    Yeah, for like a week in late July and early August....then its back to snow plowing!!!

    Actually, I am right on the coast, so our mowing season starts about the 3rd/4th week of April....depending on temps. So I was thinking that an app. in May would be my first.....compost topdressing would happen from the 1st/2nd week in April into May.

    That also crossed my mind....what to do with the left over compost??? Feed it to the worms in my soon to be vermicomposting ad-venture!??

    This is a lot of help. The grass usually needs a first mow by late April. I would guess/hypothesize that if I have good soil to begin with, then the grass will green up nicely, and then with the apps of CT a few weeks later, it will continue on.

    Gotta go pick up one of the kids and get her to soccer!!!! I'll check back later....thanks to you all for all of this great info! I know that this will take off with the right marketing.

    And I will also attest that you think you know what you think you know and sometimes what you think you know take a different tangent from what I think I know so that what I think I know is different from what you think you know, but you think you know what you think you know and I think I know what I think I know................................(and it just gets uglier exponentially)

    For those that doubt, there are pages in the irrigation forum that prove the above :dizzy:

    it really makes no difference, the microbes that are able to be fermented in the brew are the same ones that would typically be available at that temp

    no worries, as a good friend of mine says

    YOU CAN' DO IT WRONG YOU CAN ONLY DO IT BETTER
