    Now we got 20-30 mph winds today and tomorrow so much for spring clean ups I guess I'll jump on some mulch jobs tomorrow. Only thing is doing mulch when its 40 degrees or lower is less than pleasurable.

    yeah that's why i'm holding out until all the snow is melted, so maybe thursday or friday...i have some clean ups i can do now, but i don't want to start then stop, i want to start clean ups and keep going unless it rains heavy and then start mowing so i'll wait a few days. even though this is my only source of income, its not costing me anything to start later.

    Wish I could say that it cost us 4-5k a month just to exist. We used up the mulch jobs we had already the rest need clean ups before we can touch them so hopefully the wind slows down soon. As for missing most of march it should make April a very high grossing month for us but that does mean it will be about the end of May before were even and begin to show some income in June.

    yes grass is starting to turn green on the nicer lawns that have fert, i'm not too happy about that, i still have atleast a dozen clean ups to do still, and they will be a pain once the grass starts growing. hopefully i can bang out a half of them this weekend...
