Had a blood test this morning. So while I was out, I got gas, did some grocery shopping and stopped past Rural King for somethings to do projects at home. This is the first time in a week since I've left my property. So I should be good for another week. It felt good to get away from the house.There wasn't many other people in the stores this morning

I finally picked up the rest of my hayland fertilizer yesterday and spread it today. It felt like May here today with a temperature in the low 80s.

Mowed the grass for the first time this year, any taller and I would have had to bale it. Pruned and tied the blackberries and cleaned out the dead plants in the asparagas patch

Steve I see you have a couple of BTOs competing for your acreage. I mowed my yard hay yesterday as well. We also planted cabbage and broccoli plants. Some onions, lettuce, and beets are beginning to peek through the soil.

Last night Miss Joanne asked me if it would be a good idea to make a garden seed run before they get gone. We went to a couple of places, one about 20 miles away in a rural area. They had almost everything we needed. We stopped on the way home at an old established place in a fast growing town closer to us and picked up 3 more items. It was good that we went. We saw lots of garden plots from raised beds , to rather large plots in or next to yards. Fairly new homeowners near us who have never had gardens appear to be preparing them. I hope they learn a little about critter control.

This afternoon hopefully I sawed the last of next winter's firewood.

I did my duty as a good world citizen and practiced Social Distancing.
I shined up a set of plows in the meantime.

This 2-1/2 acre field and another 3/4 acre were perfect and plowed really well. Never spun a wheel
I did this field first and took the photo after I was finished a few hours later . It's drying really well.

This one acre field was wet heavy gumbo, and I almost waited after I opened it, but I wanted to get it done.
It sits in a bottom with a creek and feeder branch surrounding two sides. It took as long to plow as the other.
Almost couldn't keep a wheel from spinning. Took this photo just after finishing.

Started off by replacing the Hydraulic filter on the rusty 88. Then went and took a spin around the neighborhood with the Super 88
That hour was the most that tractor ran in 2 yrs. Guess i've been messing with the 880's too much
Went and finished mowing the yard
Then went and changed the hydraulic filter on the 1650
Then i went and took another ride on the newer 88.

Days like these make me glad the state told me to stay home, but still paying!!
