So we got a new tractor. We desperately needed one, especially at this time of year when the tilling needs to be done. It will also come in handy later with weeding. With the generous and knowledgeable help of our dear friend Mark Grahlman from Sunrise Organics, we acquired a 1956 Ford 600. It’s almost as old as the both of us combined. ok, ok, not quite but it’s certainly older than each of us by a long shot. It has been beautifully maintained and restored. Grant tilled yesterday and texted me “greatest tractor ever!” so it must be doing a good job. It has lovely lines and beautiful design elements that are unlike anything made these days. We promise to look after it and do our best to see it is running in 2056. Here are a few pics.
