I use winter rye. Green manure is needed in this part of central Missouri.

Planted cabage, peas and green beans a couple weeks ago as fall garden crops. Weather has been on the cool side, so not sure if there is going to be any late season vegetables. Expecting an early hard frost.


Eugene: Cabbage, Califlower and Brocclii can take pretty cold temps(not sure about the peas and green beans though the green beans are really putting on in this cool weather). I am going to make some hoops from 12.5 ga electric fence wire ( I have it on hand) and low hoop the cabbage, califlower and brocclii. I understand iy you put plastic over the hoops the cole crops will withstand and produce down to about 20 degrees. This is a new experiment for me, so we shall see?

All I did was mow my acre with the MF12. Third time since I bought it. Couple minor issues but I'm gettin' the bugs worked out of it.
This tractor is faster and funner to mow with than anything I've ever used! I call it my "old fart ATV"

Hooked the tiller up to the Ford and tilled up a spot under the new 'Tractor Port'. Then I hooked up the Sears blade and drug some of the dirt out of the way. Boy, this tractor needs some down pressure so the blade will cut, it's silly trying to use it without some down pressure. I HATE FLOAT!!

Used the Ford and Sears blade to grade in to the new "floor" of the 'tractor port'. I am very happy with the purchase of this tractor, wonderful piece of equipment. Would be better if it had some down force on the sleeve hitch.

Made a bunch of laps around the property before making room in the garage for a new to me 318 - I think I broke the heart of my X320 when I drove the new toy in

Got all kinds of Crazy Saturday! Had about 3 cares of Clover grown over with giant Foxtails about 4 ft high.
Mowed it twice with the 22 Hp Murray and then ran over it with the 318 woth powerflow bagger to pick up the straw mulch.
It looks pretty good, just more than any reasonable thinking guy would do with a GT?

Got the Massey 1010 out to pull my trailer loaded down with heavy treated 2x8's, & 2x12's, up to 16' long. Likely around 2500lb+, trailer included. Massey didn't mind a bit! Repairing barnyard panels.

It's gear, but sure wish it was hydro. Mowing is too slow in 2nd, and waaaay too fast in 3rd. Hydro is king for speed selection.
