My lawn mower is a push mower...the only engine to it is me. My weed wacker is electric.

Can't say as I need help in this area as I have avoided it like the plague! lol

Wow, some body posted somethin I gotta stay more alert....................

Yes this new gas, small amounts of it will destabilize very quickly and the ideas is to remove the old gas from the carb and replace it with fresh so the darn things will start easier.........................

Wait, whoa, hold on a sec. You mean we aren't just supposed to park them in the back of the garage/barn and go buy new ones when they quit working.

Oh man, I'll never be a homesteader at this rate will I. LOL

OK, we've done gone and taken care of all the broken equipment in the garage. Of course, with my fixit plan we'll have to buy some new things next spring. LOL! The push mower and the riding mower were hauled away by the scrap guy up the road. The tiller we will actually fix (hey that one is easy, just needs the pull cord).

Making progress! And, the animals can eat the grass so you don't need a mower anyways, but a tiller is important...need to unearth the worms for the girls to fight over them...lol.

We have a serious tiller that we love to use. It's a 5' wide one that fits on the back of the tractor. Although I think the kids get a bigger kick outta the fresh tilled ground, worms for fishin' and add a hose and presto a nice mud hole. Ahhhh, the joys of country life.

Oh puh-leeese, who says all the good toys are for boys. LOL! If I tried to till my gardens with the little tiller, planting season would be over before the earth was turned. My hubby says I can't seem to do anything in moderation. Two of my gardens are each over 100 x 100. I have plans to more than triple each of those and quite possibly add another. OK,not possibly add but most definitely will. LOL! Have toys will play

So you have two plots of 110X100 and you plan to triple them.
that is than 300X300.....................Just a small point of clarification here if I may.
Thats not gardening thats farming.....................forget the tiller and get a horse and plow...........or a john deere.............. Smile

That's the beauty of being on acreage, you can go overboard whenever, wherever. We are planning on putting in a larger pumpkin patch, sweet corn patch that you wouldn't believe. We have a few acres that we don't have fenced for the animals and aren't in row crops so we figured extend them out. One less thing to mow, LOL! We figured we can sell any extra at the flea market and share with our friends.

Gots a Deere, gotta pull that tiller with something. That was the first thing we bought when we bought this place. Can't imagine life without a tractor, even if it's just a compact one.

Can't wait for spring to get here. Love the smell of freshly tilled ground.
