Well I have been itching to use my new unit, but haven't got many things that need to be done yet. The grass is just starting to grow, so there I was, trying to think of something I could do /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif...............then suddenly it dawned on me /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif the potatoes we never finished digging last year in the garden!!! Next thing I knew, the wife, kids and myself are out workin the garden plot diggin potatoes with the FEL..........what a great way to do it!!!! And it appears some of the potatoes look like there actually ok. Of course we will know better when we actually try them.

So here's one of the pictures the wife took. And yeah that is me trying not to smile /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

Congrats on the new addition to your family! You'll find many uses for your tractor. Your wheel barrel is now obsolete!! By the way, that is some beautiful soil you have there. How did the potatoes turn out? I would think they would freeze during the winter.

I suspect the potatoes froze also, but the wife thinks they will be ok. We did find some rotten ones, and tossed those. We probably won't eat any for a few days, but I'm sure we'll know soon enough as we are potatoe lovers!!!!

Funny thing about my soil, is that it seems to grow rocks the best! We continue to remove them every year, but they continue to be more and more. I really wish they would quit growing...LOL.

I think that would be a pretty safe bet.
