With most of the garden dying off, the weeds are having a field day in my garden. Can't have that, so I brought out the Gravely 5460 and used the bush hog to mow done the corn stalks and turn everything to mulch. Then I used my Massey 12 G and plowed about 2/3rds of it. The plow did a really good job of burying the surface trash the bush hog left. When I finished, I cleaned the dirt off the plow and put a coat of paint on so it won't rust over the winter.
Also pulled up all of my (few) onions. I suppose about 2/3 of them lived, and they grew to a nice size, about the size of a golf ball.
Now to wait and see if the tomatoes ever do anything.
Almost forgot, Son1 wanted to run the Gravely with bush hog, so I let him. He got about 20 feet away and got the skid caught on a metal stake, which the tractor promptly pushed over and began to run down. I wasn't too upset about that, accidents happen, but I'm really wondering where his mind was that the tractor ran over all 4 foot of pole before he stopped it-and it was in slow gear. Only damage was to the pole, and after I assured him that accidents happen, I just want him to react more quickly next time, he finished cutting there and another spot that needed whacking.
