When are you guys gonna start your cleanups? I think I might start the week after easter if the weather stays nice. Just checking to make sure im not jumping the gun!

i saw Green Touch a local around here doing spring clean up yesterday. mowing and bagging away. i might get started on doing the same this weekend if it gets as warm/sunny as they say, and if i feel better.

Got a couple to do this week. Chilly today, but doable. 50's rest of the week, that'll be nice. Won't start fert/pre until next week at the VERY earliest, probably 2-3 weeks out yet while those soil temps rise.

Usually I say April 15th I get out but the last couple years the ground is still pretty soft for the ZTR. Maybe the following week. Also I'm north of the cities.

Does anybody know where there is a compost site in Minneapolis / Richfield?
Any help would be great.
