    Despite living on 13 acres of land for the past 10 years, 2021 will be the first year I finally have enough open space to put in a proper garden, which will get proper sun everyday.

    Fix it or leave it alone?

    I done something stupid this weekend folks. I was using my disc harrow, and elected not to put a bucket or anything on the front of the tractor just to have a little extra more turning room. Everything went well, until I got off the tractor after parking it. I happen to look down and notice I...

    Emergency new (metal) roof for the house

    So my holidays had a bit of a damper in 2019. We knew we were going to need a new roof, or some patch work done in the next year or two, but wasn't expecting to have to do it so soon. one or two small drip leaks had started middle of 2019 and I had patched the roof up with some roofing cement...

    Inner Air Filter L2501

    I learned recently that the L2501 does not have the inner air filter that many of the other Kubota models have. I think this also goes for the L3301 and 3901 as well. I read that some folks had ordered it and installed it on their L, so I decided to do the same. It should be on my porch when I...
