The Burr Oaks put on 10 inches of growth on side branches this year. You can trace the amount of growth by the joint in the branch where I am pointing.
The Morning Doves are nesting.
Turf is looking good overall but showing signs of hunger after a long period of high humidity through July and August. Only a week ago the grass was lush and actively growing - now it needs some fertilizer.
Even though the daylight hours are fading and the temperatures are cooling dramatically, we continue to water. In fact Thursday this week was one of the heaviest waterings that we applied this whole year.
This week we will be giving the turf a good balanced feeding of NPK, and then we will begin the process of leaning it out before the winter months.
