    The big machine finished knocking down the 4 homes across from our shop. They wasted no time the lot is full

    On off valve is in front of backcheck just out of view, and that stub out is for future valve. By mistake wehooked to a dry supply line then all hell broke loose in moving things. The BC had tb moved.

    This KRBS is really big this year and has a purple color to the tips. I need to find some new kind of blades. I get a nice clean cut if I go backwards. :hammerhead:

    Could not buy rain two years ago, some thought it would never rain. Now we are getting a rain about every other week. :clapping:

    One of our biggest customers wanted to expand one area and it hydroseeded. We tried and tried to get em to put temporary watering in but they rolled the dice. Only got about 25% covered and mainly in sun area. So they cut out some trees and hope seed will come up. I threw out some rye today so they won't be disappointed.

    Our flower beds versus the big company.

    When the condo people drive out they would see our flowers just across
    the road. We have worked these beds hard hoping somebody notices.

    This big company is landscaping a very big apartment complex across from
    one of our other condo complex. Obvious they will get to do the maintenance because that is only way they will warrant the plants. So they get larger and larger.

    Never can get tarp positioned on trailer so water will drain off. Got the frame off old
    boat cover and put it up for this trailer. Total cost $150 and it won't be taxed.
