    Spring-Sproing

    Post by willowbilly3 on Sun Apr 20, 2014 8:11 pm

    I think it's here. Got the taters in on Good Friday. Been cleaning up all the raised beds, turning my manure piles and making mulch. I've been chipping all the small tree limbs and mixing in cardboard. Gonna use a lot of bagged garden dirt this year instead of the corral compost. I tried some last year and didn't have to deal with weeds. I got a pallet of the 2 cu.ft. bags of Miracle Grow brand for $7.10 a bag at Runnings.

    I'm hoping it sprung here too. We had a couple cold days last week but the trend seems to be warmer. Grass is changing from brown to green. If'n I'm lucky I'll find enough dandielions to make at least one good salad. Going to put in a few tamaters but that's it for this year. Much as I'd like to put in a garden I just don't have the time right now. Both jobs are busy and the house is getting major remodeling. Also I joined a local social club. Good restaurant/bar with a nice outdoor shooting range. I just get tired of working all of the time.  Laughing

    Those old Briggs twins are awesome. I've transplanted quite a few because they will still be running when the rest of a mower is completely clapped out. Most mowers have the bolt pattern but I have had to drill the holes a little bigger once or twice. I have a 16 and an 18 saved back right now and the Murray I use has one. Both of my garden tractors are mid 70s Sears (pre-craftsman, made by Roper) Onan twins and they will just spoil you yo go back to an old thumping single.
