The Bag Lady told you the other day, didn't she, that she was planning on doing some crafts in order to have something to put on her table at the craft sale the first part of November? Well, you know what they say about the best laid plans of mice and (wo)men....
In actuality, she has had to postpone those plans for a few days. The Rancher needed her help over at their summer pasture, where he has been trying to fix the mess the loggers left. Yesterday, he was finally at the seeding stage. This is a tiny portion of what needs to be seeded:
Here is the Rancher with his new seeder hooked onto his old tractor. The tractor originally belonged to his father, and is probably close to qualifying as an antique, but it still runs like a top!
The ground is still rather rough for that little seeder, so the Rancher devised a float for the Bag Lady to drag behind the other tractor to help smooth out some of the rough spots. Here is a little video clip of the Rancher preparing a "float":
Step one: cut down a tree.....
Unfortunately, the Bag Lady was so busy helping him after step one that she didn't have time to take any more photos. They chained some big logs together, hooked the logs behind the tractor, and the Bag Lady drove around and around and around the field, dragging the logs behind the tractor.
The Bag Lady will be doing this again today. The Rancher had to go to work today, so the Bag Lady will be alone, dragging logs around. She has to remember not to turn too sharply so she doesn't catch the chain between the dual wheels on the tractor and flip the logs up into the cab of the tractor.......that might hurt.
Have a good weekend!
