Charmion, you got lucky, being able to schedule that A/C replacement!

We've had a remarkable amount of rain in the last week and the lawn is heavy with dew in the mornings now, so I filled a "puffer" bottle with AgriLawn Crabgrass Killer (it's an organic mix of cinnamon and turmeric and I think baking soda) to distribute around the wet grass in a couple of areas of the front lawn. This is supposed to be an effective treatment for several of the weeds in the turf, but leaves the Bermuda alone (though I'd really love to nuke all of the Bermuda, front and back, and put in Buffalo grass). Decluttering weeds is a big deal; if this works I'll be out there a lot more with this stuff. I don't care what grows out there, I mow it and it looks like turf, but the neighbors always seem to be struggling with weeds the are seeded from what is in my yard. The bottle originally came with diatomaceous earth, and I'll have to find another one because I don't want to forget and spray this on the counter tops - AgriLawn has turmeric, meaning everything will turn bright yellow upon contact with moisture, so I don't want to accidentally spritz the kitchen next time ants come in.

I was going to mow this morning, but instead I'll let that powder work and I'll mow tomorrow.

I'm set with eBay stuff to start today.
