    Well here's a question that gets asked every 2 weeks on here... :p

    I do this full time! Can't you tell? It's the middle of the afternoon on a monday and I'm home and sitting in front of the computer! Ahhhh, winter!

    I have about 70 or so accounts. I added the square footage up once and got a ballpark number of like a million+ sq. feet of grass a week. (I forget now what it was exactly)

    I do about 5 accounts now on a part time basis. I am a freshman in high school, and I help my dad farm about 350 acres of wheat and row crops. This summer I will get my un-restricted drivers license, so I would like to be doing 10 to maybe 15 by mid- summer, but I think that will be all I can handle to do that many.
