Tractor hunting

This afternoon we went tractor hunting.  We had already looked at the John Deere, so today was Kubota day.   There are many choices and though we were looking at the lower end, these creators cost plenty.  So how do we find a used one that we won’t have to spend a lot on repairs?  I don’t yet know, but will try to learn.   Farming is expensive and labor intensive!  Even though I don’t want to pay any more than I absolutely have to for my food, I also realize how inexpensive it really is to go to the grocery store and purchase it.  I am thankful to those who spend their time and energy in this way.

This little mountain lap quilt is now ready to quilt.  It will measure about 53″ square when finished.

    You need to look at Wenatchee & Ellensburg craigslist for tractors. Lots more on this side of the mountains for sale….. https://wenatchee.craigslist.org/search/sss?query=tractor&sort=rel

  2. Love that quilt! I like the way that you separated the “mountain” rows with a contrasting strip – gives you a slightly bigger quilt, with a little added interest!
    Buying tractors is always “fun”! Even the new(er) ones sometimes need work. Hubby got a call from his boss – their one-year old tractor wouldn’t start – they replaced the batteries (logical place to start), but that hasn’t solved the problem – and they’re so complicated now – the average farmer can’t do his own repairs…
