What is keeping everyone busy? This forum has been slower than church attendance for a week or so.

Seems to go up and down. I've been really hitting the projects hard to try and get above water.

Cold and no snow so the tractor is just sitting in the shed.  I did have to poke my head in there for a minute last week and it looked cold and lonely.

 

Supposed to get some snow tonight so maybe the tractor will come out.

I think this time of year is shut down time for alot of us, too cold to work out side , too wet to go outside with a GT and if theres no snow we dont have anything to do. Plus hard to get motivated when its 30* and mostly cloudy everyday, here in gloomy WNY we wont see the sun till April LOL

I'm constantly hunting for parts or working on bits and pieces for projects. Took a two hour drive to pick up a needed Wisconsin AEH engine, and ended up hauling three engines home.

Moving snow, reading seed catalogues and planning the garden, and oh yeah, two of my sheep decided that last night was THE NIGHT! One had twins and the other a singleton. Fortunately I was one step ahead of them and had them safely in the barn with a nice fluffy straw bed. Never boring around here, lol.

I just haven't done much GT work this season!

 

Busy at the farm today with the 790 to pile some timber thinnings I've been cutting for the last few weeks.  One day per week is about all I can handle of this kind of work anymore! 

 

These three pics are from nearly the same spot:  Farm 2016 078.JPG  Farm 2016 079.JPG  Farm 2017 002.JPG

I prefer fairly loose piles for wildlife benefit. Farm 2017 004.JPG  Farm 2017 006.JPG
