    I started like that over 50 years ago!! Still today its in my blood. I can totally understand how farmers can watch a plow turn a furrow for hours on end.

    I like your set up, simple and effective.

    I could certainly make use of something like that, especially to screen out my top soil.

    This is what I'm generally using for topsoil. It's small and slow, if the material is dry and relatively weed free, if not, it's kind of a waste of time. But, it's ok for small projects.

    Thanks for the comment there colson. 20190604_102032.jpg 20190604_103055.jpg
