Yesterday was a real nice day and getting GT fever I figured I needed to find a little seat time so I walked my garden and it seemed good... So I started off and rolled over 4 or 5 nice furrows when backing up for the next cut I went down clean to the bottom.. DOH!! Knowing my garden has a bottom( thank goodness!) I lifted the plow as high as I could , selected hi range , throttled up and floored the hydro! He chewed and churned a good 30' before I found hard ground... Guess I'll stay out of there for a while yet LOL.

Same here. Still some snow in my garden here. It will be a late start to the gardening season this year.

Our garden is just now peeking out from under the snow, it would be a great place to have a GT mud bog boogie  :D

Ran into a simular thing Friday night myself. Running the middlebuster through the potato patch. First few passes I found the ground perfect for tilling( in fact my ground had never been better). But in the middle of the patch it was a bit wet but I got through it . I let it sit overnight and went back in with the tiller Saturday about 10:30  and got it tilled, it had dried some. Furrowed it up with the middle buster, planted 50 lbs of cut potatoes and covered them with the hiller.

Monday I rolled over a few more furrows before it got too soft to get enough traction...then it rained... All day Tuesday... And woke up at 3am to find the ground solid white... Boy what a winter.... Give it up already its time for a bit of color!!! I've had enough of the gray scale scenery!!
