Preparing the Field

Post by Forerunner on Tue Jan 19, 2010 8:11 pm

For the visually stimulated, I offer another round of organic inspiration.

Here we are, this last spring, fixing to prepare a field for oats.
Proper equipment sure speeds up the job.
A rich product makes the effort worth while.

I'm sure going to miss that spreader.

There's nothing so gratifying as a field laid in with compost.
I started with sandy clay on this plot, not so very long ago.

One of the most labor saving devices ever invented was the disc.
You can put a thousand men with hoes in the field with the turn of a key.
I don't take that for granted.

A good harrow sure makes a nice job of finishing. Brings up all the bones, rocks and sticks for the trash pickers, too.....

Planting was always a real treat with my old 8 foot model B John Deere drill and Dad's model A popper.

I lost both in the fire.

Paradise must consist largely of varying shades of green.
