Passed the torch down to my daughter today. She’ll now be in charge of mowing for allowance $ Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

I don't think bush trimming was a big thing back in her day.

I wasn't sure whether I should post this in the " Lawn " thread and ruin your perfect green lawns or post it in the " Todays Chuckle " thread because Mother Nature sure has a sense of humor .

Yesterday I moved my 4 wheeler out of the shed and put it in one garage.  I  get the riding lawn mower out, start it up and dusted it off and park it in the other garage  Got the aerator ready to aerate and fertilize the lawn today . It rained last night and was drizzling a bit this morning. Out of freakin nowhere a few snow flakes started coming down . Figured it would end shortly . That " end shortly " turned into snowing a blizzard for the last 2 hours and still coming down. 

Since I took up both garages with the 4 wheeler and lawn mower , all the cars are covered with snow , my lonely aerator is stranded in the yard . Looks like our Azalea plants that have already flowered are loving the snow too . The good part is looks like I wont have to mow the lawn now until May !

Well your lawn is holding up from the fall application. I get the kids and chemicals thing for sure. But I'd also caution you that once you start losing control of the weed war that it gets exponentially harder to get control back.

I spot treat occasional weeds, but the lawn itself should choke out weeds.

At least it'll slow the grass and weeds down a little? Maybe Cuomo was right, maybe people really are leaving because of the weather.

Did you add seed this year yet?

Not yet gotta text Bob to remind him to drop some off. Glad I didn’t do it before the snow last week

I put down a little grass seed today in a bare spot next to my wood pile.  It looks like we are supposed to get a fair amount of rain over the next few weeks so it should do ok.

I cut my front acre of lawn 3 times prior to last weeks snow.  That slowed it down a bit, but it looks like it will need another cut tomorrow.  I only cut the rough acre behind that once so far, with a bush hog.

In this photo, from my bedroom window range session today, you can still see the vertical lines on the rough section in back and the horizontal lines with dandelions on the frequently cut part in front:

Well I put down 5 big bags of scotts triple action and hope it takes care if the dandelions. I have 5 yards of fine black mulch coming later this week!!

Mowed 14 of my 26 clients so far. Next week all will need mowing.  Will take me 3 days @ 7+ hrs a day for 3 1/2 days to mow and trim all 26 lawns with a 72" Zturn.

I'm going to regret it but I have held off so far. With rain for the next few days it will be ready to bale by next week.:bad:
