I need to get my hive installed, and a colony established.
And I already do a no mow policy for a lot of the time.
Spring I let it get tall to get strong.
Summer I let it get tall to keep the moisture in the lawn.

I'm waiting one more week, alot of my places aren't quite ready yet.
I'm doing the same, did mulch yesterday and Monday, got a nice front yard planting we're doing today & tomorrow. I underestimated how much time I'd spend in the truck getting all the material today

We do a lot of work in the Princeton area. The two schools we mow have asked us not to mow the back sections of the properties (about an acre each), and one townhouse association we maintain ask not to mow one of the common area, (about 1.5 acres). The brush hog is all set up to knock down these fields by June 1!!!! Crazy! Talking about Princeton ... I better go out and charge up the batteries for the new back pack blowers we recently purchased . May 15 is the date that gas back pack blowers are no longer allowed until the fall !!! Just crushing the working class!

Fuel prices, station by me went back up to 5.49 a gallon, but. Just went past the truck station on RT46, top of KingTown Mt. Fuel is $6.39 a gallon.
The station at the old Netcong circle was $6.29 a gallon.

I think that's because of the guys who are the kleptocracies

Supposedly there's a diesel shortage.

Saw the forecast for this week and got our commercials cut on Saturday to at least make the first week of mowing alittle easier.

We, and I do mean we as he's been doing most of the work under my tutellage, just finished putting a new clutch in it. Lots of work to still do, but it's running and driving again.

Actual image of me firing the parts cannon at this thing...

Awesome that the car sparked the interest, and that he is willing to wrench. Good job Dad.

I made him a deal:
He puts in a TON of sweat equity, and when he turns 17 in 2.5 years he gets to drive it as his car. All cover the cost of parts, insurance, fees, etc. He has to cover gas. The only caveat is, when he wants something else, he has to give it back... I bought it for ME! :D

I know it’s probably just me but it seems a lot slower this year than last I was lucky last year getting jobs my buddy was too busy to take on, he’s still really busy but seems like he can keep up so I’m not getting anything that way either

Don't sweat it, if things start to slow down its a good thing if you're small (and young). Same thing happened to me when I started out in 2006.

Is it just me? Or are people really starting to tighten up their purses? I must have lost 25 accounts this year. I usually use some every spring but this year is as bad as when Covid hit. And it’s almost everyone either doing it themselves, their kids, or found some guy at a stupid low price.

True. We finished cuts today so there's no pressure to get anything else done with the rain coming in, I know that everyone else on here has a lot more pressure on them to get stuff done on weeks like this. We might do a mulch job if it's light enough rain early tomorrow otherwise 3 day weekend
