I hear you,  but my garden is so small that I'd be done in 10 minutes! With snow plowing I get lots more seat time.   :wave:

I can bundle up from the cold better than I tolerate the heat. Plus there are very few bugs now. I did find a mosquito in the house a few days ago. Plus with snow you can really play with pushing it here and there and there again.

Now we know not to pay you by the hour!! :bounce:  :bounce:

 

I'd love to have some snow to push, myself.  Two blades, a Gravely walkbehind and a Massey 12 hydro can be ready to go as soon as the first flake actually is forecast!  I was fortunate enough to plow my garden just a month or so ago, perhaps it needs to be disced?

Plowing the garden hurts my neck....plowing snow s less of a neck pain, but doesn't smell as nice lol.

I'd much rather be out in the garden, I don't have enough driveway for snow plowing... Besides, I hate the cold.

I'm too lazy to redo things but with lots of snow you plow it out of the way. If it doesn't melt before the next snow is coming you have to push the piles farther back to make room for the new snow. Last week end I got 10" of snow and the weather guessers said another storm was coming so, I plowed and pushed back as far as I could for 4 hours on Sunday. By that time plowing had gotten real old. NC is where my wife and I had wanted to settle but life had its own plans. Instead of worrying about snow plowing you should be playing tractor polo.

Yeah you might want to get in the first discing! I'm sure your a few months closer to planting than I am.

thats half the fun of pushing snow is the move piles here and there making room for more snow making paths to shed or like me i make a pth to the fire pit all the way around the back yard i need a bigger lot so i can get more seat time pushing snow around

Im with ya on plowing the garden.  Actually, Id rather be at a plow day! Although, I guess since Ive never had to plow snow, I have a somewhat biased vote.
