Give a Guy a Tractor and...

yes, he will dig!
This is our front 'lawn' at the moment.
Ain't it just a bute?
It will actually be nice.
We are putting in underground sprinklers
and while we're at it,
we might as well level out a few spots.
I say 'we' like I've done anything
but take pictures.
We've been having issues with voles for the past year or two.
This made me think of that movie
where he goes after the mole on the golf course.

It all started...
back here, behind the shop.
'WE' are laying rock and gravel
under the lean-to and
decided to gravel clear back to the fence.
There are plenty of rocks,
and good topsoil is valuable so
it has become quite the operation.
He is referring to this as the 
redneck sifting outfit.
Our poor trailer.
And when it's finished here,
it's off to haul fire wood.
The pile of dirt in the back ground
is 1/2" minus for the garden.
I think it's all getting closer to finished.
The front yard is a mess,
and he has sifted just about everything.
He has been leveling things
out front and getting it 'all pretty.'
Still need to finish trenches
for the sprinkler stages,
but that should go a little quicker than all this.
It's getting there.
Someday - hopefully by spring
I will show you the after shot.

Until next time,
Nimble Fingers and Even Stitches


  1. A sprinkler system would be so nice! My husband just saved up enough for a tractor. He's been using the four wheeler to haul and snow plow around here so this should make it easier once we get the hang of it. Looking forward to your after photos.

  2. You never know what they are going to do when they get on tractors. They start with a small area and it just keeps getting bigger as they go. Those tractors for some are like play toys. I will look forward to seeing your yard in the spring. Have a safe and wonderful Labor day weekend. Hugs and Prayers from you Missouri Friend.

  3. Thanks for joining us at the Creative Home and Garden Hop - hope to see you again this weekend. http://mumtopia.blogspot.co.uk/2013/08/the-creative-home-and-garden-hop-7.html#more
