3 inches is way too high. I would try to sell them on reel cutting, and cutting with a 21" with bagged at 1.75-2" max. I'll take some pics of an empire yard that I cut and you will see what the reel cut looks like...

Yes Please do....I am looking into that as a niche market here ...not sure it has the legs it needs here...but still looking just in case.

First up - Random Photos of the Trailer. Everything has it's place on my trailer. Nothing is on the floor besides the Mower tires!
The trailer looks like it has a flat. Or is it maybe too much weight on it? Nice setup though.

Winter Park Sidewalk Art Festival

Went to the Winter Park Sidewalk Art Festival today and got a couple of interesting photos today that I thought I would share.

Here are the roses that I mentioned and provided a photo of earlier. As mentioned the previous LCO was wacking them with a hedge trimming instead of pruning them . They are not perfect YET but they are well on their way to being very healthy again which if you look at the previous photo is important since they are the focal point surrounding the driveway.

This is a lobster roll from my new favorite brew house. That is a lot of lobster meat and the roll is outstanding.

Cut myself yesterday morning. Like a real man I ensured my work was done until I went to get stitched up. As I type this I am doing so without the use of my right pointy finger.
