Bought two bags of Scotts' 5,000 sqft winterizer fertilizer today. Going to force feed my lawn now and then at the beginning of November. Lawn looks much better this fall compared to last year but there's still a few spots that always seem to die out every summer that's kind of frustrating.

I was putting down grass seed a couple of weeks ago, and my BIL (who knows everything about everything, and will gladly tell you everything about everything) was telling me I should wait until a the last phase of the moon or something like that, to plant grass seed because it needs so many hours of darkness to generate.


Is there any truth to that? I ignored him and planted the grass seed anyway. I'm just wondering if there was any truth or science to what he was saying.

Perfect timing.

Fall is the time to push the nitrogen.

Is the dry pattern in the East Coast finally breaking? Hopefully tonight and tomorrow supposed to be about an inch of rain which will be a welcome relief. Plants are craving rainfall as is the lawn.
