Who Else Is Going To Have A Lot Of Landscaping To Do?

The ironic thing is that the trails in the woods are dry! And the 4-10 inch ruts are usually full of water!

We usually call this the mud season and it lasts into April here. Good Luck, Rick

I don't want to talk about what ruts I made today. I had to move a tractor into the shop, and push it with another antique tractor. Through the yard. Brilliant.
As soon as the swamp drains, I'll be working the Gravely again. Which means "seat time" (or "between handle bar time") so I guess that'll be a good thing.

So far so good here. I made some ruts at dad's this winter, using the 318 to snow blow paths to the chicken barns and such. We'll see what havoc was wreaked on the lawn.

During the winter months everything is already inside and don't go through yard. Come spring, the tractors will leave an unbearable amount of ruts, while plowing, harrowing and scraping. The ditches will more than likely need re-dug and some new dirt will have to be scraped up to fill in holes. All in all if you can't see it driving by, we don't worry about it until we have nothing else to do.

Funny how you brought this up. Just today, I was noticing how muddy it was getting around the farm. I was leaving some really deep
ruts when I was spreading today. Getting some pretty bad ruts from vehicles on the lawn too. Oh well, it will make for some seat time smoothing them all out with the Cub Cadet come spring.

I have been at this place 10 years now. This is the worst I have seen so far! I have a few old trucks I want to junk but it is way... to muddy. I also need to work on my truck but it's to muddy by the shop and they are showing more rain and or snow from tonight all the way till next Monday.

Sunday afternoon had a F-350 with a JD 850 on a trailer stuck in the FRONT yard up to the axles in mud.
Pulled it out with my F-150 4x4 while hooked together.

Tomorrow I am going to put the plow on the Dragonfly and dig some drainage. I have so much standing water it is ridiculous.

Is this an indication, that the north american drought cycle is coming to an end?
Mid west is finally getting some precipatation, we're getting more up here than
we've had in years.

So far the lawn didn't get messed up to bad. My brother ("professional landscaper") owes me a day of work at my house, so this weekend will be the time to fix up all the beds. When he pulls in with his rig, we can get done in an afternoon what would take me several days. Not to bad a deal for me.

I think I would be building an Ark!

I didn't get my trenches dug today. Hopefully the rain will go away for a while and I wont need them.
Starting to wish I had kept the pontoons I took off that boat now. Wonder if they would have floated the BlueOx.
