Is it always foggy there ? I challenge you guys to come here and do the same !! We still have 6" of frost in the ground ! But it's supposed to warm up this week so it's gonna be time to start the green house action and get things going. Need to pick stones first.. That's one thing that really grows good here LOL.
Nice work too, looks like you guys had fun. Also, is that blue machine a tracked unit ? How slow is it ?

I believe the blue tracked machine is a Ransommes Crawler but which model it is I don't know. I am sure George will let us know. And yes his mates' ploughing skills are awesome.

Getting a straight first furrow is an art form.
And as if I wasn't itchy enough for a plow match.

Thanks for sharing.
