Favorite Things Friday – Activities in Lincoln, CA

carshow
Rods and Relics in Downtown Lincoln, CA

Okay, it isn’t Friday yet, but I wish it was! One of my favorite things is that I love the fact that there is always something going on in our community. It is fun to go to events and see friends and enjoy one another’s company. Whether it is a Christmas Parade, 4th of July Fireworks, Farmer’s Market or other special event, it seems like there is always a family friendly event to look forward to. Last Saturday, there was the Rods and Relics Car Show in downtown Lincoln. It was extremely well attended and more entries that I have ever seen in a car show downtown. There were various food vendors and some good music to listen to while checking out some of the amazing restorations. It was a good time for a few hours on a Saturday.

This week we have the Lincoln AirFest coming up (June 11th). It promises to be a great event. It seems like every year the air show at our little Lincoln Airport gets better and better. This year they are having a Youth Aerospace Expo, Helicopter and balloon rides and of course, some cool Warbirds. There is a pancake breakfast and then opening ceremonies at 10:00 AM. Under 18 is free and general tickets are $10. Check out their website here: Lincoln Airfest

I hope to see you there!

HOMELESS IN LINCOLN

Homeless in Lincoln (2)

 

Let’s face it, the selling process can be stressful. From the initial home preparation to the showings, offers, disclosures, inspections and the packing/moving, it can seem like a huge task. I always do my best to make the process as easy and stress-free as possible for all my clients. Every once in a while I have a client that takes all in stride and has a great attitude and sense of humor about the whole process. One of my recent sales was just that way.  My client was level-headed and surprised me with a great photo right at the end. His intention wasn’t to make light of people that are facing hard times, but he did try to make me feel bad about making him homeless (he is moving out of State and in between homes). Congratulations RG!  We sold his house within a relatively short time and he and I were both satisfied with the price.

Lincoln, CA Homes: How to Make & Keep Your Lawn Green

Make your Lawn Green!

Lawn Fertilizers – What do the Numbers Mean?

Have you ever looked at your lawn and thought that it needed to be greened up? You get in the car and head down to Lowes or Home Depot (we have both in Lincoln) and then start looking at the numerous bags of fertilizer…Which one do you choose? If you don’t know, hopefully this summary will help you next time you feel like making your lawn as green or greener than your neighbors.

All fertilizers use a three number rating system, like 15-15-15 or 21-7-14.  The first number represents Nitrogen, the second Phosphorous, the third is Potassium.  These numbers are percentages of the total ingredients in the bag.  In case you forget the order, the words are alphabetical.

The chemical notations of these elements are N-P-K, an official designation for fertilizer numbers.  Triple 15 (15-15-15) has equal amounts of each of these nutrients, or 15% of each.  In a rating of 21-7-14, nitrogen has the highest concentration.  It is 3 times the amount of phosphorus.  Phosphorus is only half of the potassium amount.  Technically, this would be called a 3-1-2 ratio.

Look at any set of fertilizer ratios on a label.  Notice how the numbers relate to each other by size:

21-7-14 is Big – Small – Medium

21-3-3 is Big – Small – Small

6-20-20 is Small – Big – Big

21-0-0 is Big – Zero – Zero

The NPK rating you want for grass is typically Big – Small – Small.  If you follow this, you see that grass needs a lot of Nitrogen and a little bit of the other stuff.  That’s the essential part.  Here’s what the nutrients do:

Nitrogen :

Essential for growth of foliage; produces lush, tender green blades.  Deficiency results in a yellow-green color and little or no growth.

Phosphorous:

Stimulates root growth and hastens the maturity of plants, promotes development of seeds.  Deficiency can result in slow or stunted growth and discoloration on blades.

Potassium:

Gives vigor to tolerate changing weather conditions and helps resist disease.  Strengthens cell wall structure for strong stems.  Deficiency can cause weak stems & slow growth.

Now, look at the current status of your lawn.   An established lawn needs primarily nitrogen since it is not producing fruit or flowers = Big – Small – Small.  A new lawn needs more phosphorous to produce roots = Small – Big – Big.  A stressed lawn (preparing for extreme heat or winter) needs more potassium = Big – Small – Medium or Big – Small – Big.

To get that lush, green lawn you’ve always wanted, apply fertilizer in early spring, when the weather begins to warm up for good and plants begin to flourish.  Fertilize again in the middle of summer.   Fertilize a third time in the early fall after heat waves and droughts have subsided for the year.  Remember to always read and follow the product recommendations for fertilizers, or any other garden chemicals.  It won’t be long before your lawn is the envy of all your neighbors!  Let’s all make Lincoln a more beautiful town to live in!
