I love to chisel plow, it is without a doubt my favorite thing to do on this earth. I’ve started helping Ron whenever I can now, after school, and on weekends. All I’ve done so far was pull his disk, which I like but not as much as the chisel plow. I finished disking on Friday so Saturday morning we unhooked the disk and pulled the chisel plow out of the weeds. The points were good but it needed a little bearing work, which is no problem for an old bearing changer like me.
So while Ron went after bearings I grabbed a grease gun and greased the plow and tractor. Have I mentioned that Ron also has my favorite tractor hooked to the plow? A John Deere 8960, Ron’s is almost identical to the one Chris has, I can literally run this tractor in my sleep. It took most of the morning to get the plow ready to go so after dinner I headed to the field.
Andrea came and rode with me for a little bit.
