Had to get the John Deere 430 out & mow my yard.  Wasn't bad, but sure looks better.  Wild onions & lots of "tufts" of grass shooting up.  Plus I just needed to smell fresh cut grass again.

Lucky you Daniel...Seat time and it wasn't snow plowing!!

 

Last weekend we were outside looking at the neighbors flowers and saw a dandelion in our back yard!

My wife tells everyone that "Ken has the best crop of dandelions in town"!

 

You know it is spring when the C-stores get their shipment of mulch!!

Just finished mowing around most of the farmyard areas with the JD F935.  No, it won't be as much fun mowing when it's in the 90's and I'm stacked up on work, so I'll just enjoy it now.  Many places I can't mow until I rake the gravel out of the grass.  Pushing the snow left lots of gravels in piles at the grass edges.

aint that the truth; I probably have 3 weeks to a month here around Chicago before I get to mow.  This year will be push mowing for a while. Had to dig up the yard 2 weeks before Christmas to have the septic pumped,  and I dug the trench from the house to the garage to bury my gas line for garage heat. (Didnt get a chance to get the heater hooked up yet though) more work than its worth to get the ZTR out to work around that til I get the yard back to how it was before. Will have to bring in a couple pickup loads (at least) of dirt as well
