    My trial of the Ruth Stout method

    I do have an issue with voles though. Next year I will grow everything on trellises made from welded wire to keep it off the ground. The only other solution is to bury hardware cloth in a 12" deep trench, and 12" above ground. The trellises will increase yield, I think, and will be easier.

    My trial of the Ruth Stout method

    I was extremely pleased. We got more tomatoes, cucumbers and zucchini than we could eat and give away, and below are a couple of watermelons and cantaloupes. The picture of the garden is in september, as it was dying off. On the left are white sweet potatoes (about 20 pounds), then you can see some purple and green peppers, then the tomatoes, though I think they were pretty much done when this picture was taken. Then on the right are beans, peas, and potatoes. Not shown are 15 raspberry bushes. Considering the ground was rock hard clay, with 4 inches of compost, it produced amazingly well. I did zero weeding, and very little watering, and I may have not needed to water at all, I was just paranoid because it was so dry. The weeds and grass you see is an area with no plants. I ran out of hay, and since nothing was planted, I just let it grow. I mowed everything down and put about 4 inches of packed hay over the whole thing for winter. If your hay is fluffy, use 6 to 8 inches. Let it rot over winter, then put down another 3 to 6 inches in spring, and pull it aside to plant your seeds or plants. By the third or fourth year, the dirt should be loose and black, like compost. It should continue to yield more and more every year. The most work after it was set up the first time, was keeping everything picked. Next was putting down the hay at the end. During the summer, it was pretty much maintenance free. If weeds pop up, toss hay on them to smother them

    xi mower deck

    I have a 60" and also a smaller deck, I think it is a 48", possibly a 52" if you are willing to drive to Buffalo. The 60" is actually a New Holland for a GT-22, but it is the same deck. I have a GT-22 and a 522 XI, they are identical tractors except power steering. Toro made the GT-22 for NH. You can look at both and compare if you like. It works fine, I haven't used it since I bought it. It is stored inside my garage. It is blue, but otherwise identical to the Toro deck Pm me if interested. I will be leaving town for 5 weeks November 10th so get in touch quickly if interested.

    Wanted xi 2 stage snow blower

    I have one if you are willing to drive to Buffalo. It is actually a New Holland for a GT-22, but it is the same blower. I have a GT-22 and a 522 XI, they are identical except power steering. You can look at both and compare if you like. It it works fine, I had just put all new bearings on it, new jack shaft, chain, etc. It does have a bit of surface rust and the belt is broken. I took it off in 2017 then broke my ankle and haven’t used it since. I bought a single stage as the 2 stage is too heavy for me to move. Pm me if interested. I will be leaving town for 5 weeks November 10th so get in touch quickly if interested.

    My trial of the Ruth Stout method

    I forgot to update this. I'll try to take a picture tomorrow, but the sweet potatoes have grown so much they are starting to cover the tomatoes. I have gotten more produce than I can possibly eat, freeze and give away, and this is only the first year. It gets better every year, according to the fans of this system. Tomorrow I will see if any of the melons are ripe yet.

    FEL ladder frame question

    Actually, reading further, I think they are only 1/8", but I haven't had any issues at all.

    FEL ladder frame question

    Nope, 1/4". My build isn't the prettiest, since it was also my first time using a MIG welder, but it seems to be nice and strong. http://www.wheelhorseforum.com/topic/61940-522xi-front-end-loader-build/?tab=comments#comment-577778
