Sometimes it takes a while for the payoff to come. I spent 2 yrs looking for a Scut/Compact Tractor. The wife thought I should get a larger GT Than my 318. When I brought home the 1500 Ford with 15" front wheels and 24" rear tires last September. The Skeptical look in her eyes was deafening.
Last week when I dug a 70 ft row of potatoes and brought them to the house in less than an hour, She Said" at our age that would have taken a day and a half digging with a fork. And I only found three potatoes that were showing minor damage(you are eating them for breakfast tomorrow morning). With a few more implements, that tractor is going to save us a ton of time."
I took that as permission to buy a few more implements?
Now THAT is an endorsement! I dug a row of potatoes this morning with my little Massey, went MUCH faster than digging by hand. I'm still a little concerned about loosing 'taters in the dirt, how do you go about finding the ones that aren't clearly visible?
