A timely and welcomed drop of rain this week, 1.5″ so far. Thankfully, a drop in temperature too. The ground temperature has also dropped 4c too, which is quite a drop in a week. This too is very welcome, meaning no flush of growth to control.
To clarify a point that has been raised many times over the last few weeks. I thank you all for your concern, however, the black marks on some greens, are the result of goose droppings and NOT oil or grease from our machinery.
The Barnacle Geese have, quite frankly, outstayed their welcome.
With the greens currently being cut at 3.5mm, we are averaging 9 on the stimpmeter. A speed that I am happy with and is sustainable.
