Let some of the grass grow this year, just cut it Thursday, raked it up on Friday, with the estate rake, then used the mf12 with loader and pushed it into a pile. Pick it up and put it inbetween the rows of the garden to help keep the weeds down. Mf14 with blade helped.

Some of the out sun tanning today.

Having a great Father's Day, hope you are too.

Noel

Edit: I had an 81 F-150, an 85 F-150 and an 86 F-250.  Those were all great trucks. Also had a 79 F-150, that was my first truck, 300 inline 6, 3 on the tree, manual steering. Loved that truck.

I do the same thing in my garden with newspapers and grass clippings, works great for weed control. Used the 16 to mow then the 12 to gather it up. That rake looks so neat behind your 7.

How does that take work for moving hay?

I do the same thing in my garden with the thatch that I pull up. I've also built a hand-baler so I can save some through the winter for early spring gardening.

Here it is. It makes bales that are 12x12x18".

The twine goes through the slots, you fill and press the dried grass multiple times until the bale is at the 18" mark, then you pass the twine through the slots again over the top of the bale, compress it and tie it.

I've been looking for something like this to make bales for my hay wagon.
