    I was able to beat the rain and finish the mowing today. It has been only a week since I started it, but already the part I cut then is almost as tall as what I'm cutting today. I did go ahead and cut right in front of the house again. If this rain keeps on, it is going to need it once a week until fall.

    I bought my RFM used a couple of weeks ago, and it had dried mud under it when I got it. MY BIL has my pressure washer and the garden hose wouldn't get all of it off. {last week I was cutting in the rain anyway} I picked up a burger flipper for 50 cent at a thrift store to use as a scraper. It has a sharp edge on it, and worked pretty good. I scraped it dry. The last time I was under there with the hose I got too much muddy water in my eyes.

    The last time I mowed was Saturday. I mowed today. Some of needs gone over again. I can't mow every 2 or 3 days though.

    In a regular rainfall year, the grass on my sandy land grows slow. I will mow right in front of the house every two or three weeks, and do the field every four or five weeks. But this has not been a regular year. We had another thunderstorm late this afternoon.

    When we built the house, there were deep ruts in front. We brought in two loads of topsoil to smooth it out. That dirt is like fertilizer compared to the rest of my sand hill. I mow it with my 6' RFM, then do the trim work with my husqvarna rider and string trimmer. It takes about twenty minutes on the 3930, ten on the rider and ten with the trimmer. But four days later the stems are shooting up on the bahiagrass. I ask the wife if she was alright with me just cutting trails to the garden and the sheds. I won't tell you what she said.

    Monday and Wed. I was doing some horse paddocks. Got in about 3 hours total with a sheared bolt on the 3pt hitch on the rotary mower causing a one
    day delay in finishing. Going to try the MF41 sickle bar I got at auction to do along the creek that runs thru the paddocks. That is for Tomorrow....
    I hope. Weather permitting....

    Today I started trimming the hedges around the property. Cutting the branches with the tractor mounted hydraulic trimmer, picking them up with the grapple on the minidigger, driving them to the burning place ... Will be doing that for a number of days.

    There is nothing better than getting to work with your dad. Enjoy it. Are you going to have the logs cut into lumber?
