@g-man It's slowly waking up. I'm itching to throw some nitrogen at it soon.

That looks great. You should start the spoon feeding.

I was wondering if it's too early. Was going to hold off until 4/1. Here's how we're looking over the next 10 days:

I don't think so. Soil temps above 40F?

@g-man for sure above 40.

I dropped .5 N/M CX just to get more even prill coverage for now. I’ll see how it responds.

I could hit it again next weekend if it really greens up (.25 N/M Urea), or wait another week at that point.

I don’t really mind mowing every two days while locked down anyway.

+1 on the compliments on the beds! I'm still in the process of weeding and need to get it done, too. Thanks for being a motivator. I like the brown mulch the best, too. I changed over from the red about 3 years ago and think it looks more natural than the black.

Yeah, I really love the beds too. They have nice shapes and look super clean. Driveway is nice too!

First mow today. Greening up well. Some spots really need to fill in a bunch this spring.

Looks good man, don't worry about the spots filling in, just spoon feed fert every week or two and it'll fill in in no time.

She’s awake now. Sticking with 1.75” HOC. Not seeing fungus pressure. Sprayed Tenacity and Glyphosate on Tuesday — seems to be very, very slow to work this time. Wonder if the cold weather is messing with the app.

Got a lot planting to do tomorrow as well.

Ha! That would be interesting, right?? To clarify, Tenacity blanket spray; gly spot spray. :)
