Finally got my garden plowed. I wanted to do it in the fall, but this year it's been too wet, and me too busy.
I'm not sure who had more fun, me or the old M. It was still a tad on the wet side and I had to scrape the mold boards off a couple of times. But it needed to be done and more rain was in the forecast. Nothing like the sound of the old M when you drop the plow. The garden has a soggy spot in the middle where the old tractor would growl as it went through. Such a good sound but glad I don't have to plow all day.


Hoping to disk and plant potatoes before the end of the month. Then on to corn and beans, etc.

I'm in similar straights as Bass. It's been a real mess here with all the rain. We have nurses and other care givers who come to the house to take care of my sick mother-in-law resulting in a lot of daily traffic on my long driveway. They've really done a number on it and it's been too wet to get a load of gravel in. Problem is that those nurses see a puddle and drive around it. I wish they'd drive through the puddles and not keep making my driveway wider every time it rains. It poured again today and thundering now.

Fortunately my soil doesn't have a lot of clay and will break up pretty well with the disc harrow (he says hopefully).

the old drive way is 4wheel drive only with a chain on each tractor to pull the truck out.

Today's Featured Article - Show Coverage: Fair Weather Tractor - by Dave M.. No, Fair Weather isn't some rare brand. It's the kind you can't leave out in the rain. Here's how it happened. I had been casually looking for a tractor for weeks. I saw a few 9N's, but they had even fewer amenities than the 8N my Grandpa bought new in '52 with a Dearborn loader. That was 10 years before I was born, so I grew up thinking that 8N was the world's best tractor. Grandpa had greenhouses, with over half an acre under glass, and that 8N did almost everything. It was the only ... [Read Article]
