Good morning and thanks for joining. Like him or over the garden short lunch first question as always operational or are cold and an extra. You know something going you will help -- there are diagnosing. Problem but in the buying -- trying to determine what to do forward looking at what to play at that time of the year -- -- arguably -- escape. Are your hours are vegetable garden. You got some Google Talk like an appeal with -- low change regarding question this morning to 60. 187 -- is -- -- that -- need call 601 point 78 outlook the local New Orleans calling area. Cold and -- free Asia extra. 889. 0870. -- along through the long break so on the owns first -- so this is Lester. Call Obama cellphone in the years -- Portland. TrueCrypt -- Lester. Fortunate that the issues. Are all. And it's like some are saying we need. Blowing through there. Looks almost like course -- it. Aren't we see try to. Keep. All the marshals heart disease or book in the parts are well noted it was all last year and a bigger issue. Okay. What you can do associate actually getting bigger. That is is that thing where -- last year and just while also being. -- this year it looks like maybe baker I think it probably years what you what you would trade with -- Problem is you know -- -- -- the spot was two feet across and now today it's four feet across. I am I can I can sheet from week to week it's developing and getting bigger. Areas for the grass was green are -- now concede in the living. -- -- last week. Dongle for -- guys that can. Problem Lester and we have an. The problem like that you have to get a diagnosis struggle going on and into the appropriate action and so the first step to this would be. Ultimately contact your local militia and extinction all this talk to county agent. Say here that samples may -- to bring this to bring a sample and but in this lectures out like old image it's like -- -- damage that's already happened -- you have. -- be any area in your art. And everybody out there listening once you have -- theory in your yard if there. If not coming back you can -- he can put fertilizer on it. This is not coming back. That kind of game that you have to be repeat here so let's start the next couple weeks Forster and little post round at. Little stake in the ground -- an optimal -- marker. -- some kind of indications show you put the edges. Our and then given week -- -- and -- -- -- are significantly. Beyond that or use market that it -- similar significantly. You need to talk about what's going on could be brown -- this time of the year it too early for a lot of problems like change. But Barbara but it just -- active. This time of the year and to them. People -- need to -- properly diagnosed and in this country -- -- need to -- if it is -- -- and interpret like it to the -- I angle from -- but even. Lester you're gonna go back to repair the damage that has been done now that the wheat growing among dead grass as a -- -- as a -- herbicide that is no -- to say in those areas -- Are quite closely held kills all around. And go to that data area and street goes we would go grocery bill goes we Angel if you actually kill the law. It is -- -- for you to worry about is septic grants. I'm not aware Lugar urged its -- through. There to continue to decide Lester if it's worth looking at the ugly area in your on. To wait and see if a futile streak to grant here in their might. I'll -- in the year I can't see it sure you'd have to make that judgment call. But -- From the area you may be looking at big beard theory -- until July or August. So you. Remember. Last year so they -- year. It's bigger just in well in the flash. Doesn't do that come. Lester the pistol that grass from last year it never made any effort to repair the damage. And and removed that -- it's important site and figures still. Democrats last year we were. -- -- at some point. And three player of the damage that's preferable to just like you -- to -- everybody out there lifting because I talk to so many people say I have this -- this area in my art in there and I fertilized it and is more this year than last year. And Michael ended June repair the image could address it and become -- And -- I mean you need to so lecture -- on removing the aggression that area and laying and so. And again determine whether it is an -- -- problem -- the edges as I told you wait two weeks if it doesn't expand significantly in two weeks whatever it should come and call and you can feel good about going in place and programs. I and that there should something else start cropping up that. The time to deal with the problem is as that is occurring. A big large area that's already there doesn't tell a lot we need to be the year. -- that -- that the crash cart stock and that. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Worse. So that's why should diagnosed and certainly. A little story can going to bring in Indian tribe negated diagnosed again if it's not your problem it's just dead grass. We can't tell much about -- conciliatory as William something culture crash so it has to be an active problem. Something has to be actively. Happening to that -- -- achieve the symptoms and be able come up with an idea so again if you do the test I told you that you find it an act. The problem absolutely as a war between Lester get a diagnosis then because it's an -- problem. But the party coming on and it's not. It feels horrible they're killing your branch in Austria. So again go in the game and do the catastrophe of the post -- large and it's -- -- enlarging. By all means you need to get that diagnosed before replacing current that's a lot of enlarging arguing -- -- the game which and move on air. -- are you a potential call literally material but is -- tree breakage regarding question. Call on him with you -- you're a question to answer for it -- so. 1874. About the -- for the garden short right after the match -- morning we're talking gardening here on the garden so this morning. -- critical regarding question let's say had the phone and the first -- on call and call accordingly on. Mind and travel my -- my yard is he's. It is -- -- that maybe they are going to hand it rains in. I don't that would do about. Well it is and and it is an irritant. This year those. A crawfish chimneys he's the column upon amount then all they can damage it can come over war on to collect them in the -- come.

But for many reasons we have delayed that. And I'm wondering if you would still do. Plantings or if at this point you would wait for the fall. When you know -- Summer is not be ideal -- And so but mostly we don't say you are forbidden department landscape since summertime. Which is it's not the ideal time you're putting plants into the ground. Expect them to reestablish from -- to the missile which is -- process. -- planned to go through to re establishes a route system and -- radically different environment that what has been used to this and -- like in the container. When he planted into the ground. So that -- sin is compelled by an added on to. By the stress of the environment or -- ninety degrees during the day in staying in the -- and I thought we are whether -- too much. You know that I have a lot of stress you know all the stress on the young plants are that you put him and that's not an advantage after the advantage. But it doesn't mean it can't survive -- -- installed during the summer and through the summer professionally. Our professionals can't always choose the ideal climate that you're installing skate park I try to throw in skip to be installed. They -- ready for to be installed console ships are installed through this summer. But changes that they acknowledged that it toggle on the plant Churchill but more difficult for them to established that the disadvantages to watcher watering hole more carefully. And that means war effort on your part but it's certainly doable on the area that's not something that -- fraud that. Want to get past a certain point I would for BJ. Some troops and totally escape them. Felt what that we've waited this long we could play a little longer backed debt preferred not to itself. Sells single port and until apparently prefer the sooner the better OK at this point is still catching a bit of cooled as.

Thank you so much you know payroll appreciate the call. But right now -- right -- Maryland. Maryland has subnet telling a Metairie Maryland good morning. The morning.

Argued to get I'd say I'm older relative or five years ago -- the thing to do with my time. In the put a lot of Burton and and that blood sweat and tears into this and get nothing directory term and again he chartered an extra approach foreign -- only disappoint them. Despite doing all the right things for the plant and yet to decide whether okay well that is what it is do what you want to do or where you what you're rid of them put something else in the that would be more separate track -- back. The ride and -- to decide side bad when you have done you can break at all. It it is that. Good idea to do that. And then they can shoot like that those. You can't and you can get them up and divide them -- on occasion if you like to probably the Malone. Not only. Yeah I mean if you keep fiddling with cement in them dividing and removing them ambiguous about -- popular really helping encourage our blog if you do that too often.
