"Rain Stopped Play."
Number one son cranked the digger up and shoveled me a big pile of last years fym over the fence into the vegetable plot. This saved me having to take wheelbarrows and tractor transport boxes around to the plot. We have to fence it to stop the cattle having a disco on the vegetables. Any road. I can't spread the fym about until it finally decides to dry up and normal vegetable garden service can resume. All you can do is read your gardening books, seed catalogues and plan what you are going to (attempt) grow this year.

The Fordson Super Dexta tractor restoration is almost complete. We replaced and stripped the old mudguards ourselves. But we did pay for the nose cone to be professionally restored along with some sandblasting and the final spray finish. Some jobs you can do your self and some you leave to the professionals. The tractor was my fiftieth birthday present. She's exactly the same age too - born in 1963. I don't know if she was built in Dagenham or Cork. I think it was Cork. Any way. She's beautiful and she's an heir loom to be passed down for future generations.
