Last Thursday morning we plowed my brothers garden area.

This afternoon my grandson, age 12,  and I ran my little sears disc over it.  I made the first couple passes , then Nicholas took over and my butt never hit the seat again!!!    It was about a 3/4 mile drive and I was informed he would take it himself.  He actually did real good at all the intersections. There was one stop sign and the rest were yield signs. He played it safe at every one. 

 

Next thing I need to put on these G.T.'s are some tri-rib tires.  It was difficult to keep the turfs straight on the plowed ground.

I put 100 ponds of weight on the disc for the first go round. then I removed them and let Nick go over everything again.  He would have done several more passes had I let him.

We found some extra steel that floated to the top.

 

Here are the required pictures.       Rick

Garden looks good enough for winter.  I usually plow mine after the first frost.  Leave it till next spring then put the fertilizer on and till it as we are ready to plant.  Your seat time will be very limited when he is around, you know that don't you?  What better excuse to find another tractor.

Looks like you need to get a GT for him, so that you can have sit time, too.

Looks like fun. For myself I am finding it very hard to pry a young lad off the seat. His idea of sharing a seat doesn't match mine.

I've got other tractors.  Just one disc.

I don't mind sharing, he usually grinning ear to ear!  Rick
