UPDATE/MISSION DEBRIEF: Friendly forces successfully applied anti-crabgrass treatment (preemergent) along the contested northern border and behind enemy lines to a distance of 3-4 feet.
Operation Digitaria commenced at 1745 EDT on May 10 with a diversionary mowing operation. Followed immediately by a lightening-fast (Well, for me anyway.), stealth application of said preemergent.
Mission success was threatened by temporary loss of rotary spreader capability caused by ingestion of foreign material related to spousal unit failure to properly clean hand trowel used for recent cemetary plantings. (SURPRISE! … I tend to store small garden tools in the spreader housing when not in use.) Corrective maintenance returned spreader to full mission capability. Operation completed without losses to personnel or equipment. Initial observations indicate bordering forces did not observe and remain unaware of interdiction operation.
