Still A Slow Start To The Year

We have been talking about how the weather has created a slow start for us this year, and how this cold weather has caused the plants to be farther behind.  Here is a picture that was taken last year to illustrate this.  The picture to the left was taken on May 5, 2010.  The amount of leaves on the trees is obvious.

This picture was taken on Tuesday, May 3, 2011.  The cloud cover and cold temperatures are to blame for the dramatic differences.  Yesterday we collected soil temperature measurements on the greens that were under 44 degrees.  It will only take a couple warm and sunny days to get the soil temperatures up to desirable levels.  Though the grass has greened very well, we are not experiencing much growth yet.
