Took little red back to the farm this past week end and stopped by and turned mom and dads garden.







Aint the biggest tractor in the world but sure is fun to work every now and then.

Ol' Branden looks like he'd be at home on Little Red OR on a 100 horse Ford pulling an 8 bottom. Looks like he did a professional job on the garden. Gordon, all you guys musta paid attention to your dad and granddad and it rubbed off good. :cool: :cool:

Gordon,
Very nice pictures of the single bottom turning over that garden soil. Reminds me I need to go get my set of plows soon.
Thanks for taking the time to post these nice pictures. Great looking tractor!
Regards.
Chris

Thanks guys for the comments. Wendell shhh don't mention the bigger tractor Brandons been talking about a 1066 IH for a couple of years and the 2x14's I got won't even make a furrow big enough for the back tires to run in. ;) :) :) :) Your right about the 2x12's caseman I got two sets I've ran across through the years and they'll pull them good. Love plowing in the river bottoms. I liked the pic of the plow turning the ground over seems like I can smell the dirt when I see it. Did I mention out of everything you do on a tractor I like plowing the best and mowing would be next well actually I don't guess theres much of anything I don't like doing on a tractor its the best theropy there is, if a man can get up on a old tractor and hear it fire up and not smile he's past help. :)

What a pretty tractor and it ploughs really well too. I have to scrape off old, old grease to even find paint on mine. I am starting to think I might like one painted up nice but that one looks show room nice. Thanks for the pics, I was looking longingly at my discs and some ground that needs working but the frost is still in. Maybe by May......

Thanks. WE still use little red all the time and really enjoy working him. I hope the weather breaks soon for you all seemed like winter went on forever.

Nice job. It rolled it over nicely. I finally rolled over a little 1/2 garden last week home then Went upstate Pa this past weekend to plow but it was too wet. Took the PHD up and planted about 50 friut trees. Wind howling, didn't make it out the the 30's, snowing at times. Long winter. This year it may go from winter into summer with only a couple of spring day inbetween.

Brandon did a wonderful job plowin' the garden. A smaller tractor is often big enuff to do the job if used properly. I think yall figured that out long ago :!: ;)
