I can relate... you should see the prices of used tractors or try locating 9.5X24 tractor tires. The few that are available are double the MSRP.

Went to town to pay the tire store & pick up gypsum to break down the clay from the propane tank installation. Also picked up my onion sets, which will be planted this weekend.

Made a lemon cake for our neighbors.

Put out 3 rolls of hay for the cattle. The wind is nasty...

Excellent!!! Now disbar the prosecutors for even charging him. And when the ferals riot, box them in & feed them into a woodchipper. It's passed time to start enforcing the laws again & get this country back under Constitutional control.

On a side note, I wonder if I could get Kyle to autograph the receivers on my ARs...

I went to till the onion row & the tiller is leaking gas, so I did it by hand. I'll plant my yellow granex sets tomorrow.

Ordered a replacement carburetor for the tiller.

Watered the garden & the trees/lirope.

Put the new license sticker on Mrs. Ranch's Jeep.

Vacuumed the greenhouse out in preparation for winter.

Cut the grass ahead of the rain.

Mrs. Ranch made 2 pumpkin pies.

Mrs. Ranch & I cleaned the cushions on the back porch furniture & then put them in plastic bags for storage. I'll move them into the garage attic tomorrow.

Raining pretty good this morning, 1.37" thus far. The cold front also just arrived, The temp was 70 this morning, it's now down to 54.

Made bread.

Put the outdoor furniture cushions up in the garage attic & brought the small Christmas tree down for the season.

Seasoned up a big sirloin that I was hoping to put on the smoker for supper... but the weather isn't cooperating, so I did it as a roast in the oven. Grabbed 5 kohlrabi out of the garden to throw in with it, along with carrots, onions & celery.

Mrs. Ranch made the 'Twice-Baked Potatoes'.

Dieter & I are watching 'Where Eagles Dare (1968) with Richard Burton & Clint Eastwood while supper's cooking.

Cleaned the front room windows (both in/out) & then set the Christmas tree in place. Started cleaning the kitchen windows.

Put out hay for the cattle.
