My onions just sat there all spring then died when it hit 90 degrees. Won't try that again.

Yep Brian, I was kinda disappointed in mine. You just can't water enough to equal a good rain, and the hot winds dry everything out so quickly. Used the 1600 again today to relocate a parts tractor and some other stuff Linda could see from the house. It's all junk to her. Told her she could solve that problem by building me a 80 x 40 barn (air conditioned of course). Don't think she bought the idea.

Cut some of the backyard. I made somewhat straight lines with the Bolens HT-20.

Luckily the trusty Kubota was able to get it un-stuck!

Done that too Michelle! I think there are 3 springs in my pasture/cornfield. I knew it was there but thought I had enough ground speed to run through the wet spot. Wrong again! Since my other tractor is down I had to jack it up and plank it out.
Then I ran it up to the shed and put chains on. Now I can run circles around the wet spot.

I had it wedged on the little hill there, plus the grass was damp in the shade. Not a helpful combination. I was proud of the Kubota though. (:

It's all a matter of marketing the project. I was remodeling our home about 25 yrs ago and was installing trim and mopboards using a cheap hand powered miter box. I was fussing and cussing cause that was not going well. My wife Jo who is very handy, suggested that she would do the cutting if I would do the install. I think it was about the third cut, when she said"that does it stop on your way home from work tomorrow and buy that power miter saw you have been wanting".

To steal a quote from that 1957 Pat Boone movie April Love" Showings better than telling".

Just used my front end loader bucket on my MF1855 to move our manure spreader inside our calf barn. It was blocking a gate where I needed to move some calves. This FEL is so darned handy!

Got the Bolens 1000 and tiller to knock down some weeds in our garden. The weeds and rocks are our best crop so far, but we are still learning and having fun as we go.
