Agreed. My neighbor put some rye in small areas of his lawn that weeds had died back. I went over today and picked some up. It actually has a smell even down here that our SA does not have.

I am told that area of Florida is very competitive with many lowballers. Both my Children live in South Beach and I wanted to move to that area to be closer. I talked with several people about your area and even placed an ad in the Trade papers. However I changed my mind because there are just too many people in that area for a small town boy.

Of course customers like this are willing to pay the going rate.
