    I have always wondered how other determine the last cut of the season for thier customers. I have been in the busy and have always set a date for somewhere on late October to even early November ( I am in central NJ ). I have had a few customers surprised at how late it seems. But it has always seemed to work out. Especially the last few years, seems to be staying warmer later in the year.

    Do you go by 1st frost? Or any other ideas? Just curious.
