    Can be a good time to prepare, here old school small-holders and arable croppers use the subsequent frosts and freezes of the coming winter to further the soil breakdown process. Manure rolled in also has time to dissipate and settle chemically.

    Like you have much else to do..

    Looks like a standard 3 point PTO bone rattler, but I don't know that make. What's the stone content like around your place? Here we frequently turn such machines to plumes of stone dust and shrapnel given the chance. Granite rarely loses in the long run.

    I have an Aunt that has been a small holder on 30 acres, I myself have lived and worked on many farms in Cornwall, of all sorts. I dreamed one day I might get myself a patch and grow medicinal herbs such as Echinacea or St Johns Wort. Make tinctures and dried root for infusion purposes. Echinacea is a nice one because you can also sell the flowers. High value (if processed into tinctures) perennial, you'd need to check suitability for your climate, but I imagine it would do very well in Oregon.

    What's the slug situation round your way?

    Oh, the WBF has its share of slugs.


    Wait- you meant snails without shells? PITA little buggers for sure.

    Nice tiller Mr. Baxter. Don't go with harder bolts for shear pins than the mfr recommends! I haven't, but a neighbor got tired of replacing them in his bony soil. The gearbox was not a pretty sight.

    The Howard brand has been around a while.

    i should like to someday tell you about the time i got pulled over by a georgia sherriff's deputy in my brother's-in-law truck, who happens to be an echinacea farmer. . .

    I have noticed Lews reluctance to divulge what he'll actually be planting out there.

    And having noted that..

    Can one even be a weed farmer in modern day Oregon?
