Hahaha crabgrass, I laugh at thee.

Two nights in a row below 25 degrees. If there happened to be any germinated CG it is toast. One would now be fully confident running either Dimension or Barricade here for the next few weeks.

If you are in Canada and had the freeze we did, crabgrass is no longer out.

Just spotted crabgrass today in central NJ / it is in the 1st leaf stage, found on curb edge in the cluster of last years skeletons.
Here we go.

Dave.

Nothing here yet, and 27 degrees after falling temps all day today is what's predicted... Great warm rain over the weekend though...
