With these warmer temps and no cool down in sight the grass has been growing. Spring fever is here. Just go to the garden center at home depot and see all the crazy people. I have been busy with mulching and trimming back dead stuff. With the way the temps are going I might have to start weekly mowing sooner than usual. Anyone picking up alot of work?

We've had such a mild winter that the dafodills are blooming, and I saw one forsythia that had blooms on it this past week. If it continues, I will probably start mowing about a month earlier than normal. Getting calls from customers over a month earlier than normal to start working on pruning, cleanups, etc. :)

I believe the year was 1994 and we has a super warm winter until the last week of Feb & first week of March. Every thing was flushed out or in bloom when we had 3 freezes in a two week period. It took two year for most plants to fully recovery from those freezes.

My agreements say weekly cutting starts may 1. They also say the customer gets 38 cuts for the year. Anything needed above that will be happily provided, but will be an extra charge.

Glad somebody knew of this. I didn't know am exact year but figured that something like this happened before. I just hope we get some cooler temps for the sake of feeling a winter...

As Ric sort of said:

It ain't over until the corpulently challenged women sings. :p
