Garden had dried out enough till a strip up to get some things planted before the rains this evening. Got the 1256 with the rear mounted tiller out, fired the tiller up and made about 5 passes about 30 ft long. Ground was fall plowed and disc earlier this year so tilled easy. 1/2 lap on each pass but only took about 10 min and was done. Nice to have the bigger equipment but buy does it raise havoc with the seat time. Was just getting settled in good when I was headed to the shed.
