Temperatures are finally normal. According to the National Weather Service Chicago and Kane County Connects:
  • It was the only occurrence on record of seven consecutive
    90-degree days entirely within September.
  • It was only the 27th overall stretch of seven straight 90-degree days in
    Kane County ... ever.
  • All seven days of the heat wave were 92 degrees or above. And it's only the second time that's happened in the past 50 years.

great for the grow - in. Things are starting to look like they should, considering we seeded about six weeks ago. We are going to spray for broadleaf weeds in these areas in about week. Herbicides should not be used on newly seeded areas before six to eight weeks of growth.

October will be spent mowing, watering and mulching leaves. As dry as it is, make sure you are watering any newly planted trees or shrubs. There is still plenty of great golfing weather left, so don't put those clubs away yet!
