    I spent the day over on PEI visiting some friends, its the smallest Canadian province on the far east coast. (has the worlds longest bridge connecting it to the mainland... 13km long) Anyway, I was impressed wtih the lawns over there! Seemed like every single property was freshly mowed that day and the weird part was I hardly saw a single dandylion the entire time I was there (???) Are there any LCO's from the Island that can clear that up? Is it b/c of the heavy use of herbicides on the potato crops? (30% of our potato crops come from the little island) Anyway I was just curious.. Oh and its John Deere land over there.. .everything is green and yellow :D

    Its the ten months of winter that keeps the weeds away.
