This "farm" is one of my husband's dreams. We rent the land to a farmer down the road to keep the fields cleared. The only animals we have are our cats, Franklin and Princess. We are both professionals with day jobs but he loves to come home and "putter" as he calls it. Ron also loves tractors! He collects toy tractors and would love to collect the real thing! He does have a Farmal Super A but it doesn't do all he would like it to. He has talked on and off about selling it and getting something else but we don't really farm so we don't really need a tractor (at least that's what I try to tell him.)
The other night, he told me about a Massey Ferguson tractor he saw for sale that has a bucket, a three point hitch and a brush hog. I was not nearly as excited as he was. Without letting me ask anything like how much is it? He moves right into telling me what this tractor can do for me! The brush hog is a mower that he can mow the heavy grasses that grow on the hill I love. The view is wonderful up there and very relaxing. The bucket will be invaluable since he can use it to dig and find the broken pipe in the yard. Then we can have water to the green house and barn (who knows, maybe even have a farm critter.) He can also build me raised beds and a small pond with it. The three point hitch makes it easy to change all the parts so he can work faster at my projects! I never thought we should get a new tractor but he has me thinking about that water feature! He is a VERY smart husband!
