Everything is slowly drying out this week. Some fields are drier than others as we found out yesterday when one of the tractors got mired. Three hours later and Johnny was finally free to continue his field work. He is using our new disc harrow, and even to my untrained eye it looks different than the old one. Of course, it was a lot cleaner and shinier before he starting using it in the muddy fields! In these photos, Johnny is using the implement to break up large clumps of soil and weeds. It’s the first pass over the field to prepare the land for the seed potatoes. To see a video of the disc harrow you can visit “Preparing For Winter.”
