Composted, and composted! The berries, this time.  :dancingbanana:

We put our newspapers under the compost. The worms like to "read" it. They go for the funnies, first!  :D

Last week I upgraded my electrical service and had to dig up the old 2" steel conduit and replace it with a new 2" PVC conduit with a wide radius sweep. We had dug through my crushed limestone aand down 3 ft into grey and red clay. The three inch rain we had Sunday made it all a slick ankle deep mess. I got busy this morning and scraped away the clay goop off the top of the limestone

I plan on moving my RV into this area so I buried a retainer board to hold crushed limestone so that I could level up the pad. I needed to add 5-8 " of stone to get it near level where the side yard slopes away from the house .

I hauled in just 2 cy of #57 crushed limestone (about 2.5 tons) and off loaded with the Johnny bucket on Sweet Allis (3414s) and spread with an Agri-Fab back blade behind Clyde(916H) I smoothed it out by back dragging with the Johnny bucket. I really like the back blade on the hydro lift.... Really have a lot of depth control but it is hard on my neck . Wish I could find a belly blade or even a dozer blade.

It was a long day but it would have been a long week if I didn't have the tractors and attachments.

Mowed the farm areas with the JD935 last night, then following an early am rain, it dried enough to mow my yards a while ago with the JD430.  After lunch it's time to clean some manure from the calf feed trough inside the barn with the Massey 1655D w/FEL.

We were going to meet with some friends that were camping about 10 miles from us so I had to to rush to get the yard mowed and all of the trimming done. About 1/4 way through a nice fella stopped because he saw my newest GT-14 in the back of the truck and saw my Kubota staged in the batters box about ready to start finish mowing. We chatted a while, he has a white wheel horse, a Kubota 6000 and a Cub 1200. I told him to stop in anytime!

 

Anyway, I almost got finished trim mowing with the 140 and went to turn around a tree and the steering wheel went loose... The bolt that the pivot arms turns on broke... only 45 years worth of use... what a crock. Guess I'll get on that tomorrow. Anyway, luckly I was almost finished so I went on and mowed with the Kubota.

Mowed more with my newest F935 after milking, and she runs perfectly now with the auto-air purge system I installed this morning.  Then I mowed around my home with the JD430.  Once done, Ioaded up my 430 & took it to my FIL's, and brought his JD420 home with me to repair it for him.

Mowed some of my lawn with the old MF10 today. Hadn't mowed with it for several years. Normally this is my snow blowing tractor and it sits all summer. It ran like a top just like it always does in winter.

yellow one.jpg I have a, new to me, 185 cub low boy.  I had my first chance to try it out today.  I mowed a large yard at my mother's home and an area in the pasture about 50 ft. wide outside my yard fence.  I was impressed and depressed with the day.  The tractor starts, run, and mows great.  Typical of most cub low boys, it is very underpowered and had blow by.

The last weekend in June we had a pig roast, to celebrate my birthday and ran out of parking for everyone. My neighbor  told some people they could park in his yard and it was just a little too wet so I spent about 3 hours trying to role out the trenches left behind.        The best part is I only got stuck twice, guess I needed to put on the chains ,but it looks  better and I plan on rolling it again in a few more days........gives me a reason to burn up some fuel in the old ford,and puts a HUGE smile on my face.

Got the JD314 out, put the Brinly box blade on it and ran over the trails to smooth them out and take out a few weeds that have popped up. Had so much fun that I ran it over the driveway to smooth that out after I scarified it with the 2320.

Been mowing today with both the John Deere 430 & F935.  While mowing with BOTH of them I had over-heating problems!  Yep, I got way too hot & had to cool myself off every little while.  The Deere's had no problems at all!   :D   I did lose a clip & pin off the 935, so came in for a cooling break.  Heat index is hovering around 102F at the moment......seems hotter than that though.

It was STUPID hot today. Drank a LOT of water but couldn't keep up and had to take a couple of breaks under a shade tree... Luckily I had my nephew around. SO... I taught him to run the finish mower and put him to work.
