re: Any of you fellas plugged Zoysia? - Tiger-Striped-Bass
Disclaimer: In the preview, my pics aren't showing up. Maybe they're too big. If they don't show up after I submit, I'll work on it. Sorry to do this, but links are the only thing working for me... I have Emerald Zoysia, so this may not be directly applicable to you, as it spreads very slow...

re: Preparing to move in 8 years? - Tiger-Striped-Bass
[quote]I probably need to be selling larger items that aren't frequently used[/quote] Unless it will devalue greatly by then, I'd probably wait to sell until the proceeds are handy for the move and new start. Sell it now and you won't have the stuff, or the money by then. ...

re: Bigfoot Is Real! - Tiger-Striped-Bass
The lead up is ridiculous. "There's usually no bears at this time, but let's go have a look". 50 yds past the last house, still alongside street utility lines, "what's that". I just so happen to have my handy dandy drone that I just bought at Target and I can't wait for spring to make my story more ...

re: Your daughter dating someone in a wheelchair - Tiger-Striped-Bass
First, in that situation, I would hope to have a reaction more similar to yours, and not the girl's father. I certainly would not say all the things he apparently said. I would have a serious discussion to make sure she realizes what she's embarking on, and then let her decide. Now... with that ...

re: Found some torpedo grass in St. Aug and small patch in centipede - Tiger-Striped-Bass
Yes, I would. And I would hold off re-sodding for a while, as the new sod probably wouldn't tolerate it for a while unless you remove dirt and replace it with fresh dirt. It's hard to know how big of an area you're dealing with. But it looks to be well-flourishing in those small pics posted. And I k...

re: Found some torpedo grass in St. Aug and small patch in centipede - Tiger-Striped-Bass
[quote]WhiskeyThrottle[/quote] Don't be so glad to read this. You're not much better off with zoysia. I've had emerald zoysia since 2005 with a couple spots of TG. Thought I was finally done with it last year, but I have a tiny spot (one or two stems with blades)that re-appeared this year. I used...

re: Best part about wining tonight.. - Tiger-Striped-Bass
Maybe it’s been said already, or maybe it’s just me. But it seems to me he has too much gyrating going on with the bat pre-pitch and isn’t completely ready for the pitch when it comes, and takes a wild swing that has no chance. ...

re: Stanford pitcher be like... - Tiger-Striped-Bass
If a move toward the plate is a balk, how is that not a balk? He takes a step towards the plate and rotates his shoulders toward the plate three or four times every pitch. ...

re: Help me make a MSM Turf cocktail - Tiger-Striped-Bass
[quote]If you do in fact have torpedo, my condolences.[/quote] True. If it's just a small spot here or there (not likely if it was a pasture with it), I have found success spraying with quinlorac or Drive XLR8 to get the leaves wet, then put a light dusting of the quinlorac granules over and arou...

re: Zoysia grass growing in clumps - Tiger-Striped-Bass
Are there uneven spots/divots in the yard that allow those spots/divots to get cut higher from the root than other areas? That may be the cause of the runner stems going vertical and the blades growing out of them at an elevated starting point. In other words, in most areas those runners are growing...

re: What to do with a bird that fell out the nest? - Tiger-Striped-Bass
Mockingbirds fledge before fully being able to fly. It's just the normal process. The parents will stay close and protect it until it can fly. That's probably what you found. Just leave it alone...

re: Zenith vs Emerald Zoysia - Tiger-Striped-Bass
Meyer zoysia, like emerald, is an older cultivar that was popular in the past. When i bought my emerald, i went to the field to see it first, and they also had meyer at the time. i wound up with a little bit of meyer here and there in my emerald. It's very similar in appearance to zenith. I've only ...

re: Zenith vs Emerald Zoysia - Tiger-Striped-Bass
I put down 28 pallets of Emerald Zoysia in 2005. I also planted zenith zoysia seed on the other side of my driveway that I couldn’t afford to sod too. Emerald cannot be had from seed. There are new varieties that may be improved. But in 2005, Emerald was the Cadillac of zoysias. I still have it, bu...

re: How to shake a man's hand. - Tiger-Striped-Bass
[quote]Why the frick does that video even exist.[/quote] I agree. However, I will say, I hate when some schmuck grips before the back of our hands meet, resulting in them having a hand full of my fingers only. Oddly enough, this is never done by women. I will invariably pull back and say, oh no, I...

re: Trail Cam - Tiger-Striped-Bass
I'll comment on my experience with batteries/solar panels, etc. You'll get to choose how often your camera uploads the pics taken. Set to instant, the onboard modem will have to power up every time a pic is taken. If you're getting a lot of pics, that can really take a toll on battery life. Choosing...
