The ground dried early this spring. So I decided to spread compost and till the garden, on the grounds that I could then change the tractor implement from the tiller to the York rake to rake up the gravel that the winter spreader had spread all around our front yard.

The little Kubota used 1.5 gallons of diesel to spread a couple tons of compost, till it in, and rake up most of the gravel. I still have a little to rake.

In today's Guardian I read of a two-wheel tractor being used for much the same purpose, but I think that our four-wheel, four-wheel drive Kubota probably uses about the same amount of fuel and does a better and much easier job.

Aimee did a fine job of sticking her tongue out just in time for a snap. I have quite a few pictures of Aimee with her tongue out. maybe I'll make a calendar to send to her folks for Christmas, one for each month.

This is probably the way they always remember her anyway!

Welcome to our Farm Blog.
The purpose of this blog is for Aimee and I to communicate with friends and family, with those of our students, and other folks in general who are interested in homesteading and farming activities.

The earliest posts, at the very end of the blog, tell the story of the Great Farm, our purchase of a fragment of that farm, the renovation of the homestead and its populating with people and animals. Go all the way to the last post in the archive and read backwards from there to get it in chronological order.

After getting tired of spam comments (up to a dozen or more per day), I required commentators to be Google "registered users". You can write me at if you have a serious comment or question and are not a registered user.

Spammers -- don't bother writing -- there's no way I will post your spam to my blog. Just go away.
