And what a week it was with air temperatures topping 90 degrees today and I remind you it was one week ago that we had frost the Friday the start of Memorial Day Weekend. No wonder nothing wants to grow.
Speaking of "not growing." The cold wet spring has greatly impacted recovery on our winter damaged putting green surfaces. Those damaged areas have been interseeded for the second time on June 2nd. While progress isn't as quick as I would like I would like to point out progress is being made.

Remember Greens Aerification starts Monday June 6th. Looks like the weather is cooperating albeit a little on the warm side. Severely damaged greens will not be aerified as I know they would not hold up to the mechanical activity losing large sections of mat in the process. _Mk.
