Ya itís been awhile since Iíve been here. Iím back in Port Orchard, Wa for the winter. I hauled an old 42Ē craftsman snowblower here and Iím going to convert it to a 42Ē pull type tiller. Iíve already gutted the thing, with a lot more fabrication to do it should easily be ready to hit the garden in time. Iíve got the tines, 1Ē shaft bearings, wheels and tires. Iíll be installing a 9hp electric start 6 to 1 gear reduction motor to drive it. Engaging the rotation of tines, raising and lowering will be via remote control. This is going to be a fun project.

Iím making progress on my binford 20000 pull behind tiller. Should be done in plenty of time to head back to ND and put her to work.

My tiller is almost complete. I Just need to get a sealed box for my controllers. Itís been tested and works like a champ.

Hoops are complete, soil heating cables in place. Plants are ready but not out yet, still waiting for the heating cables to reach closer to 70 degrees. Although in years past I put my plants in cold soil and still didnít do to bad. I still have some cleanup, a little tilling, then put out walking boards.
