I am not mechanical. Every time I got on a tractor, I had to figure out how it worked. I was fortunate in that we were using fairly old equipment when I was doing the harvesting. I worked out how to fix shear pins on both the baler and the chopper. Another skill become obsolete.

Another cloudy day, but with any luck the rain will keep vanishing into the dryer air that we are enjoying and I'll be able to get the peas planted. My girl and I got the sticks picked up (girl), the cranberries and grape vine in the ground (girl) and some rocks in the pathway uncovered. Even found a few that had been covered with grass so long I'd forgotten they were there.

The heifers discovered the open gate to the field Stan was spreading on in preparation for seeding down and they have been going through the entire piece picking out the grass that missed a manure bath. They can be so delicate in their eating habits, and besides that, they think they are getting away with something!
