I hear ya
We got a great start on our fall round but on hold right now

Thank goodness it's giving us time to seed, get caught up on pm and prepare for harvest.
We have had very little down time thus far.

Hope it starts rain n in about 10 days cuz we need to finish r fall app and finish aerations.

Overall this has been r best and by far most challenging year. Weather keeps get n crazier every yr

54% is amazing for a small company and you weren't that small to start the year. Congrats! Do u think it was mostly the TV Advertising?

It has been an amazing year! I wouldn't recommend growing that fast. Luckily we have great people and were able to add a few great people along the way. There are some serious growing pains but totally worth it. We are very happy with the way we are growing and much of it is because of our awesome customer base.

About 50% of our growth is from referrals and the other half is from advertising. TV has worked very well along with several other things.
