Wanted to just keep everything in one journal going forward. Time to get going with another season. Didn't do much at the end of the season last year as me and my wife had our first baby at the end of September. I went into dormacy at 5/8" on the reel low area and 2.5" on the big area. A couple of weeks ago I ran over the main area at 0.5" to clean it up, and then last week got the 15" Sun Joe dethatcher and tested it on half of the backyard and then scalped that section to 3/8". The Sun Joe made it extremely easy to scalp afterwards due to how much it thinned it out. I hope to get started on the rest of it sometime this week as well as getting my big area scalped. Also got to get prodiamine down ASAP the weather just hasn't cooperated with my schedule lately.

The section I did my little test scalp on

Quite a bit of rye survived the two MSM apps as well as an Alabama summer and is showing bad

Main yard as it sits now

Spread 50 lbs of urea on the big area after work today with some rain moving in to get it watered in good. Should be right around 1 lbs of N per 1000. Finally got to test out my newest toy, got it for $50 and just had to put a few parts on but in it for less than $100 just got to get that crack on the hopper fixed. Now I see why everyone wants one of these it's like a Cadillac compared to cheap spreaders.

Full property spray this morning. Ran 0.25 oz of PGR, 0.15 lbs of N, 6 oz of iron, and 0.25 oz of BIfen XTS on the main yard then ran 0.25 lbs of N on big yard as well as 0.25 oz of Bifen XTS.

Got some aerial shots to update grow in progress. We're getting so close going to keep up the nitrogen better this year and hopefully get it all the way. Also threw in a shot from July 2020 to compare.

PGR, urea, iron, and Celsius this morning. Going on vacation next week so bumped the PGR rate up to 0.38oz/1000 to really slow it down. Added the Celsius to clear our some crabgrass that is coming up due to my late Pre-e application, also wanted to see if it would do anything to the few spots of ryegrass that are sticking around in the backyard.
