Rain yesterday afternoon, early this morning. Temps high 80's low 90's. Grass still growing. EOW still a ways off for me.

Dry season means more irrigation problems to $olve

True, but the next 6 weeks will be slower growth than June, July, august. Shorter days mean less growth. Bahia will def be EOW first week of October.

Luck you. Bahia is crap grass that defies cutting and never looks good. The poor mans turf. I refuse to install it.

You got that right, can't get your blades sharp enough to not leave stragglers. I've had a little experience with it, glad I don't have to cut it anymore. I would charge a premium to cut it again.

I just got done cutting four, side by side that had as much growth as I have seen all year! I've never seen anything like it. You would swear it had been two weeks or more since they were cut, but all were cut last Monday. I hold you personally responsible for this

I also blame the usual suspects for dropping nitrogen bombs on them in the last 10-14 days.
