Looks good. How long did it take to spread the 45 bales? Our typical customers are 25 to 30.

The next time someone complains about your pricing, ask them how much their barber would charge to come over and cut their hair.

Looks good! I've been using pine needles on my own property for years. Customers here don't care for it though.
