It's been a different summer and fall here at the homestead. Some hunting done and some family things done and some doctoring things done. Now it's time to get the yard work done and be ready for cold weather.

Just can't get all of it done this year like we have in the past. Been picking up leaves and pine needles for the last 3 weeks and still have more to do. Next will be last mowing to shorten the grass for winter. plug the lawn and then run the roller over it and them use the spike aerator and seeder to seed for the winter. Next will be the the garden. Pull the corn stalks and till the garden with the rest of the leaves and grass clippings from cleanup. As soon as it stops raining. Oh well off to the garage to get it started. Have a great day and just be glad we are able to still enjoy this great hobby of ours and be around to see and hear all the posts on the forum that make our days a little better.

Roger.

At least you will get some good seat time in!

Fall is the reason I have removed every tree from my property! No more leaves or pine needles for me.

I figure we are still going to have to hit 2 or 3 more grass cuttings here in ohio. We've had cold, hot cold hot, now warmish and raining.

I am way behind too. We just have to work smarter. That means more tractors. Good Luck, Rick
Sounds like i am in good company with the more is better. I got it to 3 dedicated machines, no implement swaps. Small riding mower is easy to maintain. Now it is on leaf mulch duty, i don't have to rake, just keep chopping. I removed the pines against ticks, no needles/cones around is a bonus.

Then a blower tractor for winter. And a blade & tow tractor, year round duty. Now i just need to get out and change fluids before snow flies... weld a couple things up... replace some bearings... etc

Mowed the lawns for the last time day before yesterday. Cleaned up Little John and drove him into the shop with hardly an ounce of gas to spare. Now he's ready for next year, clean and shiny and ready to roar when the fresh fuel is put in. We had a skiff of snow yesterday but it's gone now, just a warning of what's to come----- hard water fishing, :thumbs:
