Gordon finally tried out the new tractor tis weekend. And read the manual!
He had turned it off while working on moving some dirt. Sophie figured she'd come walk under the thing while I was taking a photo. Fortunately the hydraulics didn't fail at that point! :)
I read that manual too. Doesn't really do much to tell a city slicker how to drive a tractor, but we're getting the hang of it. I got a little instruction last week from my 22-year-old friend Jake. :)
Seat belt on, roll bar in place. I am dying to try out the tiller.
Tristan loves to lie down next to and behind the tires, so we always clear the dogs out before we start moving.
Gordon got several loads of garden soil moved!
Riding off into the fields!
Hope you all had a great weekend.
I'm considering driving up so I can have a go!ReplyDelete
Next year you'll wonder how you ever did without your tractor. It looks like you got all, the bells and whistles. Have fun.ReplyDelete
Isn't it beautiful. It will never be that pristine again but then it is meant to be a working in the dirt machine. Machines really do make life easier. I want to see more pictures of it actually doing its jobs.ReplyDelete
Love the new toys. I thought you would say he was driving off into the sunset ;-)ReplyDelete
That sure looks like lots of fun!ReplyDelete
I'm jealous. I doubt I could see over the hood.ReplyDelete
Nice photos! Have a delicious week.ReplyDelete
That tractor looks awesome! I know absolutely nothing about tractors, so I'd definitely have to read the user manual!ReplyDelete
This looks like so much fun!ReplyDelete
And, although I usually don't approve of mixing reds with reds (or oranges with oranges)... too risky, Gordon's sweatshirt/T-shirt ensemble seem to go very well with the tractor. (I'm sure he was worried about that, so I thought I'd let him know.)
You all look right at home on your tractor--real farmers!!ReplyDelete
Nice power equipment there! Maybe I wouldn't have given up big time veggie gardening if I had had that mean red machine!ReplyDelete
That is one fancy tractor. That is so terrific. isn't it fun to have a tractor. Take care.ReplyDelete
Like Joanne, I am jealous, especially after spending an afternoon carting soil in a wheelbarrow! It will save you a lot of work.ReplyDelete
