The Little Tractor that Could......

Recommended Posts

This the Little Tractor that Could.......... Here is the Putt Putt with the 46" plow mounted and the moldboard plow all shined up from use. The rock towing chain is on the ground between them.

Yesterday's project was to build the stone wall along this side of the garden. Everything from the blue chair down is what I got done. The two T post stakes show roughly where the original garden was.

This one stopped a little bit farther downhill than I wanted, but when a rock that big decides where it wants to go, you let it...... I made a small "Pocket Bed" just to the left of the big rock. And yes, I moved all these rocks by hand too. The only thing better than a 5' pry bar is a 6' pry bar......

The big ones being too far downhill threw my line way off. I'll have to go back and fix that later. Right now I need to get the garden plantable.

Here's the other end of the original garden. Look closely and you'll see the marker post diagonal to the near corner is lined up with the neighbor's basketball backboard.

The dreaded New England stone pile.... What's the best way to move one besided picking them up by hand and loading them into the dump cart?

Just hook up the JBJr. and go to it.......

I tried the scarifiers on the Johnny Box to loosen the stones, but nothing works as well as the moldboard plow for yanking these babies out of the soil. More stone walls, anyone???

Here the tow chain is put to use. You'd be surprised how big a rock this little tractor will move.

After several more passes with the moldboard plow, I'm ready to clear the stones and flatten the whole mess out. Hey Rob, you done with the York rake????????? I could REALLY use it about now!!!
