Sunday Adventures

Yesterday was another very productive day. I revamped the seed room and erected the small temporary greenhouse outside. We use the temporary greenhouse for plants once they are transplanted. So now with the expanded seeding room, we will have enough room for our seedlings as we continue to sow. I also went back out to the field to disk the last little patch left before it rained. I changed the fuel filters once again and head out to the field only to have the tractor stall out on me in the middle of the road. I was able to get it running again and get it up into the farm yard. I pulled the filters again and realized they were only half full with fuel. This made me realize that there must be dirt in the bottom of the tank or in the line. So today I am going to investigate further by take in the fuel line off of the tank to see if there is any flow out of the tank. I am guessing this is the problem. The engine is being starved of fuel. 

Once I get the tractor running, I will most likely work on the doors for the greenhouse. It rained a little bit, so I am sure it is too wet to disk. Oh well, there isn't much I can do about it. We moved all of our onion sets and seed potatoes to the cooler as it was starting to get too warm in the garage. It is also dark in the cooler with will slow things down. This warm weather is making every want to sprout. In fact many of the trees are starting to leaf out. I am not so sure that is good, but it is what it is. I am also going to try to get the rest of the orchard pruned tomorrow. I only have a few more trees to go and it will be done. Then I can spray the trees with dormant oil. This smothers any insects that may have laid eggs under the bark before winter. This will also help to prevent worms. Well, it is time to get busy! Have a great day!
