Guest on the Talking Greenkeeper show

Joe Gulotti had me as a guest on his The Talking Greenkeeper show this week.

We talked about elephant footprints, the MLSN soil nutrient guidelines, measuring clipping volume, my book A Short Grammar of Greenkeeping, the temperature-based turfgrass growth potential, this year’s challenging weather, whether one needs to core and topdress putting green turf, where a #TurfFights episode might be staged, and much more.

A few miscellaneous things come to mind.

  1. Joe mentioned a blog post I’d written entitled “Some Rise, some fall, some climb.” Here’s a direct link to that post, which was about clipping volume, animated.

  2. I mentioned a quote about difficulty convincing someone of something when their salary depends on them not understanding it. I was referring to Upton Sinclair’s statement that “It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends upon his not understanding it!”

  3. We also discussed some posts about MLSN and math. If you want to have a closer look at this, I’d suggest these:
