|Bentgrass Germination in Slits|
|Bentgrass Germination in Slits - Part 2|
The rain soaked a few areas more than I would like. I'm seeing good germination in areas with moderate soil moisture -- say halfway up a hill. The areas with puddles are having difficulty. Rain is not always our friend. Most of the time, we would prefer to supply the moisture ourselves. Here is a low-lying area that is problematic:

Overall, we are happy to see some germination on this fairway. I would expect to see some of the tees start germinating in the order that we seeded them last week. I'm guessing we may see some action on #4 and #2 tee by Sunday or Monday. We are looking at some 90 degree days next week so some mid-day watering will need to be performed. The trick now is keeping the seedlings alive!
