    We had the Memorial Golf Tournament here last week, so that is always good for rain around here. lol Amazing seems like every year they always have rain delays and warnings there. I can always count on being behind that week every year. But it has continued into this week as well. Finishing cutting on Friday then need to try to spread some mulch after that.

    Just a long shot here, no one has a nice equipment trailer for sale do they?

    Rain has been good here but only seems to dry out enough to mow and then rains again so that puts me behind on landscaping and chem apps. I am done with college for a few weeks after tomorrow so im hoping to accomplish a lot with a some steady help.

    Well, got done cutting a little bit ago for the week.Worked late the last two nights. Was going to go mulch but the radar showed a storm moving. Now we have downpour and lightning on going in Columbus.

    Most of the lawns I had yesterday, were out of control.

    Too much fertilizer, and had to be double cut.

    I know what you mean about double cutting. Had a few yesterday and did some this morning.

    Rain is coming to an end for a bit, going to head out and try to put some mulch down. We will see what we can get done.

    We've been kinda lucky on growth, it's been raining so much here that the sun hasn't been out much so they're barely growing. That and red thread is beating the crap out of the lawns. Like today, I was doing 3 places without dumping the bags and they weren't heaping when I did dump them. My yard which I haven't done since the day before memorial day only yeileded 2 level sets of bags and it'd a half acre that I bag.

    What would you guys do in this situation, this lady I mow for mowed her freaking grass on her own the past 2 weeks. I was there on Thursday doing mulch and told her I would be coming to mow it the next day,I pull up today and hey look at that it's done. The worst part is her yard was beautiful, but she keeps cutting it at like an inch! It's totally browned out now. She did the same thing with snow removal this winter. I think I'm going to tell her if she doesn't give me at least a days notice I'm going to charge her $10 for the drive out. There was plenty of black smoke dumped infront of her house today while she was out there cutting it so hopefully that gave a small sign of me being pizzed.
