    I can't run summer gas in the snowblowers!!!! (hopefully there won't be any need for them)

    A little salt will do just fine.

    Dragonfly: it happened last year to me with fertillizer that I applied that day but, it did no damage to anything. Not sure about grass seed tho.

    How's everyone's year going so far???

    I've been so busy that I haven't even had time to come on the site since the 28th!!

    Picked a new Stihl KM55R on Saturday:cool2: so I'm happy about that.

    Gonna do some mowing tomorrow if the rain doesn't get in my way. (Even though I mow in the rain but, only if I want to hehe:laugh:)

    Going pretty good, can't tell if it's slow this year or just really spread out - I usually get my gardening/landscaping calls in Mid-may to mid-june (cottagers). Didn't pick up too many new mowing customers but didn't work at it hard enough either.

    Getting tired of raking...

    Oh, I built a pond at my house on Sat/Sun (okay, half done maybe - it's flowing but i need to fix up the sides and waterfall a bit before laying stone). Was super fun and I'm very excited about it, but not taking even a half day off has me feeling pretty weary already on a Tuesday - got home at 3:00 today and fell right alseep until 6:00. Good thing we finished up early I guess.

    schedule is always full no nothing to complain about yet, had to buy a new to me stander just to keep up, picking that up tomorrow so I am pretty excited. Hopefully a few more calls for maintenance but I couldn't be more pleased so far...

    what did you buy as I have a 2011 grandstand for sale. 52 inch 23 hp kawi. 450 hrs. Ive got it on kijiji but not much action. Good mower but Id like another walker to match what I have.

    Anyone have some good news to share on Fiesta. I did some lawns last year and am pretty pleased with results. This yr I have booked lots of people and condos for weed control. Everywhere I go people are asking for weedcontrol. :canadaflag:

    Hope all are off to a good season. My wife did the invoicing today and the stack is pretty thick going in the mail. Of course the stack of bills is kinda thick also.:cry:

    I think I did see that one on kijiji. But 52 was too big, I got a 36". Its my primary mower and needed it to fit in all my yards, most of which are less the 1/2 acre anyway.

    Do you have a bagger that will maybe fit my 36" Sentar you would be willing to sell? Or anyone else for that matter.
