Seems to me if I feed organic to late in the season I run the risk of either run-off or mold. If that is the case it would make more sense just to wait until spring to feed and make Sept the last feeding.
"Runoff" is no more a threat in October than in July... It all depends on when the cloudbursts occur... Frozen turf is a different story...

Just be sure that all of your organic matter is in the soil and protected by the roots of the plants, so it doesn't wash over the top of the terrain.... and you'll be fine...

Undigested organic material sitting on top of the soil, is really made evident by the snow, and by the sediments at the bottom of the regional drain... Usually a swamp, lake or stream... common sense makes sense...
Now that I know that clay's texture(platelets) has nothing to do with water infiltration, percolation, or drainage
,,, I wonder what does...
