I got on the ford yesterday with the box blade with the scarifiers To pop out some jersey potatoes(rocks) and expend the garden. Too many rocks to plow. I'm planning to put the sub-soil on and pop out some more rocks. Last year at this time I was still plowing snow.

My great grandfather farmed about 15 miles from where I live and moved to better land in the early 1900s. My father told me about a field that was so rocky you could walk on stones from fence to fence after it was ploughed without stepping on dirt and without jumping. About 15 yrs ago I saw that field freshly ploughed and they hadn't exaggerated, if anything it was worse. Flat stones the size of two hands and you didn't even have to take large steps to go from stone to stone. I judge all fields I see against that field that was part of that mans livelihood and most of them aren't too bad.

Going to plant corn, taters maybe carrots and ? I put the dirt scoop on the 950 for removing some of the rocks. It beats a wheel barrow anyday.

Some of the girls came over to help me "scratch" out some rocks. Kind of fun to watch. Anytime one of them found a big worm the rest of the gang would chase her around trying to get it away from her.

Smart workin there with the scoop. Definately easier to haul. Bet the girls got their full share of the worms in a garden that size.

Loosing up the sub soil with my ford 10-89 sub soiler on the back of the ford 4000 IND. It did a nice job and also popped some more rocks.

This is a light industrial not an HD. You can see the difference with my 4000 HD model.
