Just remember those guys in the "banana belt" will be working a lot more than we will up North.  But for your info we have a few green field up here also.  Rye grass that was planted as a cover crop last fall is coming back to life already.  One mower down, three to go.  #2 today.

WOW.......!  No mowing here yet, and will be a few weeks at least.

The Mowing has already started. Seeds are started, garden planed. The wifes Deere started to have a deck issue, like one of the rear hangers is hanging on by a small bit of metal. The rest is cracked and rusted. The Green Bolens (modern MTD unit) has been put into use mowing while the Deere deck gets repaired.

In all of this I am behind on getting the plow mounted on the Bolens 800 so the garden can be plowed.

I hope that the sleeve hitch build gets done this weekend and we can get to plowing.
