Used my G16XT to disc up the part of the garden that is not planted.  Hopefully tearing it up with help dry it out. Got the first batch of Radish and boy are they ever good this year.  They like the cool wet weather.  Cabbage are doing great also.

Not "mine" but a rented unit: I dug a bunch of trenches to help drain water from around my shed.

Today I cleared all the junk out of an area where I'm going to put a 12x31 ft RV shed.
Filled a cart full of junk.

Them I used the Brinly sweeper to rake up all the accumulated leaves.

As it started raining I started mulching the leaves using my 42" mower on my 3414.

Then after getting the all chopped down to size I used my 916h with belly mounted blade to scrape the leaf litter into piles.

Then I installed my Johnny Bucket on my 3414 and scooped up all the leaf litter and dumped it into a compost pile in the corner of my lot.

Garden plot is now able to dry out in preparation for plowing and tilling.

After a cleanup the girls are tucked in for the night.

Not one of my better days, and no I would be ashamed to post pictures.
Took the 1500 and 5 ft brush cutter down to mow across the waterway.
Did not know the down stream side of the crossing had washed out.
Wound up with the two right wheels in a hole and hung up on the mower.
Tried to pull it out with my 2 wd ford f150 and did not have enough traction.

Neighbor saw the mess I was in and brought over his 4 wheel drive one ton dually, it did not even strain pulling me out.
So I did my mowing on that side of the ditch,and started moving dirt to rebuild the water waY crossing.

Mowed the yard with the F725:  HPIM1628.JPG  Would have waited a day or two, but rain predicted by mid-morning tomorrow through the weekend.

 

Then, hauled three loads of sawdust  up from the back bin with the 70I &10P cart:  HPIM1654.JPG

Reworked the waterway crossing mentioned in last post. Took the weed eater down and took the weeds back to where I could see what was going on. The culvert stuck out 6 ft plus from the edge of the 10 ft drive?
I can not understand why anyone would put in a 16 foot culvert and only build a 10 ft drive?
So I built a treated wood dam about 6 inches from the end. Then filled it in with dirt.
I now have 16 ft drive, in case I get a baler and want to bale on the other side of the ditch.
There was a plastic picket fence on each side. Of the drive.
I am not putting that back till it has settled, since it is likely I will need some more fill.
