    Getting the boat ready for the next run to Hewitt Lake and beyond;

    Looks like a mod you needed long ago Ard. No reason to suffer on the coldest days. The small windshield on my boat makes all the difference in the world when you can remove most of the 30mph windchill factor.

    If I'm lucky Duh, it won't need mowed too many times this year. I missed a deal on a bush hog for 900 dollars this spring but hope to get one next year for the cabin mowing. Then it won't matter how high it gets by the time I arrive.

    I put another entry on here, a windscreen on the boat finally

    The "mowing portion" of my primary residence is just a bit bigger than yours, and 25% steeper grade. Not owning a high quality lawn tractor would be unthinkable. But one of us doesn't mow their lawn 25 times a year.

    Good to hear from you

    It's been a dry spring here and I've only had to mow twice so far. The bank on the west of the driveway is just starting to grow and hasn't been cut yet. I think that next year I'll get a lawn tractor so this can be done quicker.

    Given a choice between a riding mower for home or a Brush Hog for the cabin I'll take the Bush Cutter every time though. That's the real job.

    Looking really good Ard. I roto tilled and hand seeded about an acre once. Yeah, your way is better. That should look pretty nice by fall.

    I haven't topped the beds because I may decide to move some late this fall, besides they do better in rough conditions.

    There are also about 100 lupine plants doing well out front.

    They are all blooming at this time, I'll take a few photos once they are in full swing and post them. It was a success and there is a lot of lupine about to flower also
