I cut my grass 6 days ago.  SIX!  I had to cut it again tonight and I really considered getting the vac out because it was so long.  It's September!  I usually cut once every two weekks this time of year and that's because I miss doing it (I do like to mow).  It's more like May mowing instead of September.  Anyone else noticing this?

it has been around 12 days since I could mow! We got 7 inches of rain last week and 8 the week before. t
Mowed the lawn yesterday and this morning. running in water in the low placees.

Started to mow the pasture this afternoon and again running iin water half way up the hill??
Yeah most Augusts and into September grass is burned off so all I am doing is topping the weeds.

  Same here in the northeast!!!!!!  Great year for gardening thou, Everyone I know with a garden is having a banner year and they say the corn is going to be a bumper crop so the price of feed is going down, good news all around I say!!  other than mowing the grass every 5 days still.  Besides---- seat time is always good time.

8.1" of rain from Friday until right now. The yard is looking great. Work sucks, we're going to have to boat in tomorrow, but my lawn is green!!!!!

PS - that is not too much water, I have extremely sandy soil. I can handle two inches a day for a week or two.

That's good to know as I have to travel to Alabama at the end of the month for work. Dry I can handle, it's that heat that gives me problems.
