https://i.postimg.cc/cCRNzGRY/BCA12-D5-C-1-F34-40-F3-8962-56-F4-BEA804-AE.jpg 2021 was a good lawn year for me. Now that it’s over here is the wrap up post. Weather Low temp. -17° on February 15th. Probably the scariest night of my adult life. Other than that winter wasn’t too bad. 5 or 6 days with...

Re: BUTTER 2021

jskierko All the pictures are from this year and from the month they represent. Snow cover for January and February. Flag for July. Most months I just use the best pic. I take a lot of pictures so I use the best for each month. And of course I have some lawn selfies for some months. It’s been a fun...

Re: BUTTER 2021

Merry Christmas! Record high Christmas Eve. 73°. Previous high was 68° in 1889. The weatherman said there are a lot of similarities between December 1889 and December 2021. This is the third record high this fall/winter. Two have been from 1889. So I guess we’re on a 132 year cycle. Anyway I mowed. ...

Re: BUTTER 2021

First day of winter. It’s gotta start before it can end. Temps have been more winter like lately but still not too bad. The color has really taken a hit in the last week and a half. https://i.postimg.cc/sxm8YsHJ/3-D85-ED13-B275-4-B89-9-D9-D-ACD6-E6-B5-AD76.jpg This the third year that I’ve given law...

Re: BUTTER 2021

Crazy day of weather yesterday. Seemed like June rather than December. Record high temp of 75. Strong winds all day. 40-50mph sustained winds with gusts up to 70mph from the south. It's Kansas so we are used to wind but this was a lot. Early evening the wind shifted to the west and brought a thunder...

Re: Should I water?

@MikeH Water if you can. 1)Its been very dry in our area. 2)Its always better for the plant to have moisture in the rootzone going into cold temps. It will eventually get cold. 3)Like @dport said, it can't hurt.

Re: BUTTER 2021

Winterized the irrigation on Tuesday. I probably should have watered one last time but I didn’t. Today was a record high temperature. 74° Previous high was 70° in 1889. The color is holding on but the fescue is not growing, the Poa triv is growing but the fescue is not. No pics. It was nearly dark w...

Re: BUTTER 2021

Jeff_MI84 Thanks! I mowed today. The turf hasn’t really grown since the last mow. I was just chomping up leaves and keeping the stripes sharp. Pretty good chance this is the last mow. With temps above freezing I’m going to run my irrigation tonight. It’s really dry. Lighting was much better in toda...

@Chris LI Thanks!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Like every year I have a lot to be thankful for.

The lawn is starting to fade. Still has decent color in the right light but slowly fading.

Re: Last Mow - Mulch or Bag leaves?

Why not both? The last two weeks I have double cut. First pass mulching. Second pass bagging to clean things up.

Re: BUTTER 2021

Another wonderful fall day today. 60° The lawn really didn’t grow much from last week. It probably didn’t need mowed. So I mowed it…twice. First direction mulch. Second direction bag. Took off an inch or less. Maybe the last cut of the year. Maybe not. Probably not. I hope not. https://i.postimg.cc/...
