Took the blade off the JD 455 and put the sweeper on it . I swept my lawn and two of the neighbors. I swept all the debris in the big bucket on my mini loader and didn't even half to pick up a rake. Now that's my idea of a easy spring cleanup, ha,ha. I also got the forks out and brought the small lawn trailer home from down the street. It hit 78 degrees today .

Fired up the MTD mower and topped the weeds. They were getting out of hand. First seat time in a couple weeks.

Yesterday I took the 318 over to my best friends house and graded his driveway with the box blade. Followed it up by pulling a piece of heavy gauge hog wire nailed to a couple of 4x4's. He was happy.

Took the big blade off the GT5000 and woods parked it for the spring. Then I put the brinly planter on and tried a pass with nothing in it. The wheel kept sliding.

Ran the planter up to the shed to investigate. It seems that at some point in the past, water had gotten in under the plate and the rust was causing the plate to stick. A little sanding, some cleanup, a little strategically places grease and oil and back to the garden. Runs smooth now. Can't wait to plant the sweet corn with it and see how it works.

I tilled the garden yesterday with the JD 317 and found that it tilled it up well even though it was a lttle well. Today I mowed the lawn, with the WH Auto14 for the 4th time this year, Thank GOD for all the rain we've had. but the lawn is growing an 1" and hour, I think.. :laughingteeth:

Saturday I mowed part of the onions, I mean yard and pulled the de-thatcher while mowing, Then a thunder storm blew in before I could finish.

After the rain was done, I got out the LGT 165 and pulled the roller in the areas most ravaged by the moles.

Put a charge in the battery and brought the Sears/loader out of its winter sleep. Had stored it last November with with a full tank of treated gas and it fired right up! Put it right to work cutting some of the crown down and filling ruts in on the driveway. Felt good to get some non snow removal seat time!! The rest of the yard is still WAY too soft to do much else yet.

From when Irene came through, the ponds and stream by me house took a lot of damage. Behind the tractor where its missing a part was washed out from the water going over the dam wall. The part that the tractor is on was under water and you can see up the side where is was eroded away. A tree fell in the water from who knows where and floated into the dam. With it washed out you cant get a tractor to the other side so, I had to wait for the water level to drop enough that I could walk across it with the billets from the tree. The tree was not very big, about 25 feet and a foot or so in diameter at the bottom, only filled 2/3 of my little trailer.

Ryan, the wash out looks to be a good opportunity for seat time! Just got to fill it with the right material so it doesn't wash out again soon.

Now all I need is a bit more organic matter to build it up a bit more and I should have something decent to plant in.
