    Yep but you had better watch burning . October 1st starts the beginning of fall fire hazard season . If you have assholeidiot like we have here they run around looking for smoke just so they can run their little red fire truck and listen for the sirens .

    Wouldn't be a big area burn. Just spot hit the weeds with the flame. What I read last night, it doesn't take much heat to kill the weeds.

    That is KY burn ban and dates from Kentucky Division of Forestry Local counties may have added some extra bans as well.
    Burn ban starts October 1st and runs to December 15th and then again from Feb 15 to April 30th

     Fire Hazard Season: From Oct. 1 - Dec. 15 and from Feb. 15 - Apr. 30, burning within 150 feet of any woodland area is allowed only between 6 PM & 6 AM.

    Do you reseed your clover very often? I have a hard time keeping it from taking over.

    That damn smartweeed is a pain in the derriere! It's the one weed that really comes on in a dry period and takes over at a time you can't really spray effectively or without hurting your crop. My 2 recs is try Feedmans herbicide suggestion, in the late spring, early summer and if you see it coming back hit it again. It's my Achilles heel!
