    Yep, and yep.

    This is more useful than northern hemisphere seasons.

    We officially say Autumn, winter, spring, summer. But the aboriginal seasons work better. Then every 7 years, add "everything on fire" season

    Well off to a long day of mowing.
    No rain for today and the Barry Obama storm will hit here in a couple of days.

    I just got led here by tapatalk. Sorry, I didn’t mean to burst into this group.

    It’s interesting about the differences in the Wheel of the Year in the Northern and Southern Hemispheres. I’m glad I saw that.

    Cromwell, I hope you don’t mind my interruption. Can I come back sometimes?

    Have a good night and day, you two.

    Is it really hot where you are? The weather broke here for a few, but now it got hot and humid again.
    Take care.

    When you get back at it, can you move a little west? Just don't have it in me right now to mow. It'll just have to grow.

    Yep works well just does not last as long as other chemical ones.
    But does not cause cancer, etc or kill trees that have roots in the application zone.

    I have tried many of the home remedies for killing crabgrass but nothing works better than treating it in the fall and early spring with Scotts Crabgrass Preventer. Baking soda kills it but also kills the grass.

    all my plants are adapted to semi arid areas.
    bushes, ground covers, trees, weeds.
    grass died durring the 7 year drought.
    picked grapes today.
    i have a vine providing shade under my arbor.
    the fruit is a bonus.

    I have a rental inspection on Thursday. Would you pass this yard, if you were a property manager? I'll probably hose down the chairs and concrete.

    Still storming and raining so I spent some time in my mad scientist lab and made up a rechargeable headphone amplifier that runs off of a couple of my old HG2 batteries. Balanced charges with Micro USB. Wife is getting harder of hearing...
    Need to order some little magnets to hold the battery door on. will put in my Aliexpress cart.
    And made up another batch of Banana nut bread.
    Cleaned some house too.

    i did concrete wwhen i was young, with my dad.

    those 2x4's that are in the middle. get those out, unless you plan to pour in sections.

    and yes, i would put in those expansion pieces. you may not need them, but you would not want to find out otherwise.

    All done now.

    Yes I poured the outer two sections first, let them dry, took out the middle 2x4s and poured the last one.
