    I got in about 3 solid weeks of work, 95% of my 1st apps are down and most of my lawns I have cleaned up, mowed off, and ready for the season! Only to have it turn to winter once again... Now I'm sitting on my butt since saturday. Tomorrow (thursday) looks like a warming trend is starting again and I will be able to get after it again.

    I'm thankful for the early warm up we had here, I usually never am out before mid march doing anything and this year I was able to start about 2 weeks early, at least! Now I'm really happy that we finally got some rain! We actually NEED 5 inches here! but we ended up with 1.5 to 2" and I'm not gonna complain!

    The weather was warm and dry all winter and the last 2-3 weeks of Feb. were great, I don't like to start too early so I waited until the 1st week of march. hopefully we get some good weather the next 3 weeks because I still have over 400 left in round 1.

    *cough cough choke* 400??? ok, i have about 40! of course that 40 makes up for 900,000 sq ft. of turf, but that's still no 400 stops! I wouldn't wan that kind of work load, but the money that rakes in has to be pretty nice!

    I hate to start off behind and spend the whole year trying to get caught up. now it looks like I may be getting a huge contract! over 1000 home community. it may be time to add a z-spray!
