So here I am in the Catskills with my new old farm and new tractor and no clue what to do to get things to grow!
Actually, I am getting a few clues. The first clue I got is that a shiny new tractor is no good without IMPLEMENTS. And there are lots of them! And they’re not cheap. (How do you guys make money when you need to spend a fortune on all this stuff?) And speaking of stuff, I see so many of them (implements) out and about. What are you doing with all those things? How’d you get them? And most importantly – do you still need them all? Because if they are just laying out getting rusty I can use any you want to get rid of. I have several pastures that have not been tended to in twenty years… (I think I’ll need a bottom plow, tiller, box blade and some sort of rake?) And lots of horse fences to put up. (A post hole digger would be a big help – not to mention posts. Also a round pen and gates – lots of gates.) Of course that’s just for getting things in order. Then there are all those implements for planting and harvesting.
Oh well, first things first. Got to get my stuff on.
So if you got stuff you’re looking to get rid of, even if they need fixing (I may be from the city but I am quite mechanically inclined) let me know what you got and what kind of deal we can work out. (Did I mention I already spent ALL my money on the farm and tractor and my water still isn’t working right.)
I thought farming was supposed to be the simple life?!?!
