Grand prize will be awarded to the first that can guess the cause of the below damage to my renovation. This may be the first ever. About 8 in across

Hmm. I'm guessing that something may have been sitting there on top of the grass which caused that damage. But what, I have no idea.

Hoping somebody else can ID it... and looking forward to having you tell us eventually if nobody manages to guess correctly...

Lost power, and set up my generator on the renovation. That was from the propane tank over a 12 hr period. No issue from the generator wheels or generator itself.

Nope, wouldn't have guessed that. At least it's not a mystery without a solution!

Tues night blew leaves off renovation and mulched mowed on the back half I did not renovated. (My riding mower is horrible mulching my leaves). The leave pile is where I will be renovating next year....and it could not handle a second batch of mulched leaves) Today. Struggling to keep up with the leaves and limit my mowing on the renovation... Today I blew off as most I could right out the gate behind my beige shed.... then mowed. Definitely have a few a couple more days of mowing with a lot of leaves on the ground based on what is left in the trees.
Trying to keep the mowing on the renovation at a minimum

Glad I got in a leaf clearing mow on Wednesday as today we have a bazillion white obstacles.

Have a lot of weeds so I sprayed Weed be gone at max rate last weekend. Had a lot of grub damage...my dog alerted me with his digging and eating before I even considered the issue but overall happy with the results. Put down dylox a month ago and the dog has not dug in the area for weeks. Will do some overseeding in the thin areas when I do the other half of the backyard renovation in a couple months
