Well I must say, that was a great day at the Bell farm!  Perfect weather, great people, wonderful food.  You just can't ask for a better way to spend a Saturday.  Great to see and meet everyone.  Let's do it again next year!

I just arrived home, and it was a fun day for sure. I got tangled up with Jeff's (David brown) square walled furrows near the end of my fun plowing with my disc plow resulting in stall out conditions. :poke:

Otherwise I had tons of fun plowing by myself since everyone else seemed to be one pass and done, claiming to dislike my round walled furrows, which makes no sense since tires are round too. :poke:

Ok, enough jabs, back to the real reason to post. Thanks to the Bell's for hosting such an excellent event that keeps growing each year.

George and I just got home a short time ago and had a great time at the plow day. We experienced a few problems but with such great weather and wonderful members to talk to,how can you have anything but a good day. I want to thank the fine folks at FCVAEC for staging another great plow day. I also want to thank the Bell family for being such wonderful hosts. Looking forward to next year already.

I just wanted to post a few pics I took when the day was just starting. I know Alan (MH81) and his family took quite a few pictures which I am looking forward to seeing. Here are my few.

Dude, square is where it's at.  I must admit, the disk plow does an awsome job but it does leave that little radius behind.  The way I have my plow set up, I only take the radius off when I follow you.  As a result, if I want to look like I know what I'm doing and am having no problems at all, I get behind you.  I turn some dirt and I don't get stuck.  There is a method to my madness.

That's a big laugh, because you could take way bigger bites out of the Earth in my round furrows. You just wait until next year. Rumor has it another (in addition to mine) Farmall Cub will be disc plowing there.

If you do find a disc plow that would be awesome, and a rare sight for sure. Most those disc plows are in the South.

OK, Got some pics up.

They are in the Gallery here: http://gardentractor...show/album-785/

This new camera is going to make me drink heavily.  It was set to an artsy setting for part of the time that Ryan had it.

Most of the plowing pics are from page 3 on.
