I hooked the Bolens 600 to the utility cart to haul away a large bunch of bamboo that George wanted to cut away from the side of the pool. What I was hauling was the root balls from the plants. Our local township will take brush and trimmings every Saturday but doesn't like the dirt attached to the brush. The little 600 did it's usual great job.

Took the new MF10 & tiller up to Mom & Dad's and tilled their garden.

It worked really well. The offset allows for you to stradle the rows and get really close.

Also hauled the B10 up to cold storage and went and got a Wheel Horse for a buddy. While there, I asked if he had any wheel weights he'd sell. Got an old pair of IH style 25#ers for $20. Good day.

Didn't do too much with the garden tractors other then used the 1655 and the front end loader to move it's mower deck to out around back of the garage. Got the Cub Cadet 122 pulled out and moved over to the center bay of the garage to start tear down on it. Used the Massey MF12H to haul the recycle bins down to the end of the garage.

I didn't do squat with my tractors today, but been contemplating moving the Springfield 10 Horse out of my way later this evening, but will have to drop the tiller off the Case 444 as that is the only tractor I can access right now that runs.... (Caterpillar tear down in the middle of my shop). Mabey I will go do that now.

Being on a 'bender' this past weekend, all I got to do with a tractor was use the LT to mow. Rest of the time was spent repairing.

Yesterday evening, my wife and I were finally able to mow two yards that belong to a couple of widow ladies we know. One is a "normal" city lot that is fairly easy to keep up. The other is about an acre and a half, but flat and easy to mow. However, it had been a couple of weeks since we've been able to mow because of the recent rains, and we were out of town last weekend for a funeral, so the grass was about twice as tall as I normally let it get. Spent about 3 hours total getting the yards back in shape. It was extremely humid and not bit of a breeze. As my dad says, "I took a shower last night whether I needed it or not!"

Weeded the unplanted section of the garden using the LGT 165 with the cultivator and then the disc.

The cultivator is awesome, makes me think of a chisel plow. The disc doesn't work as good as I hoped, but I think with some changes and weight it will work better.

Yesterday, I planted 9 fruit trees, hauled tools & trees in the dump Cart, Some of the clay was too wet to put back in the hole.
So I hauled 4 bags of topsoil to plant the trees. Then put tools away and loaded the cart with wet clay till there was a healthy bulge in the tires.
Then hauled it down and put it in a gully. Just routine stuff.

Mowed my yard and hadn't had enough seat time, so I mowed across the road next to the woods. Makes it look a little less redneck here. Now if I could just get rid of these tents in my yard ( wife's yard sale ).
