Got the rotospader out of mothballs evenings this past week and reroute s the fuel line + cleaned the carb + did a head gasket job. Don't know what the specific problem was, but I think it was vapor locking because the fuel line ran thru the tins of the engine.

Anyways test run tonight, it did great.



KK marked the rows out

Then we started planting.. We got the peas and beans planted with the golden harvest walker and the Brinly did the sweet corn.

We still have the carrots, Swiss chard, beets and hopefully a second late planting of peas and corn.

And weed it some more, of course after your done weeding it you can look forward to weeding it. But on the bright side, you can weed it,then after that you could always weed it. :wallbanging:  Did I mention weeding it! :( :deadhorse:

WOW! Great looking garden. For 15 years, we have been a family sworn to NEVER plant before the middle of May. Too many weather variables.

 

This year we decide to "cheat" and started to plant on St.Patrick's Day.

 

Some good, some replanted. This is fun!!   :thumbs:

Alan, the garden looks pretty good.  The rotospade worked great.  It's also really nice to see the Brinly planter working.

For me that's watering, watering and watering some more!!! :deadhorse:

Weeding is nothing compared to watering here
