Howard, those are great shots. Good memories for all there.


I mowed at dad's with the 147. Got a flat and used a spare.

We used the SS12 to haul some posts for the garden fencing. Also strapped the tiller on and tilled where the Swiss Chard failed. The weeds where we thought the row should be had gotten out of hand & the chard was a loss.

What to do today? Well I had planned on a break install on the Honda but the parts never showed up Saturday as they was supposed too. Then I thought about finishing the Coil Project I started but again the heat here will be extreme for our area. Today is supposed to be well over 100 degrees once again. If you've ever visited the Blue Ridge Mountains in NC you can't imagine the heat combined with Humidity here. Again the forecast is Severe Thunderstorms spawning out of Patrick County VA. They have already killed 13 people in the Mid Eastern States. Put several million folks without power...

So Today, I think I ain't doing a thing with any of my tractors! It's Sunday, the day of rest so I think I'll just be doing that!

I'm doing nothing either with or to a tractor today. Just too hot to care! Been in the heat all week, so on my day off from chores, I'm taking the rest of the day to relax.

I've been doing some work on my yard. Cleaned out the area between the garage and the shed where nothing grows and junk collects. Put in some river-wash rock. At the end of the day, all the work left us without a table for BBQ stuff, so we used the tractor bucket as a buffet table.

I had every intention of cutting/hauling/stacking some firewood today with GX/Jbjr and Uncle Andreas... I got outside this morning and the entire neighborhood was so quiet... a few illegal (but much appreciated) fireworks randomly in the distance... No screaming varmints in the pool next door or anyone else running stuff... The air had a hint of charcoal and flash powder wafting along...

Who am I to screw up one of the best days this neighborhood has had all summer... I went in and started to watch the Tour d' France on the DVR and enjoy a leisurely "second breakfast" with my cats. :orangecool: :ok: For the rest of the day I tried to prove a theory of Issac Newton, "A body at rest tends to remain at rest." Tomorrow's another day.

Woke up early, hooked my little trailer on the minivan and put the SS12 on. If there is still activity at the Ashtabula Ohio show when I get off work at 5, I'm heading over... If not, she got to go for a ride.

Pulled this pic off the internet. Same as what I use. Not sure if kids would lick the stuff or not though! :smilewink:
The empty tubs sure are handy too. We carry veggies in from the garden with them, use them for watering tubs,....just all sorts of uses. At 200lbs eacjh, you don't wanna have to lift them by hand! I drive my tractor up, level the loader bucket, then slide them into the bucket. At the feeders, just tip the bucket & they slide right into the concrete feeders.

Sandbur season is upon us here, so I am trying something new. Quincept herbicide is supposed to control them, we will see. Full writeup in a couple of weeks.

Due to the dry, hot conditions for the last two weeks, there is a good crop coming up. I hope this treatment will slow them down.

Weapon of choice:
Megan's 7th B-Day Party 2012 068.jpg

My JD 212 always gets the nod for spraying duties, it is the only manual tranny machine here. 3rd gear, variator in the 4th slot gives me an application rate of 20 gallons per acre. The Quincept is recommended at 10-16 ounces per acre, using a minimum of 20 gallons of water. Due to heat and lack of rain, I mixed it at the minimum rate, 10 ounces to 20 gallons of water.

Thanks for the pictures.
Let us know how that weed killer works
Is that sprayer powered by anything or is it manual pump? Hard to tell by the pic
