Kathy used the 919H and the simplicity trailer to haul 12 small cedar trees that she wanted to relocate from up by the house to a line along the south channel edge. Then she rounded up a few misc piles of firewood that we had cut up. I was busy working on our French door all weekend, darn thing leaked during heavy rains, but pretty sure I cured it.
No tractor time for me but it was a beautiful weekend for us here!

I used my newly acquired grader blade on my driveway, had so much fun I just had to do my neighbors driveway as well. Did a real nice job at it...
Chopped up a bunch of leaves the other day. My yard and driveway haven't looked this good for a very long time. I love my little 857...I've been on youtube looking at WH vids. Now I'm wanting a ball burner. Sooo cool:thumbs:

Since we had Ryan's tractor up &running, we pulled my lawn roller up where we could drain the oil out. Grand total 20 gal.

We then took a bunch of sand out of the old sandpile (not used anymore) and spread it around on the pavement. Let the sun and wind do it's thing, running the rake once in a while.

When it dried, we poured it in and then rolled it around. Makes a big difference with sand. Then we poured in a couple gal of the oil just for rust prevention. Let Ryan pull it around for a while. He had fun.

Used my Massey with loader to move some heavy GT parts around today. Then lifted the almost whole JD110 & toted it to my shop door for dis-assembly.

I'm still working on the leaves with the 314 & Huskee (Agri-Fab) sweeper! Added about a foot to the tongue on the sweeper to make it easier to back into the unloading area! ~~ grnspot

Did a little garden work today. Topped up the raised beds with compost. Worked at it all afternoon and am not half done. There sure are a few boxes out there. I need a FEL on something so i don't have to fork it all onto the trailer and then back off into the beds. I remember to take a camera with me so here are a few pictures. I accidentally deleted one of the best pictures.:wallbanging::wallbanging::wallbanging:

This was the first time using this camera. It is very small and easy to carry but I see that it doesn't take the greatest pictures. While I was taking pictures I accidentally took a short video. It is very short but it looks as good or better than the pictures and you can hear the engine running.

Jumped on the MF10, and chased a blue heron away from the trout pond. Actually it was just seat time. It flew away
as soon as the 10 fired up.

Fred & I were supposed to be at New Harmony, IN today plowing, but it got rained out mid-week. So I took my diesel JB Bush Hog to our corn field with low areas & a drainage ditch down the center. I plowed a single furrow down each wet zone down to the drainage ditch to help keep the ground from being so wet in the spring. Wasn't easy with the dead crabgrass so thick, clogging the plow, but got it done. Next year I'll be sure to take a bush hog mower up there first. Not anything near a plow day, but I did get to turn a little dirt still!

Thanks. You are right on the work. I have been working with my father and have no time during the week (leave before dawn and back after dark), so I got to do everything on Saturday(I rest and hang out with the family on Sunday or I don't feel ready to go back to work for a week) Hope the good weather holds out for a few more weeks.

I have an IPhone app called Ambiance. It allows you to record sounds to use as background sound. Well I fired up Punkin today and record a minute of it Idling. Now that is music to the ears. I can listen to it any time I need something soothing. I think its better than rainfall. :smile1:
While I was at it I also installed the newly paint Swivel hitch Mod number 2 to take some pictures. So here they are. Just needed to show off a bit.
