    I never quit. I have 45 properties I maintain year round. I did send out letters this week to my seasonal customers that I would be starting regular services in mid March.

    Was planning on March 1. But, that mfing weather man is calling for rain. So it will be March 3 for me as the second is Sunday and I have to work at the FD.

    Letters have all been sent out and customers have been informed of the start date.

    I am SOOOOOO ready I can't stand it. I have been over the equipment several times this week and everything is in order. I even worked in my yard yesterday to get it ready.

    Here in Ohio, everyone starts about February 28th or so. The problem is here in the midwest, we have a very small window to apply pre M. We all wait as long as we can for good temperatures but as Rob said, if we have a surprise snow fall, we could be screwed

    We start in January with a dormant oil on trees and shrubs and work all year only taking a break in December :)
