The weather is warming up here in my area and the weeds are growing like crazy. If they can grow its time to plant more veggies. The rows are planted from north to south, here are some before and after pictures. I am not a mechanic and before I could till I had to start the tillers. I have a rear end and front end tiller, well after pulling the ropes to start again and again they both broke. So in the first pic you can make out my little tractor the back-hoe comes off and I can mount a tiller on it. So I took down part of the fence and drove it in, so much easier, less physical effort and a time saver. I need to find a class on small engine repair.

wish it was my zone, we didn’t even get out of the sub zero range yesterday, and then on top of that we had a 30-35 mph. wind…C’mon spring.

we are having the best winter we have had in years! It’s like a real winter!! We’ve still gotten the breaks in between storms where our weather turns to spring (which probably isn’t healthy for the plants) but at least we’ve had some good old-fashioned Canadian winter weather!! Woo hoo.

Nice Ranch and I see “warm”, I see “sunlight”, I see what I love, plants and warm.

I look outside here and see a sunami of snow, even the big fir trees and spruce trees are white.

I best go out and plough snow again!

Re Tillers broke…try a can of starter fluid from an auto parts store.
remove air cleaner and spray a short blast into carb.
it will probably start, run engine to warm up then change all the fuel
with new gas. use a turkey baster to suck the old stuff out. You can
add what you remove to your car. Once you have them running and
with fresh fuel they will probably start OK with out starter fluid.
I always add Stabil a fuel additive available at auto parts stores year round
to all my lawn equipment fuel. Even if you run the system dry for storing
the Stabil additive will usually make a restart after storage happen.
