Scratchings in the Dirt


Derek spent yesterday on his new tractor- He mowed the whole yard

We got another new (used) tractor- We have about 70 hours on it this spring and it runs like a charm so far. The old tractor is 33 years old this year and has done well. We have seeded about 300 acres of green peas before being stopped by 1/2′ of rain. We have been working around the yard and should be back at it by Monday. Forecast is for sunny and plus 20 for the next five days.

  1. The photo of Derek brings back soooo many memories. Let’s hope the novelty doesn’t wear off too soon. You could always get a wagon to pull behind it.I’m sure you’ve told him about how d ifficult it was using the ‘push’ mower.

    Good luck with seeding/cutting!!

  2. I’m pretty sure Clem meant 1/2″ (inch), not 1/2′(foot) of rain!

    Adam and Stephen are out painting the deck this morning. I am watching Canada play at the World Hockey tourney in Moscow – just saw sister Lisa on TV. She’s looking good as ever. Adam thought she had a beer in her hand? Couldn’t be. Must have been her camera.

  3. Wow! What a tractor! Great color too! Talk about farming in luxury! Derek is such a responsible young man!
    keep the pictures coming!
