Most of the day yesterday, and 4 hours today. Takin a break. The sprouts on the north 40 grew like ganbusters this summer. With all the rain and warm weather a lot of them are from 2-3" around and 5-7' tall. Briars are above the hood. Have to run in second gear and then have to make two passes to bust em down to the ground. All the runnin in 2nd gear gets the tractor HOT !! Probably the rest of today and tomorrow to finish. The old Ford is beatin me to death ..... With manual steering might be till after the first of the year till my back, arms, shoulders get over this beatin.
