Total summer, legs still somewhat sore but trending towards a more refreshed state. Picked up middle-ish controls at a middle-ish pace. This could have been written just as well for yesterday, minus the control pick-up part.
The grasses are *already* starting to turn towards a yellowish, ripening look, headed towards mid-summer brown and thence senescence. All this is early, too, though it can't hurt that we haven't had hardly anything in rain now for nearly 2 weeks.
