Thought I'd throw some more pictures at you. 

It didn't take long for the three of us to turn the garden spot.   But it was enjoyable seat time. 

Larry's Ford just chugged right along and didn't even notice the plow behind it.       

I had to get  Edy's pink plow dirty.   And try the set-up on the plow and three point I got this summer.       Rick

That really turned over nice.  Won't plow mine till we have had a killing frost.  Got cool a couple nights but not close to frost yet.

Nice looking garden spot.

You guys have much sandier soil than the clay we have in Southern Indiana!

I still have a bag of Kentucky clay from Daniels farm.  It came off of my tractor and plow after I got home from the Ball Hollow Plow Day.

I plan on taking it back to him.  We don't need that stuff up here.  :D     Rick

That looks really nice. I can't imagine having soil like that. Our first year here on the clay farm has been very challenging. This spring I had to disc several times immediately after plowing or I would have had a brick garden. That was some good seat time you all had.

Our clay is just older, more compressed, and harder.
