Gardens are still wet, but not gooey, and no mud stickin much. But realy still to wet to be in the garden, But I couldn't help myself. Only about 5 degrees celcius, no wind thou. So not to bad off a day. Be plantin potatoes with in a week or two.
What temperature do ya think the ground should be to plant potatoes or other vegtables.

Noel

Thanks again Jim. Love my cultivator.

A little cool yet....here in Ontario, we usually plant seeds, potatoes etc after May 1st.....Bedding plants are usually OK after the last frost. A good week is usually after the May 24 weekend. I usually wait until June 1st to be on the safe side, but have gotten itchy and planted ahead of time, watching for frosty nights and covering them. 

Went to a local farm today and got a load of sheep manure. Hope its not full of weeds.

I was thinkin that today poncho62, the 10 hp has got no problem pullin the cultivator and not reved up that far. What you're sayin about the times to do things and plant is about the same here. Last frost around here is June 10. So they say.
Nice lookin tractor you got. I have a tiller for my LGT 165.

When you start working these air cooled engines you better keep them wound up to keep the air flow going.  You not doing them or yourself any favors by running them half throttle.

As for ground temp for planting, I like it to be up to around 58 - 60° F so the seeds don't lay there in moist ground and rot before they sprout and grow.

chieffan, that's the temperature I was thinking.

I for some reason don't like having things wound up. Unless I have too. But I understand your reasoning.

Not a K series Kohler! Overhead valve engines yes..all the other flathead mills run and cool just fine at any throttle as long as the blower fins and housings are clean..

But few have good clean un-restricted air flow.  I'll  be running mine when your repairing yours.
