The tractor is still in the shop. The corn harvest is going full tilt around here and equipment will break. The agricultural equipment has a higher priority. That’s okay with me. It’s a family’s income and it’s our food that should be more important than me being able to finally till my garden space for next year. Nevertheless, it is frustrating that it has been over a month since I’ve had the use of my tractor for more than a couple of hours.
Rain is forecast for the next couple of days. Hopefully, that will allow the mechanics to finish work on my tractor. We’ll see . . .
