    It depends on your steps of prep. but the bigger question is does it cover "ALL" expences + reasonble profit?

    Just so you know if you don't already, the price of fert will be jumping up about 35% by the end of the month could possibly go as high as 65% by the end of the summer. This is Nation Wide. so buy NOW!

    I'm sorry...I read this wrong, and was off...WAY off. For some reason, I was wanting to see $25 per M. I have NO idea why I read it that way...Other things on my mind, I guess. My dog just passed away.
