i hate being solo right now. Gotta wait till the new hire gets out of high school to have a helper.

Gotta love the Green Industry. On my way out to "kill some weeds"

yeah the rain is a pain but we need it

just wish it would do it after dark. ive bumped all my clients up to every 4 to 5 day cuts so i could keep up. if i let them go 7 days i will have to get the bailer out. it also means mo money

What are you guys gonna do for your thursdays/fridays if it is raining all day Th, FRI, SAT, and Sunday. How does that put you for next week? Just maintain them on a weekly, like cut monday, and again friday. THEY COULD USE IT>
