I'm not sure what I'm going to do with it.  The long chunk I'll saw.  I've got a friend ;) who just got himself a Woodmizer 8) and after I go over the short butt piece with a metal detector he's gonna saw it.  I thought about cutting out all the crotches and seeing what they'd do on E-bay.  What about the stump ???  Would it be worth digging up ???

Worked on Grandma's walnut this afternoon for the 1st time since I cut it.  The weathers been nasty as a rule the last couple weeks and when ever we've had a good day there was something else that needed doing.  The rain tapered off this afternoon and about two I waded in with the 372  8)


All cut up except for the butt Whew  Haven't ran a saw much since I cut our firewood last fall.  It took just exactly 2 tanks of gas.  The saw leaned out just as I finished the last cut on the butt 8)


The butt made a 100" log.  I didn't think it would but things look different once you start carving


Other side of the butt.  There should be some crotch wood in there somewhere ;)


The last of the three 100" pieces out of the trunk.  Lots of crotches on the end.


I also cut anything that was fairly straight into sticks to saw.  All together there are 3 big pieces and a half dozen or so smaller chunks to saw up.  Lotsa a green color between the sap wood and the heartwood that appeared awhile after a cut was made and most of it was pretty well faded away when I called it quits


I got the H and the dump trailer out and hauled two loads of brush away. I was going to get another until I looked at my watch and saw it was 10 after 6 and realized I was hungry ;) ;D  Oh ya, Walnut brush doesn't load well on a trailer ::)  There's lotsa firewood too 8)

We've also got all the parts to put the 8N back together and plan to do that this week.  Want to finish up the tree mess tomorrow night, spray my punkin patch with RoundUp Tues and work on the tractor Wednesday.  That's the plan anyway.  It'll probably change ;)

We finished putting the tractor back together a few days ago and put the hoe back on it today.  This was her maiden voyage.  Drove it from the shop to my house for pics and back.  No funny noises in the rearend.  Guess we did something right 8) 8) 8) 8)

Pumpkins are up.  Some of em came up right away and others are just now breaking through after we finally got a decent rain.  The patch was weed free but along with the rain came the lambsquarter but it looks like I got the quack grass this time.  In a couple weeks I'll cultivate with the G Allis Chalmers 8).  Good excuse to play with a toy not that I need one ;) ;D ;D ;D  We used the backhoe some last night to excavate a bit of dirt for Mom's new porch/patio.

Thats cool how you sprayed before planting like that, I put in 500 hills of squash and pumpkins on memorial day and they all just popped through yesterday , things are late here this year , usually baling 1st hay memorial weekend but hardly any hay been cut yet here due to heavy rain and not so warm temps. Glad your backhoe is back in action for you .

I got my pumpkins in the first part of April. :D
Only did three pots and just got them in the ground yesterday. ::)
We haven't had much rain, so I was holding back on getting them in the ground, we'll see how they turn out.
They were starting to have some small blooms indoors though.  :o ;D

I don't think you can beat a 8N for an inexpensive, cheap to service and easy to work on tractor with a three point hitch. . You can now get a electronic ignition for them as well, no more fiddling with the points up by the fan! I am surprised no one has come up with a power steering kit for them, their only drawback!

I haven't even gotten around to planting our squash yet this spring...maybe this weekend while I am replanting the sweet corn.  ::)
