OakNut, ... ditto on the need for rain.
Issac brought very little,not enough to do any good. It amounted for a couple of quick showers. Initially, the forecast included our region in the 2-4" rainfall. Yes, we were at the extreme edge, but enough to cover the entire SW region.
Dry leaves are in abundance now. I blew out beds yesterday, mulched more leaves under Red Crimson King Maple trees. The Weeping Cherries are drying up and falling. Walnut leaves, the same.
But, the grass growth rates are dismal. I cut full schedule yesterday and today, but one was iffy. Another was a cloud of dust over much of the property, lots of bare spots.
My hope for a wet end of August, for a good run-up into September -- failed!
