    Any of you guys not mowing anything yet. With the cold temps and rain we have only done spring clean ups, but we did cut it low when we did them. Most of our stuff is still brown and just starting to come out of dormant stage. How about the rest of you guys.

    100 miles west of you. we have mowed about 3/4 of our accounts once. Some LCO's here have mowed some props twice but I haven't, as I think thats pushing it. Growth has slowed considerably in the last few days.

    I know, we had a good spring last year but it will warm up next week. We had a great winter here though, more than makes up for this spring.
