Getting Motivated Again
Yesterday and Today were absolutely perfect days. The humidity is dropping along with the temps, it's been almost chilly at night and no rain. It was finally enough to break me of my forced laziness and get back to work. I started with sharpening the brush hog blade since it looks like I am going to need to cut the hay with it again this year.
Of course as soon as the chickens figured out I was moving stuff around and exposing dirt that had been covered up they all came running to help.
I placed some pallets under the raised mower in case the hydraulics slipped or failed. I wasn't going to but my dad convinced me it might be better to not trust my legs to almost 70 year old hydraulics. When he put it that way I kinda had to agree with him.
I out a nice shiny new edge on those blades let me tell you. I could actually cut the skin on my thumb with the edge a bit without using too much pressure. It should cut through the grass much better now.
Keep Prepping Everyone!!!!!
