Yep, right above Cincinnati, i know that area a little, mostly Warren county, very nice area, tornato valley is near there, city of Xenia, wiped of the map in the early 80's by a mile wide F-5 tornato.

 

I always stayed below, Mount Orab, Louisville, Ky, all open land down there too.

Ah, Germantown, i knew it more by name, been through it before during my travels, not too far from Wilmington if i recall correctly.

 

Moderator Daniel is Ky, dairy farmer, you can see his thread ''my farm, good, bad, ugly''.

 

I really wish we had a better more affordable mini used tractor market in this country to work with, smaller then compact and for garden tractors, mini hay baler, tether, side delivery rake, sickle mower, for micro farmers like you and someone like me with only 3 horses. A mini round hay baler would be very cool to have, i see for walk behinds such as BCS and Grillo but very expensive.

 

I don't mean to hijack your thread, like a lot us on this fourm i am still mid-western at heart.

There is not many GTs in my area and when I do see them they are higher than a full sized tractor. I don't need a full size tractor for 2 acres of land.

Thanks for all of the above, this has been an interesting thread--- nice to see how growing stuff differs in other parts of this world. My garden is just nicely coming off, tomatoes are all picked except for a few planted in pots on the step for snacking, will be canning chard soon, made hot salsa yesterday, picked three gallons of highbush cranberries yesterday as well. The Canada geese are moving out of the arctic already, heard them last night around midnight when I was out checking the sky before bedtime. Time to wrap up another year of growing things, get'er all tilled up and snug down for winter. And of course make plans for next year.

That's great that you can grow most of the year . I was planting lettuce and spinach in a cover raised bed in fall to get an early spring crop but last year it was so cold for soooo long  everything froze out . :(    But I'll try it again this year

Yesterday I planted my fall garden; radishes, lettuce, peas, onion sets, garlic and parsnips. They will not germinate now but sit under the dirt and snow until spring and sprout when nature tells them it is alright to do so. Today I may put in some tomato seed that I had left over from spring seeding. I have had them come from seed that got worked in when I cultivated down some waste tomatoes--- it's worth a try.
