I've been giving the tractor a workout or I should say it's been giving me one. I should have bought one 30 years ago. One of my friends commented "With a tractor that big you need to buy more land. How big a garden are you going plant for Linda?" To the first comment I answer NO (preceding adjectives deleted). To the question about the garden I responded that I did look at a pto rototiller for the tractor and it can be mine for only $2600.00. Ouch. Seems like a lot of money just to feed the deer.
I would like to put in a garden but 'sequences' will probably render it impractical if not impossible. The 'sequences' would include (in part) having Linda pick a spot for the garden which will certainly not be where I would want it. Then I need a plow to break up the red clay, a rototiller to till the soil, a landscape rake to get all the rocks and stuff out, a load or ten of good dirt, a loader to spread the dirt, till again, a box blade to flatten everything, a post hole digger to put up the fence, an excavator to run the power and water and finally something to spread fertilizer. I almost forgot, a new rifle to shoot the damn deer which I then have to process starting entirely new sequences. Sequences are fully explained in Pat McManus's book The night the bear ate goombaw. I dare you to read any of his books and not laugh.
I have two photos today. The first is of a dead tree which was in the perfect spot to be lit up by the sun with the dark forest behind it. The second photo I just like. Can you spot the person in the photo.
