Actually saw it coming back today, with dark green patches of growth. And even the fungus-damaged areas are recovering, so that's nice.

Dropped my pre-m today in S.E. Mass, we are getting rain tonight, and there isn't any rain in the forecast next week.

The Forsythias have buds and are probably a few weeks away from full bloom, but rather use the natural rain to water it in, than start up the sprinkler already. Temps in the 60's next week led me to think this rain event was my best shot at getting the pre-m down.

Spread plastic Easter eggs with candy in them for the annual neighborhood Easter egg hunt. I don't think anybody actual hides them, so there's no hunting involved.

Lawn appears to be fully awake now, especially the poa triv. I sprayed my first round of Velocity on the TTTF lawn the other day. 2nd application goes down 21 days afterwards. Enjoying getting to mow at least once a week now!

I mowed the front and side lawns. Grass wasn't mowing height everywhere, but I'm using a manual reel mower, so I can't let it get away.

I'm doing too many other things in the back, so even if it needs to be mowed, it'll have to wait.

Applied Prodiamine. Deceided to do front and back yard (5,000 sf).
Used Mark it Blue. Hardly saw the blue at all. Not impressed with the stuff. :nea:

I actually did the first mow--rather late--on about half the lawn that had started growing. The minor damage from the snow mold is fading out nicely, but is still there in places.

Trim and mow.. lawn is waking up quite nicely with the warmth and rain of last week. Cooler weather coming. I noticed a few spots of what might be Poa Annua. Will treat soon. Also keeping an eye on soil temps in Summer Patch areas to hit proactively.
