Got onto my small field tonight after work. used a tool bar to break up the soil.
Mother nature and Jack Frost worked together to give me an excellent crop of rocks this spring.

I will get to pick my first crop real soon. Oooh, my aching back.

Got to get my rock fork out and sharpen the tines.
My dad bought a farm when I was 11. My first job was to drive the tuck for the rock pickers. I could either stand and see where I was going, or sit to run the clutch and brake. I was a little Johnny jump up in that old truck, going from standing to sitting. Sure beat trying to lift those rocks up to the back of the truck.
