More of a lawn/ grass question. I have an area of my lawn that looks like winter took a toll on it.

Think it's to early to replant grass??

Not too early to sow grass seed but maybe with rain and warmth some of that will still green up. Maybe...

Definitely not too early. Some alfalfa being seeded already so you're safe glenn. Well, at least for seeding grass anyway... :evil:

I put a bunch of seed down last fall but ya I have area's that could use more.  Talked to the garden tiller guy, last year he tilled it up the 20th of April,  looking a little earlier this year.

Unless it's a big area I'd just try & rake it to see if there's anything green underneath, then hope for some rain. When I worked on the golf course I did that a lot on the tees & greens, would lightly brush in a little topdressing a couple times too. Within a week or so it'd usually come back.

Got thru pruning our production fruit trees and did the major surgery on the crabapples. More important to get the face snappers, eye gougers, headphone grabbers and glasses snatchers out of the way first. I'll do the cosmetic stuff later if there's time. The daffodils are opening this a.m. If it gets to 80 like they're talking, they should be in full bloom by this evening.

I did that with our lilac bush.  Cut out all of the big stumps so it is new shorter stuff.  Looks a lot nicer.  Shorter too.  Hope we still get flowers.

Those cap removers and scalp scarifiers are the bane of my lawn mowing existence. Never felt a bit of remorse after cutting a larger than anticipated limb in order to make lawn mowing less hazardous. I do say little prayer sometimes though. It goes: "Take that, you SOB!"  :angry:

Good question on the delete post thing. Think I've been able to delete the content using the modify button. Then there's a blank post which in my case everyone just assumes I've gone a 15 rounder with the juniper berry extract so they expect it.  :tequila;

Close to 12-13 for me, from ~ 82 - 95. Loved it, the boss was a :fishing: buddy & he even came up here quite a few times. Wish it'd paid more cause I pretty much lived there. Not workin, I was playin, not playin, I was  :drinking: there. :crazy:

I worked at Green Lee Golf Course in Alberts Leaf in 71 and 72.  Loved doing it.  Planned on going to school for it.  My buddy did and the pay was lousy even at very big fancy courses across the country.

I worked summers because I was teaching the rest of the year. Loved that outside work. I started many flowers at home for the flower beds at the course. Rode a zero turning radius moor in the rough. That thing was awesome.

Pretty much my own boss back then but it was usually fairways or greens for me. Most of our equipment was pretty old & beat up, so it usually took some TLC. Worked a few summers with 1 of our HS's teachers/golf coach too, a good guy & we got along great.

Did a quick bomb session after chores in the gardens last nite. Trenched and worked manure with a little urea in around the rhubarb. Took the dead residue off the peonies and removed the grass clippings/leaf mat from the lilies of the valley. Daffodils were out in full force this a.m. so figured before the wind beats the snot out of them I'd snap a photo. Dug them up at Mom's last October and planted the bulbs in a hurry at our place. Grateful to have some of them bloom. Reminds me of her and her love of gardening.

Finally supposed to get some rain tomorrow. I would guess some of you south of here have gotten some rain yesterday and today. My wife's daffodils are just coming up. Today I cleaned the leaves out of the blueberries raspberries and asparagus. Haven't uncovered the strawberries yet. Don't want them blooming and then get frost.
Juneberries are always first to leaf out. looking good.

Just a guess but ~ 1.25" here, 1.5" maybe but I doubt it. Bemidji's 24/7 weather channel was calling for another 1/2-3/4" today earlier. :happy1: :cool:
