Today, I drop spread the corn gluten meal. I used a drop spreader and probably put down about 20 lbs of corn gluten meal. I then lightly wet down the grass. The weather is about 60 degrees F in Chicago today. I am not sure if it is too early but I did not want to wait too long. Some of the flowers are already sprouting.
The area I spread the corn gluten meal was the parkway which measures about 5 feet x 200 or so. This is the first time I have ever used a drop spreader.
I hope this works as I do not want to have to pull all those dandelions again. I have read it may take a few years before this optimally works. We'll see.
My next step is to either get a new reel mower or a cordless mower. I have a reel mower, but it is a few years old and I left it out in the elements so it is not doing so well. When I get my new mower, I will let everyone know how that works out as well.
Enjoy the weather. Be 100% responsible.
