I've worked a lot these last two weeks and Saturday was the first real day I had off so when it rained I was a bit bummed. But it turns out there was a silver lining... it didn't rain hard enough to make things muddy and messy, instead it was just drizzly enough to dampen the ground to be worked Sunday. So when I got back from brunch with the girls I fired up the tractor and headed out to the pasture to try to reclaim my track.
As you can see it was in need of rescuing!
Today was the perfect day to get out there. The grass & weeds didn't have too good of a hold yet and the ground was soft but not sloppy from that light, steady rain.
The horses are currently turned out in this pasture. As you can see they were terrified of the tractor lol There's actually two horses in this mirror pic. Tavi (sorrel) is easy to see but Odin (grullo) pretty much blends into the background. Those two, Lefta & George followed me around for a good while.
(it takes two passes of our little tractor to work the track. It's about 12-14' wide and our cultivator is only about 6')
Next time I'll hook up some harrows. I don't want to cultivate it too much, otherwise it will get too deep. The footing isn't perfect but it is usable and I have a hunch that once it's harrowed it will be pretty darn good.
So its time to fess up and tell y'all WHY I've been pretty much MIA lately... Pie and I are trying to sell our house. Yup, we'v...
