Mother's Day has passed so it's theoretically okay to plant here!
DH started up the Rototiller and got a few passes done, then helped me finish it. All new tines and it was CRAZY that thing would hit a tough spot and take off dragging a 6'2" 200lb big ol' guy behind it. Beets are in, three 200' strips of weedblock are down and I gave up for the day since I had horses to feed/barn to clean.
DH and I are ticked though, no more than 20mins after we finished up and parked the rototiller out in the driveway median to clean off the mud, the neighbor send their KIDS over to borrow it. Ok, whatever... I cleaned it up, re-assembled it, hubby and I loaded it onto our flatbed trailer (it probably weighs 200lbs), hooked it to their truck and sent them home.
Hubby's boss asks to borrow it (good friend, I babysit his kids and we loan all sorts of farm stuff back and forth), so I told him I'd drop it by figuring that when the neighbors brought it back it'd already be loaded so I'd just swap to my truck and then drop off trailer + rototiller across town. WRONG! Neighbors brought it back without so much as a peep, unloaded it and dumped it in the dirt in front of the house and left. No thank you, no here's it back, no where would you like it, just dumped and ran!
Hubby was asleep so I go digging in the shed for ramps and find the neighbors who had also "borrowed" 20 alfalfa bales during our Spring blizzard, never replaced those either!!
