I like how everybody has to stay out of the woods for fear of getting stuck in the mud. Where I am the woods are the firm part. I need to stay out of the driveway to keep from rutting it up. I was thinking about trying to scrape some of the granular snow off of the driveway, but it's real soft and it would be a chore. I'm hoping it'll dry up relatively quickly, but it usually ends up a sloppy mess.
My woods are high, dry and firm. It is getting to them that is my problem. A steep wet lawn leading to the lowland that is soggy.

Yeah. I guess I'm not quite to that much snow... Maybe a foot to 18". Nothing I can't drive over. Driveway is just slushy mud, though. Or is it muddy slush?

6 hours of mowing in various places on the property.

I have some spots that have become overgrown in Ragweed stalks and Dewberry vines. Rough area and too small to get my larger tractor and Bat-wing into. So the little Kubota is just right for those areas.


But had to rinse the "little tractor that could' off real well afterward. Covered in Dust, Pollen and chaff.

27 yrs. old and still running strong though!

Got my controls mounted behind the cab so I can operate the 3pt arms and my hydraulic top link while standing behind the tractor. Also relocated my rear camera. :)

It’s not magic, just what we have. I have plenty, I can hook you up. It can be interesting to process.
(My company has/is purchasing equipment from a vendor in Milford, CT. I’ve been there a couple times.)
Nice' I’m only a few towns away. No hedge around here, I believe the closest we have to it’s BTU’s firewood wise is Black Locust.

I had a really good day. Pulled some more stumps and move cut trees around before lunch. Then drove 60 miles to look at a rock rake found on market place. It looked like 6' in the pictures' was going to offer $350.
It is 7' and the tines are all there with little wear. I gave him the asking price of $400 and he loaded it up. It needs painted but it is well built. Just have to get more done with the BH before I can try it out.
I priced a new 6' on Saturday at $795. I think I did ok.:rolleyes:

As much as I enjoy using the Kubota for snow removal........I am reaching the end of my joy, which is about right for the end of the season. This past weekends 14" of heavy wet snow on top of my non-frozen gravel driveway was messy to clear. The options were to either leave 2" that would turn the long hill into a frozen luge or scrape a little dirt with the back blade. I did what I could to take as little dirt as possible and let the March sun do the rest.

The good news is I was able to do some storm prep and hit all the zerks on the blower and associated gear......

Looking forward to some Spring clean up with the saw and tractor if things ever melt.......

Going to be a heck of a mud season this year.

Maybe this will get some grass growing. No, not the Dingo. He is a grass murderer. He appears to be guarding the sweet smelling soil from the groundhogs.

Got to play on the bota a little today, most of the ground still pretty wet, did get a small patch tilled up for some strawberries. Got a chance to try out the new garden bedder.

View attachment 96715

notice how muddy the case is 😂 sent son to get a load of mulch, it’s still pretty soggy back there 😂.
Lemme know how the strawberries do. Apparently, they don't bear so well the first year. Well, correcting myself, they put on berries, but seem to rot faster than they ripen. We put some in last year, and hoping to have better luck with 2nd year growth. If not, those things are just wasting space for something else in the raised beds. I've got 'em in some pretty sandy soil with pine mulch mixed in, and put landscaping cloth over that to keep the berries out of the dirt. We'd tried them in a spot in the back yard a few years ago, but those also rotted before we got anything off 'em.

I made about 15 trips with a bucket full of fill for the east side of my bee equipment storage building.
About a 5 minuet round trip with a 400' elevation change. I have lots of small stone down there just have to cut a drive in this summer. Then I will recoat the 1/2 mile drive with it.
I got the tractor new beginning of December and it turned over 60 hrs. today.

Nice!
You obviously bought it new, and have kept it stored inside!

Neighbor lost a couple trees next to the property line which took out a large sweetgum on my side. His was a short leaf pine and a maple that uprooted because of the soggy winter we had. I cut the sweetgum up a couple weeks ago, but didn’t get it picked up. Cut the pine and maple today and piled all the brush for chipping. The gum I just cut into short logs (about 6 ft), but I got 3 fair size saw logs outta the pine. I cut the maple enough to push back to his side of the line. Did quite a bit of grapple work and pulled on 3 inch stump.
Still have a couple small oaks and another fair size short leaf pine to get down off my trees. Told him I’d put ‘em on the ground, but I’m taking the logs. Should have a bit of rough lumber sometime this summer if I can find a local sawyer.
I was pretty impressed at how big a log my little LX could lift and move.

He'll learn to love running that tractor more than he does video games. The more he's outside, the fewer problems he'll have. He'll learn to pay attention when you tell him how to do something too. Learning how to learn is probably the hardest thing there is to learn.
