185F is near to the temp of a dark car in the Oklahoma sun when temps are 113F or more. Shocked
Folks ain't got a sense of humor no more. They don't laugh they just get sore.

Need to follow the rules. Just hard to determine which set of rules to follow
Now the rules have changed again.

Agreed. Similar products also containing 2,4-D are available. There are several species of weeds commonly referred to as "creeping charlie". Some are easier to control than others. Also, in cool season grasses, it's best to not do the herbicide application in the hot summer months. I'd wait to fall.

I have tooooo much to walk around with a sprayer. How about something in pellet form like fertilizer.

There are some granular formulations... but you need to have area measurements down quite close and apply the correct amount per area. Most product labels have language such as... apply 1# per 1000 square feet or similar. You must read the application rate info on the product label. If not, you may torch the place!

My grass looks like schit. It's full of Rhizoctonia (disease), and I really don't want to buy any decent (expensive) fungicide. Been down that rabbit hole enough.

Ric,
What kills creeping Charlie?
I hear claymore mines worked really good. 
Life's concerns should be about the 120lb pack your trying to get to the top of the mountain, and not the rock in your boot.

Evening gents.

Just got finished hosting a picknic for my brother's birthday, my grand nephew's graduation from Army ROTC cadet school at Ft. Knox, and my other nephew's graduation from high school.
What a day. I may not cool off until January. At least I won't have to eat for the rest of the weekend.

Scrummy, glad to hear you got your certificate. Do you have your guns back yet?

Image result for susquehanna river


I remember growing up on the farm in Susquehanna County (PA) summers were usually about 85....a heat wave was 95. But it was still hot if you were out there baling hay and throwing hay bales. 

Anyway.....back to weed talk.....

Mornin' all, easy Sunday here.

Picking up my 9.3x62 and .44mag on Tuesday. Rest of them will be later in the week. The .404J is still having some work done but no rush for that so will collect later on.

Mornin gentsCoffee
Overcast here with high humidity and chance of showers, and temps in the 80s. It fits for muckin Funday.

Scrummy, how long is your new certificate good for?

May have a new tractor with backhoe by the end of the week.

Tuesday Is Tough Stuff.

Should have a new tractor sometime Friday. I'm kind of excited. It's coming with a 12" bucket on the backhoe, which is exactly what I wanted. Woo Hoo!

Oh yeah, the weather report here. Clear skies, nice breeze from the north, temps starting in the low 60s and going to maybe 80.

Nope, it's a tool that I need.
I wouldn't spend that kind of money on something that didn't launch either large or multiple projectiles in rapid succession, or go really, really fast unless I could live in it or it's a badly needed tool. I've thought long (too long) and hard about this, as to rent or buy. While renting would make sense if I was a skilled operator, I'm not, and the learning curve is to long, especially if I'm only renting one a couple of times a year. If I own my own backhoe, I can learn how to use it and better retain that skill since I will use it when I need it, instead of saving work up for when I rented one. I also have multiple projects to do, and many would last longer than a rental period would last. It would also be nice to have the thing there to use when I needed it. Yeah, I'll be playing with it when I get it to learn how to use it, and get the skill of operating the backhoe. I don't want to do what I did the last time. When I spent a quarter of the day burying a pipe and then accidentally ripped it back out of the driveway and had to start all over.
My Mustang should have been a backhoe, and the backhoe should have been a Mustang.
