.... when the drought turns your lawn brown and crusty, the weeds seem to get greener and more prolific ???

because you want the grass and not the weeds

Weeds are"survivors" and have much deeper roots and more mass to absorb and store available moisture and nutrients.Weeds need to survive to mate/seed and multiply.Grasses rely on their underground root system to multiply and proliferate/spread,can go dormant in stress periods and"return from the dead" when conditions improve.

I don't know either, but it's one of them things I'm goin' ta ask about when I pass through the veil to the other side. It's question number 10,005.

the other 10,004 would make a nice thread on this board !

Well, question 29 is: How come no matter how new or expensive or how much you maintain your farm/ranch equipment, it always breaks down at the worse possible time? Question 73: How come nobody stocks any parts you need, no matter what kind of equipment it is? Well that's two down, only 10,002 to go.

Fenwick, if only Orvall Murphy would post something here you might not need to wait that long.
Later Bob
