    Little slower than expected but were about half planted now. Plants have taken a beating from the wind were have the last couple of days. The raised beds seem to we doing well. At 8" deep there 80 degrees. Granted I also have black fabric on top to reduce weeding and to help warm the soil. So its going well. If the weather hold we should be done hopefully by Saturday. Still lots of compost to move though.

    Got up early to beat the heat. Loaded the tractor bucket with dirt and then things turned worse. As I moved the tractor I could feel a popping kind of a catch seemed to be from the middle toward the front end. Limped into the garage. Got under it and could find nothing. I believe I have a front axle problem maybe its just a u joint catching but its hard to do a diagnosis when on the tractor. Looks like its going to John Deere oh God thats going to be expensive. Looks lie tomatoes with cost me $10 a piece this year! lol

    Sorry to hear about the tractor Bronc.

    I have been studying up on tractors because I need to buy one in the next year or so. Many folks have told me to stay away from Deere because they are expensive to fix and prone to breakdowns. Is that your experience too?

    Absolutely not! I wouldn't buy anything else! The only thing I have done is regular oil & grease and 2 batteries in 13 years. Over 800 hours and it has done more than most sub compacts could ever think of doing. I figure it has something to do with all the compost I have been moving lately. Around 30 ton of horse manure compost. Only thing is I if you need a mower deck get the drive on one. My didn't have the option at the time. I think it was only available the next size up. If I knew I was moving where I did after the purchase I would have bought the next size bigger.

    Thanks for the info! I may have some more questions as the time to purchase gets closer.

    Planted cabbage, lettuce, chives onions and turnips as soon as the ground didn't freeze. Already harvested several pounds of greens and turned it into Kimchi. Onions and chves just don't know when to stop growing. squash and cukes are coming up but we don't expect much from them

    My old tractor is a very old Ford. I am thinking of upgrading, due to it's increasing maintenance cost. (I have to fix something every time I want to use it.) I am looking at Kubotas. They have a very good reputation around here.

    We took a look at several different brands before deciding on the Deere. We didn't just look at the tractor we looked at the dealership size, location and the people at the dealership. To this day 13 years later I still ask them questions and we now live 500 miles from the dealership!
