I gave the Sears tractor with the loader a workout. I helped put in a new walking bridge over the creek in the park and we needed to carry gravel across the bridge for the approach on the far side. The pile of gravel was a ways away and the wheel barrow option looked like just to much work so out comes the Sears. It took about a dozen buckets of gravel but it was sure a lot easier with the tractor.

Too wet to do much last night. So I threw all my fencing tools & Wire in the dump cart and hauled them to the Micro orchard and guy wired trees.

I took 6 garden tractors and 2 plows to our countie's June Dairy Breakfast on saturday. They put on a breakfast at different farms each year and have farm tours, petting zoo, wagon rides, antique farm tractors, fire and rescue department displays and this year garden tractors. A huge crowd of people came out and I talked to a lot of them about the garden tractors.

I think I walked about 10 miles beside my Suburban while my grandson made endless trips around the back yard. He is 2 years old and his favorite thing is driving the old tractors.

Since you have it in "it's final resting spot", will you be getting a grave stone? LOL

Mowed again, had to top the weeds that were going to seed. Wanted to drive the Ford around, but got to hot.

Used the JD 74-112 & 10P cart to haul supplies to remove a dead shrub stump & plant a replacement this morning. The this afternoon, used the 83-420 to tow the chipper/shredder to the brush pile & back. Got it chipped, used the 112 & 10P to haul the mulch, plus acouple loads of sawdust to the back garden. ~~ grnspot

In memory of my glorious month as proud owner of Tractor of the Month, I fired her up, lowered the SickleMo, and
gave the pond banks a haircut.
Thank you to all that voted.
Oh heck, one more picture.:smile1::D

Saturday I ran the walk behind string trimmer for around 5 hours getting the much needed trimming done and clearing a few areas. Then I mowed part of the yard, and ran the cultivator through the soon to be pumpkin patch to knock down some weeds that were trying to creep in.

Finish up the mowing yesterday.

Hooked the middle buster to the Snapper 1600 A and dug my onions and potatoes. Didn't have as good a crop as I wanted but I guess it wasn't too bad considering lack of rain, the sustained 100+ degree weather and 20 to 30 MPH winds we've had this year.
