    My Bahia lawns still have some stalks this week. I cut them short last week and they still need to be cut. Last year It was much different and slowed down sooner. I am ready for Eow . It cant come fast enough.
     
  2. Not sure what the problem is but I skipped Bahia this week. Didnt even grow from last...

    Not sure if you got the same amount of moisture as we did last weekend. We got roughly 10 inches last weekend...so some of the Bahia has perked right back up again.

    I am with him - I am so ready for EOW....we were able to skip two bahia lawns this week as well as one that is Bermuda/SA mix. The Bermuda was going brown too - but we will see with all the rain.
     
  4. That's prob the difference then bc we didn't get a lick of that rain.

    Deer down here are tiny, no need to fatten up for tough winters.

    I woke up to weak cold front that brought a little rain. Florida deer are what we call dogs in NY. Got my plane tickets for NOV 1st.
