    I noticed on some of my lawns that the crabgrass looks to be already dying out. Seems a bit early, I know we had a couple nights where the temps got to the upper 40's for lows but still I can't remember crabgrass going already. Chalk it up to the strange year we are having, I guess.

    I noticed crabgrass turning purple a week ago! I was in northern vermont last weekend and the leaves up there are already turning! I predict an early leaf drop here in the northeast followed by a fierce winter.

    I'm guessing it will be a cold one here as well. We've had a rather cool summer...not many days above 100.

    It's in full bloom here... just waiting for some cool weather to slow down a little. August is here and I'm getting a little burned out.

    i wish these temps would last, suppose to hit low 90's over the weekend. But thats cool compared to what we have had this summer. I've been doing leaf cleanups on a couple of properties along with mowing. Some trees have been dropping leaves since july here.
