As a quick update things are progressing nicely. The saying is you cannot cheat the calendar so all though we had a slow start by a certain date everything is back to normal. The trees are budding, The osprey's are back, The turkeys too and the grass is starting to grow. Fairway Fred is back at it with the first mowing this week. We mowed tees also this week for the first time. The winter damaged areas on 3 green and the practice green do not look that much different and only time will tell whether they actually recover fully. The plugs I pulled out and grew in my office for a week were put back into the nursery and look pretty good so I am still optimistic.

I have looked at the Tee-up NE auction and there are certainly some DEALS to be had. It ends Monday so check it out and help support turf research in New England.
