Used the 1612 Jim Dandy to till the garden then used the David Bradley 600 and spike tooth harrow to make a seed bed for the winter cover crop and finished with the DB and harrow-packer and JD 318 to try packing even further in a section to see if it makes any difference as far as germination rate .

Put the 50 gallon water tank on the trailer behind it and it pulled fire duty today while I burned stuff.

Spent the end of Saturday and the beginning of Sunday grading the driveway. I've filled too many holes without grading over the years, so it had gotten pretty high in the middle and was becoming a drainage problem. I knocked it down to a reasonable height, evened it out, filled holes in the garage floor and the city-owned entrance to my driveway, and still had about a quarter yard of rock left over.

On Saturday I also built an archaeological sieve, so Sunday afternoon I cleaned out the fire pit, with the bucket on the 420 doing wheelbarrow duty. Got about 5 gallons of old nails and random bits of metal from all the scrap lumber I burned over the summer.

I'll see if I can remember to snap one or two, Kenny. I whacked it together out of old fence boards and about $20 worth of hardware (actually put bushings in instead of just bolts through wood). Everybody should have one. Why should archaeologists have all the fun?

So today I got home from work and the guy down the street was waving at me. Wasn't sure if he wanted to talk to me or if he was having a seizure, but thought I should check it out. Turned out he was having a bit of an emergency. He'd ordered some crushed rock, and they'd dumped it in the wrong yard. His neighbour was a little less than pleased to find 3 yards of 3/4 down lime piled in front of the garage.

So I went and moved the rock from one driveway to the other driveway. Pretty easy...scoop, drive, dump. Repeat. Funny thing though, when I finished I had two guys handing me beer. If this keeps up I'm going to have to install another cup holder on the tractor.

Got a little tractor time today. The st10 was on drag duty. Plowed and reseeded the small garden that's not going to be a garden next year.

Gave all of mine a great big hug, and told them they all will stay and not be sold!

LOL...This is funny...

Used the lgt 165 today to plow in a new under ground dog fence today. Dad made the cutter years ago and it just fastens to the plow frame. I added the gauge wheel last time I used it. The wire spools off as you go. It works very good.

In my never ending quest to find ways to use the JD 317 and JB Sr. I think I'm the only one who used their tractor to carry dying water hyacinth and work it into the compost pile today.

That's a good looking compost pile. If I had a jb sr I would be doing anything I could find to use it for.

Grabbed the 10 hitched to the 110 and proceeded to clean up leaves and sticks in the back yard. Hauled two full trailers to the brush pile and then mowed the grass. Round two will take place later this week when the silver maple behind the house decides to drop the rest of its leaves.

I spent the weekend tackleing a rock and catus patch that was started by clearing the 1st acre of my property over 15 years ago. I really needed a bob cat, ot at least a FEL. But all I have is Hulk II and a trailer. Here is what it looked like before. And the start of the clearing on Saturday.
