Not a lot of time for chit chat this week. “Whew you say”? Tsk tsk.
If you can believe it, we are still trying to get all the tomatoes in the ground. Yes, I am aware we have about 8 or 9 weeks before the first frost. But the first frost doesn’t actually kill the plants, it just scares them. It’s the second frost that does them in. And besides, I have frost blankets. Dream on I say and stay positive at all times.
The new tractor is a dream apparently. I have no intention of working it but we are enjoying the help it’s providing for all of us. The old tractor is for sale. I’ll remind you of the details. It’s been good to us for four years, we just need one that can do more now.
1952 Massey Harris Pony tractor: has PTO, belt pulley, hydraulics, one-furrow hydraulic plow, hydraulic disc set, extra set of turf tires, new front tires, new carburetor and inline fuel filter and a 5’ Woods hydraulic lift belly 3-blade lawn mower; just had fuel line and condenser replaced, points cleaned, valves freed up, ignition coil, spark plugs and spark plug wires replaced, transmission/differential oil replaced, engine oil changed, has been pressure washed – it’s in pretty good shape – It works - all for $3,000.00
