I'm envious... I'm still waiting for my grass to start growing.

My retired neighbor decided he had more time on his hands, so asked me to plow him a little garden spot; did that Saturday afternoon. The ground was just dry enough to turn. Glad to get it done before we got 3/4" rain on Sunday!!

Disk it later this week when it's dried out.

Sure is fun. :D

First time I have been able to get the disc in the field yesterday. Still wet and more to come today.

Mowed some clover out by the garden Friday. Woke up three walk behind mowers, the 19" IH, the 8401 Lawn-Boy tribute/clone, and the old "D"series L-B, soon to be IH again. Woke up the Snapper and the Wheel Horse about 2 weeks ago.

Dennis are you crazy, you don't want the grass to start growing! That means lawn mowing. Lol! I cut my grass last weekend and that is a first for March in Massachusetts... :D

Had to replant the beets and two of the three rows of sugar peas. The taters are breaking ground and up to 6" across. Corn is comming up as well as green beans.
