Yesterday I hauled 10 or so loads of sawdust with my Cub Cadet 147 and cheap dump cart.  I overloaded the cart when I got down into some wet sawdust.  Twice It dumped the load when I hit a bump too fast.

The neighbor boy helped with their horse and wagon.  It was about 20 degrees out, and windy, but we were sweating.  I have sawdust in every part of my clothes, my ears, my eyes. 

I am starting a new compost pile.  The neighbor has a saw mill that produces a mountain of saw dust.  He said I took about two days worth of sawdust.  I want a tractor with a loader, maybe a dump truck or dump trailer.  I fear I will get so far behind on sawdust that he starts selling it.  I have 100 acres to stockpile it until I get enough Nitrogen to compost it.

 

Today I moved my John Deere lawn tractor out of the horse trailer, as well as the push mower, the reel mower, the tiller, and various decks and parts.  Its time for it to become a horse trailer again, not a shed on wheels.

Sorry for the extra post, but we are having wayyyyy too much fun with BMP and the Cedar bush.

My Daughter wanted to try her luck dragging out one of the large Cedar branches. This is FUN!

I freed the rusted hinges on my heavy cart.  Then I picked up several loads of sawdust from the next door neighbor.

I started a new compost pile.

It was only a drop in the bucket compared to what the mill produces, but it was a lot of work,  If I do that every weekend, I'll get somewhere.  That was 10-15 loads in the field pile.  I also added a load to the horses' shed and a load in the compost pile by the house.

 

I also took three of my sons on a ride around the farm.

I FINALLY got the Round Fender that I have wanted.  I bought 3 318s this week and traded one of them for a 112 hydraulic round fender.  I has the sleeve hitch and the head lights on it.  The 318 needs some work but it had a Ruegg 3 point on it.  Both of us were happy with the trades so all it good.

Saturday Dad got the truck and trailer stuck in the yard. We had to get the Ferguson with the chains to pull it out.

Sunday, while Dad was out of town for a while, Kaylen and Ryan took turns on the ST16 with the lawn roller for a couple of hours helping straighten the mess out. They did a good job.

My son and I moved the fleet to the house from a barn two fields away. I send him on his way and close the gate. I hop in the truck drive down the road so I can open the gate on our end. I dropped some corn to the steers while I was waiting on him.

I got tired of cleaning the shop so I used the 1650 to haul the Buick back on the farm to its resting place.
