I think it’s going to be a great year for gardening. My garden is ploughed and soil temps are already up to 12C in my area under grass. A light rain is forecast for tomorrow with no frost forecast for two weeks. I should start planting next week.

Now, if only the new rotary tiller works I have it ready to assemble. I’m just waiting for some additional manpower. I’ve already exposed the PTO and figured out how the thing couples to the tractor. It’s just a matter of lifting it into place and bolting it on. Unlike most tractors, this one opens its transmission, gears and all, to the transmission of the rotary tiller, so alignment pins had to be removed and the gears put into neutral to make meshing easy. The tiller is nearly 1m wide so it will make short work of my garden and edging.

    A bit of global warming perhaps? The weather in Australia has certainly been
    “unusual” to say the least.
