Got the prodiamine down in the backyard. First time spraying. It took way longer than granular obviously but should be worth it for longer protection.

Re: Forsythia Watch

My Prodiamine will go down tomorrow. Forsythia aren't quite in full bloom yet here but getting close and it's warmer weather here for the next week anyway. In line with the gddtracker as well.

Re: Milorganite sale

You should be able to see the sale price on line and then use that. Maybe take a screenshot? I bought it online last year.

Re: Other hobbies?

I enjoy investing and post over at bogleheads. Golf and kayaking as well although with 3 kids that's a big reason why my lawn has become a new hobby!

Re: Looking For A Spreader

I don't know much about the Agri-Fab spreaders. I looked at it and the gearbox is definitely fully exposed. But, if you keep it lubed and stored inside dry it shouldn't be a problem. It looks somewhat comparable to the Earthway 2170 which is what I purchased last year. Although it's $40 more.

Re: Too soon for preemergent weed control?

First, I'll be watching a combination of the GDD tracker and the forsythia. Then I'll run some extremely complicated calculations which will be followed by self doubt. Lastly, I will completely mistime my pre emergent application and sulk while I hand pull weeds for months to come. Forsythia is the ...

I'm hoping this sale happens again this year. I got 12 bags last year delivered to my local True Value. It sold out very quickly.
