I've always enjoyed technology and certainly people too. Today they meshed like peas and carrots to steal from Forrest.
An aside to my friend Jim Whitehurst:
It's us, we interloping Babins who stole your high-speed low drag, super duper, PTO driven, tiller today. Wow! As the accompanying pictures show, it's turned our freshly turned veggie bed from raw clumps into smoothness reminicient of Mamaw's nanner puddin'.We've only met the Whitehursts a couple of weeks ago, but Jim graciously offered the implement like he'd known us forever.
Credit also goes to another great neighbor, Betsy and Gary Fausnaugh. We stole their 2-bottom. Betsy gave us a dozen.5 of her yard eggs to boot . . . yum yum.
From meeting the charming and very helpful Angela at the FSA (Farm Service Agency) office in Columbia, to showing up unanounced and sitting down with Jason who graciously led us through the NCRS (Natural Resources Conservation Service) process, to checking in with Nick Roy at the Adair County Extension office, to a great breakfast shared with Ed this morning; it was a great local agricultural themed day in our new domain.
As you can see from the accompanying photos the garden is evolving. With hard work and continued help from friends, we look forward to nurturing both.
from the Cool Springs Creek suburb of Gradyville, KY
P.S. I am quite sure Jim Whitehurst's fancy tillin' mo-chine matches my old IH 424 much better than either of his beloved Masseys - just sayin....
