This is the best my yard has looked since I moved here in May 2022…4 inches of rain in 8 days with an application of weed n feed. It’s like walking around on outdoor carpet right now.

That’s exactly how I felt last spring of 22, then last years summer drought wiped it out. Have yet to decide if I should have it reseeded, after 40 years of working on it I’m a bit frustrated.

 

yours looks great, maybe I should move to MN.

You need some zoysia! I’ve never done anything except cut mine. Here’s how she looks today

We've had a drought every summer since 2021 too.  We catch back up in the winter when we get a mountain of snow that melts.  Then it turns hot and dry in June again.

 

I have a sprinkler system for my yard but it cannot keep the grass lush and green for long periods of time without any rain.  Its meant to be more "complimentary" to average rain fall rather than the sole source of water.  I have mature trees too so they provide shade to some areas and keep it out of the baking sun.

 

I happened to time this just right, as I applied a heavy load of weed n feed to the yard a day before we started to get a series of systems moving through that dropped over 4 inches of rain in 9 days.

About three quarters of the way through mowing the Inlaws 5 acres yesterday when my John Deere sucked a drain hose from the camper under it from 2' away. It was a well built hose with 717 miles of wire in it.

Caught this joker watching everything I tied on. Just got to figure out who he's working for. He seriously thought I wouldn't see him. He ran off after I threatened to put him on a 2/0 EWG.

Ran into these fellas at a park in town, they are from Long Island, New York on their way to Sturgis for the bike rally then onto Yellowstone and wherever else they decide to go. Look at the engines, a pan head and a knuckle head and a rigid frame. Thats a tough ride on the glueteus maximus and the back.

That's impressive.  My hardtail days are looooooong over.  I'm more of the "Highway Lazyboy" guy now.  Love the panhead though.  Prettiest motor Harley ever made.  With the knuckle being the ugliest...lol.  Can't remember the last time I kickstarted a bike.  Now I'm about to hit FB Marketplace...

Last bike I owned was in '95 and I really don't miss it. I miss not having a boat which I have owned since I gave up bikes

Back in the 90’s there was a squadron of them in Michigan and they’d fly over quite frequently. They are pretty impressive. Obviously I never heard that gun in person but I could listen to that widow maker bark all day! ??

Fish on!!! This as close to fishing as I’ll get at work. I have a 170lb fish (coworker) I’m the other end pulling mule tape proofing our pipe.  I’ll be the fish at the next box. ?

Wouldn’t be Labour Day weekend around here without a bunch of fresh pasta sauce being roasted. Got some dandy fat Roma's from the garden this year, and we always roast them with a bunch of other good stuff, then blend it all up and freeze them. Best sauce I’ve ever had!

6poundbass went to the NHRA US Nationals with my dad, stepmom, brother, etc. He and my nephew went for a walk last night and he came back with a rear tire, clutch plate, and a parachute. ?
