Yesterday was good. Ripped up what was left of the garden with the 420 and the s-tine cultivator. Mowed the back with the LA105, then hooked up to water wagon and gave the trees a drink. Got back on the 420 and dragged some dead logs out of the abandoned field behind my place.

Today I have to fix eavestroughing though, and I haven't figured out how to do that with a tractor.

Put the plow on the Sears SS12 and plowed as deep as I could thru the potato rows. Probably found another 25 lbs. Then I put the tiller on and struggled to make the darned thing run right. Finally figured the gas line had moved and was linking off behind the carb. Cut off the bad spot and away we went... Until the belt sailed past the tractor. Still a productive day and I got some seat time.

Tomorrow's another day. I just hope they have the right belt a the parts store I pass on the way to work.

Run the thatcher & plug aerator over the yard with the 314 & then fertilized with the 420 this morning. Then, this afternoon I cleaned everything up, including the 790 w/Woods finish mower. Then chipped some brush with the Troy-Bilt chipper.

Got a little seat time yesterday on the Ford with the box blade. The city showed up to re fill the holes out back from the water line repairs. I got to use the Ford to level the one behind my fence. No pics were taken of me doing it. I'll shoot a couple of the finished job and post them in that thread. The other hole still had water in it. They pumped the water out and filled, but didn't smooth it. I told them I would wait for 4-5 days and see if I could work it over some. The Ford is a whole lot lighter than their JD 310 backhoe and a bunch nimbler. Maybe we can get some pics then.
They thought the Ford did a fine job on what I did. It's still a bit spongy back there, though.

Took the 5518 out to the farm and dug the potatos with the middle buster then plowed the potato ground and broke new ground for next year. I had been trying to locate a 3 point plow for some time and could not find one close enough at a decent price so I ordered a new John Deere plow. It came with a cat 1 hitch that I modified to fit my cat 0 hitch. Works good.

Just mowed the yard with the redone deck under the Kubota G4200. Mowed very nice! Great to have her back to mowing!

My wife and all 5 kids helped me cut trails through our woods. My wife and daughter are convinced that their horses need groomed trails no rougher than a putting green. We didn't make much new trail, mostly we cleared some fallen logs, cut Multiflora Rose and sapplings, and picked out safe routes across the creek. Got the tractor stuck in mud while the wife was in the cart, right behind the spinning tire! She's a good sport.
Here's a pic from Saturday. I started out by myself, then the two older kids found me. Then my wife brought down the three younger kids down to 'help.'

Trim mowed with the Duece, finish mowed with the Kubota and used the CC682 to drag the yard sweeper... I was about a week over due for mowing so there was a lot of clippings added to the garden yesterday. In a couple of weeks I'm probably going to pick up a trailer load of composted horse manure to spread. till in in and sow some winter wheat.
