    Looks great.....but I've got to ask, don't you have a bush hog for your tractor? I use the hell out of mine.

    Yes ,yes we do but I hate switching equipment and I need the disc on now as well. I actually like the work out, though the knee I tore up my ACL is acting up a bit. The incline on field I only partially, is a bit steeper than you'd think and the drag from the falling rye is "real".
    Our tractor has a backhoe, york rake, bush hog, disc, and tines.

    So got it done save a tiny area around the goat barn. Eeggadddsss. The red clover was literally 3 ft tall! I went to lunch came back to finish and kicked two fawn out of it. I then weighted the drag and dragged it a few times. Then walked my brassica mix and Alice , lidino, and red over it all. Went to leave in Gator looked over and there is a rabbit's
    eating 5ft from me. I had just shut Gator a couple of minutes before..lol.
    Soaking in tub( knees on fire ) when all goes dark..ha pouring out. Timing!

    I went and bought some winter peas, purple top turnip seed, and 100lbs of winter wheat and 100lbs of soybean seed today. They tear the soybeans up here....about 2-3 more weeks and I get it in the ground.

    I agree, I hate switching implements lol. They best thing I ever bought was the Pat's quick hitch though. Sure makes it easier.

    Ya I've been putting in the new plots early due to needing to alert them to a new food source and hoping to change a travel pattern. Besides I never know what tomorrow might bring as far as weather , or old injuries, like my knees. I prefer to be out the woods way before the Oct 1 opener and have more shooting time than work in those late summer weeks. Best to you this season

    While waiting for bees to calm down, I got cat house off the porch, took a walk. Here are those 2 plots so far. Pretty fast growth I think, though birds are thinning it, lots of blades pulled and left.
