Yesterday I put the last of the leaves on the garden and used the S-16 to til them in. They seem to break down a little better once they are mixed in. Now the garden is ready for winter and very little seat time til spring.

Plowed under the garden and corn patch today. Nice to not look at the weeds any more.

This weekend I will be putting the front blade and maybe the cab on.

Today was the last weekend of PA's firearm deer season. I got a deer last Saturday and another today.
Last weekend, I got my deer in a field where I could drive the tractor to it. I came back to the house and grabbed three little helpers, my three oldest sons (5, 3, and 2.) I think they were more excited by the tractor ride than the deer.

Today's deer wasn't as cooperative. I had to drag it up a steep hill to where the tractor could get it. I ended up hauling out my deer and two neighbor teenagers and their deer in the same load. No pics, since Amish don't like having their pictures taken.

I butchered two deer last Sunday, and we will do another tomorrow.

Cleaned the week's snow off the driveway. I'd guess there was about 4 to 6 six inches accumulated a bit at a time.

Had to boost the 420, so there's likely a new battery in my future. Or I can just keep boosting it through the winter and see what summer brings.

Used the JD 317 to move brush, move attachments and harrow the driveway. I got the yard ready for the three storms we have headed our way this week. At least one of them ought to drop some snow.

Drug the gantry crane and two engine blocks out of the way with the Hemorrhoid since the DragonFly was out of gas.

Plowed the garden. I had a bunch mulched leaves that needed to be turned under. Next I hope to spread a trailer load of manure.

Gave my 8 year old grandson his first tractor driving lesson, his legs are finally long enough to push in the clutch on the JD210

Reminded me of my 6 Years old Grandson in this Vid.

Dosn't get better than this.

I put the chains on the JD 214 and got to use it to scrape the 1" of freezing rain accretion off the paved part of the driveway. I had forgotten how much fun plowing is! Too dark when I finished for pictures.

Just finished plowing the driveway. It varied from 1" to 3" of slush and snow. First time for this tractor, Bolens H16. Did a good job and I haven't even gotten around to putting the chains on yet. I guess at +700 lbs it has pretty good traction without chains.

Fired up the HT20D and did a bit of snow plowing :dancingbanana:

It was going so good that I plowed the walk all the way down the block :D :D :D

Also did the neichbor's driveway while I was at it. He had some major surgery, and there's no need for him to have to be out shoveling snow.

It looks like I may end up doing it again tomorrow morning as well, at least from what the "weather guessers" are saying.

Pushed all the shredded leaves up into a compost pile.
