Finally got a break in the weather for a couple days and got the last of the plants in the ground!!!
Saturday Morning I took the Ford 1500 and 5Ft brush mower and mowed for about an Hour.
Then The Wife and I planted the last of the tomatoes. Then it started raining, so I went to the garage and cleaned it up enough I( could work on the John Deere 318.
Sunday afternoon we got the last of the pepper plants and Herbs in. I took the Super Bronco and tilled between the potatoe Rows. The last row of potatoes that were planted late(about 3 weeks ago) started popping up Saturday afternoon. Those are novelty potatoes, Mountain Rose, Purple Majesty and Colorado Pearls and it looks like they will make a full row.
Considering all the rain we have got, I don't feel too bad about getting planting done by June 2nd??
Guess this will test my theory that late gardens, put plants outside the life cycle of some insect pests?
I had saved a lot of grass for mulch and with all the rain on it it was spoiling so I pushed that into the compost pile and turned the pile.
I did get the new spindle in the 318 deck last night Took a while since I twisted off some shield mounting bolts and had to drill them out and replace with carriage bolts.so will be mounting it tonight. They are predicting rain again for Tuesday and Wednesday.
I can't imagine life on a dairy farm like Daniel?? I only have 9 acres and never run out of things needing done, Equipment needing fixed, and weather putting everything behind schedule!
