I'm on a mission to kill all the nutsedge that invaded one of the flowerbeds. I've been spot spraying the new arrivals every morning. I hate this weed, but fortunately there are herbicides available that kill the plant and the nut under the soil.

Installed the roll-up door on the router shop last week.

Harvested the last of the green peppers so Mrs. Ranch can prep them for freezing. Also picked a the last of the tomatoes & cucumbers. As soon as 'hotter-than-hell' week is over, I'll start prepping the garden for the fall planting.

Received the new rear fenders for the Gator. I put 2 applications of Rejex polymer coating on them & will install them tomorrow after it cures.

Ordered watch batteries for 5 watches after taking them apart.

Family bike ride to a park where my wife did a yoga class and kids played on a playground and I drank coffee. Round trip 1hr 40 min and 5 ish miles.
5 hours at work - writing the hmi for a material handling machine, the guys next to me are doing the PLC work. Close to 60 hours in the last week, but I was always home before 5:30.
Mowed the lawn

Need to mix hydroponic nutrient and refill the lettuce troughs.

Best / fastest / easiest way to clear a hair clog from a bathtub drain is a shop-vac.

Took longer to carry the shop vac from the garage to the bathroom than to clear the drain clog.
