October 2010

One of our tractors developed a leak in a coolant line.

To remove the line I had to take the sheet metal of the tractor.

To fix it I brazed over the area that was leaking.

The coolant line reinstalled and ready for a test drive. No leaks yet!

We are pouring a slab for our all season pig drinker.

The drinker won't freeze. This means we won't have to haul water when its -20 degrees out.

The last farmers market was the second week of October. Market starts again the first week of June.

One way to make a moldboard plow last longer is to weld old shares or moldboards to the parts that are wearing out. I patched our plow up to get it through the season, some places were starting to wear paper thin.

Our oyster mushrooms have started fruiting.
