

Re: What am I doing wrong?

This might be a little off topic but can you damage grass if you spray herbecides on relatively dormant grass/weeds (if not totally dormant)? I.understand the effect on the weeds would be minimal but any damage to the grass itself since it cant repair/grow or is it not taking anything so no problem...

Walking On Frozen Grass

Tree fell and had a lot of piles to take to the curb last night for pick up.... Temps were below freezing and my grass is permanently mated. Reminds me of those contour gauges used to find a unique feature for wood scribing. Is this bad, ok or indifferent? Obviously avoidance is best but is t always...

Re: Better leaf mulching with damp leaves

Sucked up leaf from the street and threw on lawn with one pass after the dumping. I think dampness helped pick them up but made it harder to get them down to confetti size. Funny moment, i never bag and forgot the timemaster has a plug in the leaf chute... was dumbfounded for a couple of minutes. ut...

I wonder if I can use this method to bag leaves out of the street and move onto lawn. Typically the will move around.

Re: New Fertilizer to Check out!! ProPeat

How is this different than spreading sawdust from a carbon perspective?
The fact its charred?

Wood has a higher carbon content.

Re: Tricking KBG to Spread - Indoor Winter Grow

A little update on my setup. I wanted a way to lower and raise lights for access and general adjustment. I priced out some pulleys and found that HF has a cheap bike pulley kit which as worked pretty good. The mounting is barely passing but gets the job done. https://i.postimg.cc/xjgxb2m1/5511-BA4-D...

Re: Aerate vs Verticut vs Slitseeder

Having used both, Slit seeders dont work when on uneven surfaces as rhe blades wont ouch evenly. You can counter act this by digging deeper but it the rule if thumb is that the seed shouldn't be deeper than the length of the seed. For kbg, this isn't much this slit seeder will miss spots.

Re: Tricking KBG to Spread - Indoor Winter Grow

So, ran into my first problem... the introduction of milorganite created a bad smell. I dont think its actually the smell of it but rather the breakdown from it... plus the mold growing on the paper. I freaked out and put a layer of clay based kiter litter... seemed to help the smell so far... any o...

Re: Tricking KBG to Spread - Indoor Winter Grow

I’ll get some pictures tomorrow but I put down a heavy dose of Milorganite on Sunday. The very next day the herd was aggressively going to town on the paper I put down... covered in black stuff that looked like mold. Is this pythium? (I didnt see any web looking things and dont expect to consistent ...
