3 weeks after 200 lbs. of soybean meal! A motley mix of old KY31 and lots of Pennington Ultra Blue Fescue seed from Lowes.

Yum!
How many pounds per thousand and what kind of price for the soybean meal?
Thanks for sharing!

Probably around 20 lbs. or so per 1K, think I paid $35-40 for 200 lbs. Price was definitely more than last year.

Soybeans and other organic fertilizers are commodities so the cost will vary from season to season.

That really does look good blip01. Thanks for sharing.

HEY! Where are the weeds? Aren't organic lawns supposed to be full of weeds???

Well, I do have a problem with some persistent clover in the front lawn.....shhhh, I spot spray with a little WBG. :-o

Also, I consider the KY31 a weed......but not much I can do about that now.

Where in NJ do you get your soybean meal? That is cheap!
