Saturday, I mowed the yard with the JD140. Then my son cut my lot next door with the JD285. Spent the afternoon mounting a winch on the front of the trailer to make dragging stuff home easier. Good day with the tractors.

Tried to plow the garden friday night, was able to make a few passes but it was to wet.

Saturday I got the yard mowed with a borrowed Zero Turn (dad's country clipper=awesome mower), then pulled the lawn sweeper behind the LGT 165.
Then I thought I would try plowing again. It had dried out a lot durning the day saturday with the wind and sun shine.
Garden all plowed:

Then I started working up a area for my FIL to plant some sweet corn.

Plowing the sod under sure made the 165 work, but Rusty pulled strong.

Then the inspecter came out after her nap:

She was pleased with my work, but said it was time to come inside.

You did a good job with the plowing. Glad the inspector is pleased. Do you have weights on the 165?

I used the Sears SS12 with the sickle bar mower. The wife suggested we put some more sand in the sand box since our son is 18 months and likes to play with his trucks. She made a call to the local sand and gravel pit and found out we could get a couple of yards of sand for $30. So I hitched up the trailer to the pickup and all three of my daughters wanted to go so we went and got some sand. When I got there I was able to get beach sand which is better for making sand castles and the like for the same price. Got home and removed a section of fence and fired up the Bolens 1600H and hitched it up to the utility trailer. We decided to remove what was left of the old sand in the sand box and I ended up using it to fill in a low spot in the back yard. We placed a part of a load of beach sand in my sons crab sand box which is over near the fire pit. This will keep him occupied and away from the fire when we are using the fire pit. The rest of the sand went into the sand box in the back yard. We hauled 4 loads out of the sand box and 4 loads back in. I will need to get some more beach sand later this week to finish filling it up. My son isn't quite sure of the sand box yet but the girls are loving it.

Using the Massey 1855 w/FEL to clean the calf stalls. Long overdue job. Have the manure spreader full and will take another load tomorrow to finish, then clean the muck from around the waterer for the 3rd load.

Ran up to Moms and Dads. Ryan plowed the garden and I ran behind with the tiller. Got the whole thing done and still had time for a cup of coffee before Ryan's bedtime.

Well this afternoon I used my Sears SS12 to do something I haven't done since before my grandfather passed away 22 years ago, skid logs for firewood. I used to help my grandfather skid logs for his firewood with this same tractor. Skidding logs takes a little patience and being able to pick your path through the woods. I was helping my FIL get out wood for my wife's 92 year old grandfather. He still burns wood in the winter and he used to be able to get his own wood. He used to cut, split and stack his wood in the fall for the following winter. We are a little behind this year as we all work jobs and I live a half hour away. Here is an action shot. 0506111424.jpg

Finished up mucking out the calf stalls with the MF1855 & FEL. 3 HUGE manure spreader loads, for likely around 5 to 6 tons of stuff. Then I put my 3pt blade on the diesel JB to clean up all the barn's drive through area. Barn looks great now and calves are very happy! Then I took my Grandson Case for a ride on the diesel JB. Then tonight I mowed the yard with my Kubota G4200. Nice day!!!!!
