I would potentially be interested in subbing out some compost Topdress work for a few of my customers, if anyone does top dressing in the Rochester area.

Is anyone sending out any direct mail marketing for fall & winter services? I'm debating whether or not to do it. With the snow storm that SD/ND is getting this weekend, I'm somewhat hesitant and am thinking winter will be early...

No, already have more snow work then I want. It seems like no matter what I still get more calls wanting service.

Not mailing any fall clean up flyers. This time of year, I enjoy the cool fall air, doing aerations and winterizations, and finishing up mowing for the season. By 2nd week of Nov or so, I will probably have closed shop unless warmer weather persists longer that usual into fall.

Don't do much snow at all, no interest, only do what I do to provide start up cash for next spring.

Got the part I needed from RCWP or w.e the name was. Item is on backorder unfortunately though but it has now shipped so I'm hoping to have it by the end of the week.

Seems like the leaves have been holding on longer this year. We are usually done with clean ups by the end of the second week this month. Does anyone go any longer if the weather holds, or do you shut it down and get ready for the white stuff to drop?
