This time around I need to learn to set the thing up to work together and a small plot is no way to learn.

We got another 3&1/2" last night! There was a pond on the South end of the garden that has pretty much receded now. Should be plenty of moister to get new seeding to germinate and won't have to water the sod for awhile! Going to work on indoor stuff for awhile now. No point in making a bunch of ruts.

Left the key on my 180 diesel in the on position.  Ran the battery down. Put it on the charger this morning.

Had a mostly Orange weekend. Saturday, dumped some gas in WD Micha and headed back over to the neighbors to reseed his waterways I did back in April. They were looking good, until, the coop sprayed the corn in 25 mph wind. Wow, they smoked them s.o.b's. They used to spray for me but no longer, new guy seems to be doing a good job.

After returning home I did some work on the North drive with the 856 and big-ox blade. That was the non-Orange part. It also went for a tractor ride later on. Once I got that hard packed clay scraped off, got CA-2 out and drug the harrow section around. That thing really worked great for that, probably used less fuel than the 45 would have too.

Sunday, seeded some grass on the North side of that drive where Dan got the clay for the building pad. Drill is staying on that WD until the building is done and I can reseed the rest of the yard. More harrowing with CA-2. Then loader work with the 6080.  Had some stumps ground back in February, dug the chips and dirt out and moved to the burn pile. Well, got one done and two partial scoops out of the other. Filled the hole with black dirt Dan saved me from the pad. Got some seed on it between showers but it just cut loose before I could rake it in. Guess we'll see how that goes!

My accountant and I have been clearing an area for a larger garden and we've been dismantling an old mobile home on the property. The 170 moved some small items such as an All Crop drill and a sprayer. After that we hooked up a new to us 190XT to brush mow the area

The 200 was called in to pull some small trees and relocate the MH frame to another spot for cutting up.

190XT back in action with the spring tooth harrow to work over the sweet corn patch. The 170 will pull the JD 494 we got from 200Tom tomorrow hopefully

Took the wd45 out with the 2 bottom disk plow i got from farmer zzz . Plow seemed to work pretty well, need to adjust one of the scrapers. Tractor struggled with traction which surprised me. Both rear tires are brand new and loaded with beet juice. Guess i am going to add some weight to the land wheel

Saturday, 5-4, changed starters in the NF 45. Old one shot craps the Sunday before. Changed it then to one that was 'on the shelf'. Had another one that was on the shelf too that was dead. Out of curiosity I called Ankeny auto electric to see how much longer they were going to be open. Today and one more was the answer, rats! He asked what I needed? Explained the situation, bring them up, we'll get them done.

That changed the course of my day but I happily hauled two starters and an alternator there. Alternator checked good and we talked about the 6-12 volt thing. They set both up for 12 volts. Thought I might as well put a correct one in the tractor, they were taking up space on the bench I needed to do some brake work on a Farmall, easy way to make space! The other will go in the WF 45 as soon as it gets close to the shop.

I just started using this shop a couple months ago, really sucks they are retiring. They sold to some younger guys that are moving it to Slater. That will add about 40 miles to the journey. Probably give them a try sometime in the future. 

The old hindsight thing. Had I found out about these guys a year earlier, they would have gone through every starter and alternator I own!

I've moved four row heads like that but never a six. Hauled one of those heads about 7 miles to the junkyard.

Gave the 3pts a workout today on the 170 and 7040 moving things around. We want to expand the garden a bit and these were in the way


Had to brake steer the big one

Saturday, 4-27 I took the NF 45 on a tractor ride out of Liberty Center Ia. First time that girl has gotten picked. It was the easiest one on short notice. Preformed admirably! Have I ever mentioned to you guys how much I love that tractor?

There were only 10 riders. One other Allis, a nicely restored D-19 gas. Two Fords, four Farmalls, a Minnie, and one lone deere.

Beautiful country down in Lucas Co. WE drove several miles of 'Minimum maintenance', aka, dirt roads that were marginally dry.

At any rate it was a fun day!

Your furrow is really straight! Must be doing something right. A lot of plows sitting out here, I run a wire brush on a 4" grinder over them then a flap wheel. That speeds the scouring. Anything that gets that much elbow grease I try really hard to keep inside after that!

Made it over to the neighbors with the WD and Drill. He had a bit more to do than I expected! Went through 4 bags of oats and 2 bags of grass. His son was flagging where I seeded and having a hard time keeping up!

7040 and 4 bottom plow. Turned over an acre of sod.



Go easy on me. This plow has not been used in 10 years and sits outside. The grease washed away so the sod didn't slide as well as it should and didn't shine up much but its done. With no guidance I adjusted as seemed appropriate.

Graded my driveway with the blade. Fixed the entrances where the county dug nice ruts when they did the road, and added a better drainage pitch and smoothed the rest of the run. It was a blast.

Going to throw the All-Crop Drill on WD Micha today. Buddy of mine has some waterways that need seeded, going to do that Saturday or Sunday. I love running that little drill! Not sure if I have any that need done this year or not? Need to get out and have a look.

Took the bale spear off the 180 and put the bucket on. Brought up 14 buckets full of compost and put on the garden. Hadn't done this for two years and it needed it.

I hope to make the NF 45 here more useful as well now that I have it running again. One item is returning the snap coupler hitch to the New Idea rake and use it as I did growing up

Yup, and it's still roaring! Used the NF 45 to pull the 450 out of the shed and turn it around. Then put the weight bracket on, (the 450) and picked up the front end with the 6080 and pushed it in the shed. My 450 project hit a snag and it had everything blocked in the shed. In need of a good cylinder head for it currently.

There would be a lot less joy here at the farm without that NF 45! So handy. About 90% of the time when things need to get shuffled around, it gets the call.

Got the #17 loader mounted today, moved some dirt around the yard. Works awsome. Talk about a trip down memory lane. We had a #17 loader just like this on this tractor when I was growing up.

No idea what brand that spring-tooth is but see your accountant making a cameo in the picture.

I disced the garden with the NF 45 and did a bunch of loader work with the 6080. The dirt in the garden is REALLY mellow! Was going over the spools on the disc. Even planted some radishes and turnips.

Have a few areas in the pasture that need reseeding due to stump pulling and heavy cattle traffic. Used the 7045 to work these areas with a smaller disc then a 3pt spring tooth harrow


As an aside, does anyone know what brand/model this is? Its orange but no markings I can find
