Can I just toss some product down and it will grow like you do with your grass?

There is some native "Weeds" growing in this open area and I am wondering if it is too late to toss something down?

Any product suggestions?

In dealing with BLB, I think you should be able to use a late season variety.

You gotta do some kinda prep work. There are some kinds on the market that call it a "throw and grow" mix. Sure, some might grow, but I just cant see it being enough to do much good.

Get some dirt worked up, and then you can have a fighting chance at getting a plot to grow.

Absolutely there is time to plant. You can plant up to Sept 1 depending where you are thinking of doing this. A tad earlier than Labor Day would be better overall. I've still got a handful of bags of seed left if anyone is interested.

I can't really get any big plows in there -- I suppose a rake? Any other ideas?

The other spot has a lot of BIG BIG rocks -- any ideas there? We could get into that spot but it would take a lot of time to move the big rocks.

I agree with BLB, you need to do some ground workup to get the seed to grow, either with a 4 wheeler or a garden tiller or by hand raking. Consider hitting it with Round-up 7-10 days before you work it up and plant. Better yet, use round up, work up in 10 days, let it sit for about 3 weeks so that most of the weed seeds germinate, work up again and plant. Shoot for a mid Aug planting. Does this spot get any sun? Planting totally in shady spots isn't the greatest, plants need sun to grow.

Both spots get sun.

Thanks BJ!

      measured ice this morning.   It has not changed in the last 48 hours.    Just the shorelines have melted.   The quality of ice has gone down though.   Still Driving my wheeler on shoe.    Still 20-28 inches out there away from current.    The bay by winter access is the thickest at 30 inches.   Don

      Thanks for your efforts!!! Let me know if you need any free city garbage bags; I'm involved with the City of St. Cloud Green Team. You can place them at the Munsinger Garden greenhouse, or any trail access points for easy Park Dept. pickup.

      Going to get the kids out on the river today with gloves and garbage bags for Earth day.Plenty of garbage around the local community spots that can be removed.Im sure there will be more but it's something to do and it will look a little prettier out there.

      Wow!  Didn't realize it was that bad up there.  That's going take a long time to get turned around.

      To give you a idea of what it is like here this is how my dock has sat since last August. The river is at lake level here.  Almost no Spring flow from melting snow. Just a trickle here and there. I've burnt any grass off for 200 feet around my house, farm buildings and farm equipment so there is a little protection in case a big fire gets going. The grass has been burnt off between the highway and the airport to give Waskish a little protection in case a fire gets going south of town. Westwind cleaned their channel last fall so they should be OK for boats. Total acreage of URL and LRL is 272,000 acres so it would ONLY take 177,261,312, 000 gallons of water to raise the lake level 2 feet.

      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.
    • pikeandchester
      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.
