My daughter has inherited my procrastination, but I'm told to expect a Joule sous vide machine any day now.
Did you get the sous vide yet? Any reports?

Nice! I've been looking at sous vide lately but have never done it. Looks like some amazing cooking results.

Re: Looking Forward to 2021 Season

We just renovated our lawn in fenced in back lawn (about 3/4 acre) and we have three dogs (1 small and 2 large) who use it, so I'm looking to develop a strategy to minimize damage (nitrogen and OM) and quickly repair the damage that I do get (e.g. nursery out front for patching). It will never be pe...

Re: 'New' House, New Lawn Renovation Continued 2021

Keeping a journal is interesting. How we think things will go and the reality are very different. Also I found out our memory of dates and applications etc., often aren't very factual either. I have a different understanding of fall and winter also. These things don't really go by the calendar. Dec...

I've never used one, but my wife got one as a xmas gift for my sister in law. It certainly is an imposing piece of kit.

I'm a suffering PSU, but great game on Friday and I hope OSU plays just as smart and angry against bama. Big 10 would benefit too.

Re: My mom

Nobody traveled (not even Boston to Sharon). They set up a live stream of the funeral. Fittingly (considering her technical prowess), they had difficulties at the start. They finally got it going. There was a brief period of things getting started, followed by my brother saying that somebody was re...

Re: Winter Solstice: The Days Start Getting Longer

So far, they're not preparing anybody, really. Hopefully that changes. But I'd rather have the shot than the disease, like always. A day of discomfort is nothing compared to a lifetime of the after-effects people are showing from getting sick (up to and including death). I just had the shingles sho...

I did ok... Dewalt table saw and matching sliding compound miter saw. Already used them to convert a kitchen closet into a pantry. Also, got a new pair of Birkenstocks for my old flat feet :)

So sorry to hear about your mom... It does seem that she taught you a sense of humor and I hope you gave her a good send-off in spite of this COVID mess. R.I.P.

Re: Merry Christmas to All...

I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas! We did a zoom call with my siblings for our annual Christmas Eve gift exchange. A little odd, but it was nice to be able to have nieces and nephews join from far-flung locations.

Re: Question re rock salt and grass

I also worry about all of the delivery people these days since we use Amazon and other delivery services quite a bit due to COVID. I use Magnesium Chloride mostly and put it down to keep everyone safe.

Re: 2020: What Did You Do On Your Lawn Today?

Me, too! I did watch it snow on my lawn today, a full half inch of the stuff. I was in West Chester driving back to Harrisburg around noon yesterday and I had a nice little snow squall on my drive. We didn't get much of anything here, but I guess winter is upon us! Good news is that I have the trac...

Re: Lawn recovery

Morph is the man! Good advice on the basics. The key, in my experience, is to be patient, develop good fundamental skills, and learn proper timing. Exactly. It takes a while, but eventually everything gets there. This is a first-year lawn, it just needs some help. Getting older stinks in many ways,...

OK, then. Get used to the sidenotes and Fun Facts. I'll put them in parenthetical statements so you can skip them if you want.

Iron's just weird...
Great information that really helps me better understand the OM relationship to iron.

When I was doing the research for the "Fall Nitrogen Regimens" approach and article (it took five years), I came across that research. Here's what I found: A fair amount of the research took a perspective of "which is better - early Fall Nitrogen fertilization, or a single Winterization application...
