    step 1) Catch wife taking a nap & steal her 4wd Durango (Ok, maybe "Borrow").
    step 2) Break out that old JD pull disc that's been sitting out in the weeds near the plum bushes for at least 20 years.
    step 3) Go find that tow cable your wife wanted to throw away but you just knew you'd need someday.
    step 4) Make sure none of the neighbors are watching.

    Ok, what really happened was I had been working on that darned tractor all morning and got mad and decided I was going to disc that garden if it killed me. I needed to get the turnips & mustard planted, I live in the south for goodness sake, you HAVE to have greens. My wife and kids were crying with laughter and my wife thought it would be cute to take pictures. (They are all evil little buggers) Now she's bribeing me by telling me she's gonna post the pics online. So I'm just beating her to the punch.

    BUT... I got the greens planted.

    Yeah, it's only about 120' by 200'

    Most years we have to do alot of planting in raised beds to plant all we want. This is just the kitchen garden.

    My dad used to harrow with an old T-Ford. He also used it to rake hay.
