That bottom really shined up. I suggest you get some plowcoat or even some spray-on wax to keep it that way without having to use paint.

Yup... I'm rather pleased at how well the field polished them up (all those sandstone rocks in the fields have some use after all :) ) Weather looks good for the day, so looks like today will be round two of plowing. One more cup of coffee and then out to the fields to finish the job.

After this is done I plan on polishing and waxing the plows before putting them in storage for the year.

And now the harrow... I need to use it today, so the paint will have to wait. Fresh grease, all of the bolts tightened down, and new hair-pins to replace the rusted away one.

Sod will do that to you. Next year you can plow it all in 2nd gear. Great job!
