Sunday worked the front yard and around the back of the house to dry it out enough to plant some lawn.
Played hooky from work today as I have a window to get it in between rains and hopefully not have it wash away.

Took my 5 month old for a ride on the GT6000 to give her something different to do and new stuff look at. It was very cute, every time she saw something that caught her interest, she'd flap her arms, kick, & say "OOOO - OOOO - OOOO".

Today I put my deck back on my 1050 and mowed for a bit for the first time since I rebuilt the engine. What a difference in power! :dancingbanana:

You know, I didn't touch a arm or garden tractor today...oh wait, yes I did, fed silage with the MF285. Other than that, spent the day milking this am, then fixing a frost proof waterer, then put metal on outside of chicken barn...on the sunny side no less. Tractors would have been more fun!

Mowed some around the silage pits with the JD 935, then mowed side yard with the Kubota. Dang is is dusty as all get-out! Sure wish it would rain. Only thing really growing is crab grass.

Cut grass with the MF 1655 [Grandson]& GC 2300[myself] yesterday.Hasn't been cut in 2 weeks,it was badly in need of a cut.We were away for 2 weeks on a holiday. We were lucky we did it when we did as we got 1 1/2" of rain overnight.It's very wet here,looks like farmers are going to have a tough time getting crops off again.It's good to be home and start getting some seat time on the tractor again.Larry

Ahhhg!! Been mowing more around the manure pit & hay roll barn. Man, dust is so bad I can hardly see! Not just dust from dry ground, but the dry crab grass clippings from last mowing. I could have waited, but there were slick areas I couldn't get last go round & "may" be some rain in the morning, so got it cut today. I much prefer Springtime/early summer mowing! The hydro in the JD 935 needs topped off. Can tell she's a bit below add.

Took the JD 74-112 with the #10 cart out to trim & chip some trees. Transmission broke on the 112 (I have a spare). Got the JD 83-420 out to bring in the 112 & finish the job! After chipping with the Troybilt 10HP chipper/shredder, I got the 790 w/loader out & mulched some shrubbery, until it started raining!

Need to bring in some more mulch this Fall! ~~ grnspot110

Me and the neighbor got bored so we hooked the tractors together and had a pull.I used the bolens HT23 and he had a jd2210 with a loader.You can guess the outcome but the bolens pulled his setup about 15 feet on blacktop then he put his in 4x4 and did the same to me so we called it a draw LOL.

Dust has caused me to resort to mowing early morning with heavy dew. Sure it kicks out a clump on occasion but I get it the next mowing. To me it's well worth it to have a water mist exiting at 70°F as opposed to dust at 95°F late afternoon. The Briggs and I are both air cooled.:D

On my Cub 123 that I recently acquired, I have been needing to drain the hydro fluid and replace the filter. This afternoon, I got it drained and cleaned out (didn't need much, it looks real clean in there!!), and replaced the filter. Tomorrow, I should be receiving a gasket for the hydro rear cover, then I can put it back together and fill it up with fluid. I also cleaned the 90* gearbox that drives the #1 tiller. Tomorrow, I'll check the fluid in it, then mount it back on the tractor.

This evening, we're getting some much-needed rain! Look at zip code 72712 on the Weather Channel website and you'll see a big line of storms rolling thru!
