Mowing has slowed down for sure and I am not expecting much in August. I still mow a few every week, but many are every other week now. I have a few accounts I have not mowed in 3 weeks. For these accounts I will stop by to trim and edge the sidewalks at a discounted rate. A little revenue is better than none and it makes these places look alot better. I finally have time to work on my own property. My property has been neglected this year, so it is nice to catch up on some projects around my own house.

^I have one yard that hasn't been cut since the second week of June. It still doesn't need cut.

Also do any of you guys know about how I get my fert license? I have been looking online but can not find a definitive answer on how I go about getting a license. Maybe I am overlooking something but any guidance would help!

You have to look somewhere under the Penn State University. I can't remember exactly, but I looked at getting mine last year. I can put the link up after work tonight.

I wish I hadn't seen you...I hate the CVS. Last time I was there, it was about a month ago...one of the other guys has been grabbing it and I've been ever so thankful.
