The longest month of the year for me is October.
It is the month my golf course closes for over seeding.
What we basically do is dry up all the warm season grass and scalp it to the ground. It is a very dusty job. A lot residents leave town because the grass in the air is too much to handle. I just stock up on allergy medicine and try to stay awake while I’m operating heavy equipment.
We will hopefully have the scalping done in one week. We work dawn till dusk until it is.
Next we reseed the course with about 110,000 lbs. of cool season grass. Another 3 days, dawn til dusk.
That leaves 20 days of worrying about if that seed is going to grow. Waiting for that first sign of life can seem like an eternity. Like waiting for water to boil.
Like waiting for me to post
