    Y'all Been Checkin' Lumber Prices?

    Glue and Biscuits. I like it! With all the flour in the gravy, it sometimes comes close to wallpaper paste. And then there's the old saying my mom loved to use when serving comfort food like sausage gravy and biscuits, "It sticks to your ribs". 😋

    Road base / crusher run has too many fines. Mixing #56 or #57 with road base to fix

    I use a mix with a lot of fines (411), and then top dress with a light coat of #8. That gives a good tight base that repels water and has the clean 8's on top. Best of both in my case.

    Zero Turn Tires

    15 years using AT101 for me too. I also had a set of 22 MAG tires on one of my Grasshoppers. They are a little more aggressive than the Carlisle bar tires, and slightly larger diameter. As someone else said, the bar tires provide much better traction but if care isn't taken they can dig fast...

    Fry the egg in butter, and add a slice of cheese and a few dashes of Tabasco. Breakfast lunch or supper, it's the perfect meal.

    Cover crop Winter Rye, dies after two weks

    We use oats which will grow this time of year too, and they die out mostly with a winter freeze. Rye does really well but it does grow aggressively the following spring, so keep that in mind if you intend to seed with something else then.

    My new pressure washer is haywire. Helllllp

    Water on and wand trigger depressed is what works to relieve pressure. I did have an issue with mine this year though, almost exactly as you described. Water was flowing through wand with trigger pulled, but was a small stream. Nearly ripped my arm off. My son tried till his arm gave out...

    They say reduce, not eliminate dealer stock piles. That will allow dealers to turn product quicker so they might not object.

    Answer me this...

    A few years ago I was in TX on business with several women co-workers. We went out to a steak place one night and when the waiter finished taking all of our orders, he said "you're not from around here are you?". I asked if he knew that due to our "Ohio accents", but he said no it was because...

    Nut Gatherer

    They work great. Make sure you get a quality brand and get the proper size for walnuts. We’ve used them for years to harvest black walnuts. I think the Nut Wizard is the original, or at least a better quality. It is made in the USA too. They have a website with details on sizes and use.

    B29 Overheard

    We drove over to Toledo yesterday to ride bike trails, and had F16's flying over us all morning. Later in the afternoon while sitting outside at home, we heard a distinct engine sound flying overhead so I checked flight radar. B-25J directly over us. Pretty cool day to see and hear both of those.

    Cut Quality

    A belly mower has the advantage since only the tractor's front tires are compressing the grass/weeds before the deck. A mower on the rear of the tractor has a tougher time pulling up the tall stalks after both the small front and larger wide rear tires pack everything down.

    A bicycle or a lawn tractor?

    You'll find that good bike shops have employees who love to ride, and want to help others enjoy their sport/hobby too. They will be active in the community, involved in bike clubs and trail maintenance. Good shops are very helpful and offer assistance well beyond buying a bike.

    Never had pain like this before!!

    "Do corn". :) We say the same thing up here. When we have a wheel barrow heaped full, and I say "we're gonna do corn today", it doesn't bring smiles from my wife or son.

    A bicycle or a lawn tractor?

    Bikes have been, and continue to be, in short supply like may things these days. I've been looking at some of the Trek mountain bikes, which mostly range from $500 - $3000, with some extremes way above that. $900 - $1100 gets you a nice entry level MTB that will last and is serviceable. For...

    Model A Ford.... I keep threatening.....

    We happened to be in New Philadelphia OH a couple weeks ago while the Ford Model T International Club was having a meet. Hundreds of old Fords lined the streets and were driving everywhere around town. Those old cars parked diagonally shoulder to shoulder for blocks! It was surreal since we...

    Fire Pit Idea Needed

    As I understand it, the paver area provides an area to sit close to the pit but that area has the grassy weeds (between pavers). My wife wanted a paver or flagstone area surrounding one of our pits but I talked her out of it. I didn't want to excavate the area for base grit or sand under the...

    Front end blade for a tractor?

    I had an ARPS dozer blade on my Ford 850. It worked pretty decent with hydraulic lift, but I had to change blade angle manually. Even on the 2wd tractor it was very productive. Having a FEL plow on a 4wd tractor now is much better especially for deep snow.

    I've checked several propane companies around me and they no longer sell tanks. My dad just contracted for over 900 gallons at $2.33/gallon. Way up from last year.

    Water-stove vs. Heat pump vs. Propane

    Propane forced air with add on heat pump works well for me. Heat pump serves as AC too.

    Propane Prices

    ^^ That's been my experience, as far as volume and pricing. I use less a little over 300 per year usually, so I get no discounts and pay more than most around me. What was your price?

    We buy bird seed and suet cakes from the big stores. Mostly black oil sunflower, and 100 lbs at a time. We feed year round for the entertainment at the feeders. No changes this year from previous years as far as our feeding patterns. Our bird volume is quite a bit higher this year. Starting...

    Harbor Freight Tools that DO SUCK II

    I have had the 35407 tap and die set for 15 years or so, and it's performed well for me. I really take care when using it though, expecting less than stellar quality and knowing most failures of taps and dies are due to user error. I have to add the O-ring sets to the DO suck list though. I...

    Y'all Been Checkin' Lumber Prices?

    I agree they will at some point lower the price to move the inventory and replace with product at a lower cost. But with so much inventory, it appears they stock piled when prices hit their peak. Ouch!

    Y'all Been Checkin' Lumber Prices?

    I keep checking prices and they haven't budged yet. One item I need is 2"x6"x8' treated, but I'll wait till the price comes down. Unfortunately I checked inventory at the Menards in this area, and they all have 2,000 - 3,500 of those in stock. That's going to take some time to get that sold...

    Bought a Milwaukee weed whacker

    That's what I did. Last Christmas she got a Dewalt weed trimmer and a blower. :) Clean, quiet, and are perfect for medium to light duty chores. The heavier Stihl blower and weed/brush trimmer live in the barn, so these Dewalts are always handy in the garage. She was less than thrilled at...

    Mowing Level (soon to be lawn) with tiller, disc or box blade?

    Till as shallow as you can, and drag between tills to flatten and level the surface. Till, drag, till, drag, etc. The problem with deep tilling or disking is the disturbed soil will continue to settle (unevenly) for a couple years and you'll end up with dips and humps again. A shallow till...

    White pine top broken, why & how?????

    My white pines that are in rows or not protected by a large block of trees get occasional wind damage. Sometimes it's large limbs or branches, but a few times I've lost at least the top third or half of the tree.

    Indiana Songbird Deaths
