  • I heard someone lamenting their crabgrass the other day; they were convinced that this was the worst year ever.  Maybe so, but usually by this time crabgrass rears its ugly head and begins to creep through our fescue lawns, sneak into our cultivated beds and, when we’re not looking, reseed its self to ensure the continuation of the species.
