    Picked up some products including surfactant. We are having highs in the 50s and lows in upper 20s. I guess I missed a jug when unloading last night. Well you know why I had this morning...,,a nice jug of sludge!!!

    A nice frost is expected the next few nights and it will hang around til 10 am or good sun. I'm just spraying weeds now and wondering what harm would come from spraying a frosty lawn?

    Probably will leave foot prints where you walk on the frozen blades to see all winter

    What type of grass? If grass is still green...hard frozen grass like bluegrass...will often result in brown footprints. Stay off till temp is above 32.

    See threads about "frost tracks".
