Spring is Finally Here

Here my first post for this year. I apparently didn't do a very good job keep in blog updated last garden season since my last entry was July. I'll do better this year. I promise . . . really! Sad to report no garden related projects done this past winter. But the kitchen remodel is nearly done. My other half is happy about that.

Moving on. I have some seedling growing on the kitchen table. Not sure how my other half feels about that. I've got to find time this week to get them transplanted in larger pots, and moved under the grow light. They are reaching for the light, and are taller than they should be already. Picked up potato seed (Norland Red, Yukon Gold, and Burbank Russets) last week along with yellow onion sets. The family potato patch has become a tradition. It's hard but, fun work. And in my opinion quality family time.

Here we have yet another project. This Farmall model A tractor was passed my way. It's number 10,743 of 117,000 plus built between 1939 and 1947, this one being built in early '45. It will need engine work to run, but is complete, and has non-factory hydraulics and 3 point hitch.
