Weather is getting colder by the day here, so figured this may be one of the last days to plow the garden under before it gets too wet.  Also got the blower on the EK10 yesterday

I tried to do that today. But spent all day trying to get my plow set up right with my new hitch. After I got all the bugs worked out it was too late. This is the first time I ever used a plow or the hitch

Looks good Doc. I currently have pigs turned out in the garden, but they are taking a trip to the butchers on Wednesday. It has been raining a lot here lately, but if things dry up enough, I may turn mine under on Sunday

Just curious, how well did that rig work for you? It looks like it did a great job!

It works great!  Put her at 3/4 throttle and it dosent break a sweat.

Everything I use in the setup is stock what would have been available at the time of purchase.

Super cool! Never used a plow before but it looks like it does a good job and it looks fun. I'm hoping to make a small garden next year!

Looks great Doc! I plowed ours the other day, but I couldn't get the thing to dig deep enough and I'm not sure why, I had 'er screwed almost all the way down.

May be the plow is not set right per the manual!

You may also have a worn out plow point.  I had to learn to spot the difference.  Check here for my story and some pictures.  Note that regardless of how I adjusted the plow, it would not plow properly, even with a bit of weight on it.
