Im confused here...5 acres...ok check...bag only 2 check, ten minutes to bag one acre with a wb bagger....are you blowing dust around? That would take forever to bag an acre with a wb bagger! I give ya props for starting young, but something just seems off. And btw when it comes to bagging the price normally gets doubled.

Yet again this is his second house and he is never around.

There is something missing clue me in please

Man...word of advice...don't stay up and post this late! Its 11:45 here and its 12:45 in your time zone! You need the sleep so you can grow up right , get good grades, and all the other stuff that our parents have told us.
