    Default For Many Years I gardened with a Shovel, But?

    I still have the shovels, but no longer have the physical capacity to move the dirt with a wheelbarrow and spade. So this winter I will be buying a Mahindra Max 28. I plan to purchase it with all the goodies, backhoe, front end loader, finish mower, cement mixer, tiller, box blade, and possibly a PTO generator.

    When I was much, much younger I had occasion to play with an old and little Ford tractor. Mostly I pulled a rake with it turning two hay wind rows into one for bailing.

    One of the projects I plan to attempt is to dig a pond where I may try to grow cat fish or Tilapia. I also plan to have a garden between 500 and a thousand square feet. I will be growing Brazos Blackberries plus couple of fig trees and any other fruit trees that will grow and fruit in South Texas near Houston. Although we only have a single acre, I hope to fix it up into a garden spot.

    I also have a grandson who seems lost as to a career and I thought he might learn how to use this little tractor and do some landscaping as the area our place is located in is all one acre plus homesteads, and many may need help with making their places look nice.

    Welcome from Oklahoma. Just a word of caution, before you turn the kid out out to start landscapping check into insurance.
