[QUOTE=billythekid;5253644]Passing 12 lawns along at the end of the month to pursue fertilizer. Out of mowing within 4 years.

Good plan. I don't have a specific exit strategy, but I am scaling back my mowing. I turn down all new mowing business now unless they are on the same street that I currently service. My buddy is adding another mowing crew, he needs his head examined.

I dropped a $90 weekly last week that grew way too fast. The lady asked me to cut lower, I parted ways immediately.

Am I imagining things? Are the maple whirligigs especially prolific this season?

I don't recall seeing so many, so thick on the turf, driveways, beds, as this season.

they are real! and EVERYWHERE!

They got me frustrated but nothing like how the 30's got me frustrated. Unit #1 had it's first breakdown this year, but unit #2 went into the shop the day after - have been told it's 3 separate issue's, which makes 11 total malfunctions in less than a year of ownership.

There should be a lemon law on mowers...

yes. They seem especially "numbersome".

I usually try to clean stuff like that, but with the extra time spent on tall grass, I have to pick my battles.

Lots of wild onions too in places I've never seen them before.
