Stupid Global Worming! It never got cold enough, for long enough to put the St. Augustine grass into dormancy. So, here I am, on a break from mowing the freaking grass in February!
The grass growth did slow down a bit, giving the weeds a solid head start on the growing season.
It's not all bad though. I found the Rainbird battery powered irrigation timer I had misplaced...with the mower.
As The Bayonet is wont to say; Add it to the List of things caused by Global Worming.
Irrigation timers disintegrated by lawn mowers. The Harrah!
I also found one of the garden hoses. Fortunately, not with the mower. It was just buried in the grass, and interestingly enough, slowly working it's way down into the dirt.
