We got a 1 1/2" rain Friday 1st one in a while its going to help
I Put the box blade on my ford and did some leveling on my plot to make it flatter so it will hold the water a little longer

delbert, wish I had your equipment in PA and the time to get-er-done. I hope to make it there next month and try to do something in the two plots??? Maybe just mow the weeds down and see what's underneath it all. Need firewood for the sauna too. Seems that nobody else likes to cut sauna wood!

I cut 2ft off my Grave yard plot
I gave my Elders all the space and respect to make it happen
Cost is 80$ fuel 75$ lime 100$ Trace minerals 40$ seed
I planted just under a 1/2 ac with Biologic Sudden Impact den Impact
Should last 4 to 5 years

Looks good I wish I could turn some dirt, it is so dry here that I would have to chisel the dirt.

If your to busy to go hunting, your just to busy.
