Well, I'm going to try my hand at gardening. Have big plans and ideas as to what and how I want to plant, so we will see how things go. If it goes anything like last weekend did, then I'm headed in the wrong direction. I tried plowing the plot with jdelfjunior's (my son and fellow member) 1967 112H and his 10" Brinly plow, but when I went to lift the plow, I found that the hydraulic lift cylinder was rusted fast, so I had to rebuild it. After that was fixed, I ended up blowing a head gasket after the first 5 feet of running the plow in the ground. Needless to say, I gave up.
So, I ended up borrowing Dad's John Deere 2305 and rototiller. It was a little rough at first, but after a couple of passes, the ground turned out really nice. I don't know how well you can see the soil, but it looks like it was sifted with a screen. Dad's tiller does a really nice job, and I was quite impressed.
My wife Kathy, made me put the picture of me in this thread. She thinks it's funny, as to how hard I'm concentrating to make my rows straight and deep. Must be a woman thing. At least I have my GTtalk hat on. That's some dedication in itself!
