Well heck......as usual I jump right in to discussions rather than introducing myself. New JD tractor soon to be owner. Had a JD mower in the past on a horse trade. New 1025R coming with FEL and 54" deck and will add box blade and hopper afterwards as well as iMatch hitch for ease of interchanging. Oh, and a rotary tiller as well as I intend to start a decent sized garden next year as this year is underway. I plan to till ground and plant flower plots too for the honey bees as I am finally going to get into hive keeping and would like to create a food source for bees. May end up doing large clover plots for them too.
Any honey bee owners out there feel free to chime in......read the Keith Delaplane book and ready to start that venture next year.
