The last two days I have been frantic to get things done before it starts raining (which is supposed to happen tonight).
- Yesterday, I put down pre-emergence herbicide (keeps weed seeds from germinating) to help prevent the summer weeds in my Zoysia lawn and in my son’s Bermuda lawn. Both had not greened up, so after talking to the folks at Ewing, I felt it was okay. I know I am late, but the rain and cold had kept me from putting it out for the last few weeks.
- I also sprayed for weeds in the lawns that respond to a spring post-emergence herbicide (will kill some growing weeds). I used a product called Speedzone, but almost any product that is recommended for spring weed control will do. Of course, if you have Poa annua, it will not kill it.
- Another task: I turned a row in my vegetable garden and direct seeded three packages of lettuce seed (Bibb and Salad Bowl) and also reseeded some blank spaces in the row of spinach I put out early. I had to water the transplants, as they were in early wilt and could not wait on tonight’s potential rain.
