I'm getting enough snow every morning to make me feel hopeless about getting out into the garden.

Really should have just left the snow blade on the craftsman... By now it would be above 0 degrees Celsius at night.

Mowing we just got more snow in central Michigan but I'm sure it won't be long. That reminds me I got to put spindle bearings in my JD 212 deck. Also needs a little welding. And to the other post I justoved into a new house last fall and I Ave been waiting to get my garden plowed and lots of yard work

Sitting here thinking I might do first mowing this weekend, go figure snowed last weekend but lawn is

greening up and looking like it needs mowing. Oil change and greasing for snow blower this weekend

and fueling mowers, prepped last afall so they are ready for use, its been a long winter for sure.

More snow for me this morning. Really want it to dry out so I can't plow my garden. Got spindles pulled out ready to put bearings in just haven't got around to pressing them apart

Ya can't wait hopeing to try plowing this weekend. It might be a little bit wet still but I'm plowing sod so that might help it dig in a little better

Also think I smoked the drive belts on my JD 212 when I was plowing. They weren't good to begin with but now the variable speed is way out of adjustment.
