Ready and waiting

Out at the farm last week this big green tractor was ready and waiting to get in the field.  I think it was able to get in on Monday and Tuesday.  But now it's been raining for 2 days so it will have to wait awhile longer.

When I see enormous pieces of machinery like that one I'm reminded that it cost a whole lot to farm these days!

Jori said...

It always makes me happy to see tractors out working!

TexWisGirl said...

Cranberry Morning said...

Farmers here are just itchin' to get into the fields!

Karen said...

Now that is a grownup toy, as my grandfather used to say. He would have loved a 'toy' like that to use on the farm but stuck with his much-repaired and repainted (by me) Allis Chalmers until the day he died.

He is why I call every tractor Bessie, since that's what his was named.

It would be fun to ride in one! Your photo reminds me of the song Green tractor song!

It won't be long before all of the wonderful farmers' markets are open, Barb!

I hope you're having a wonderful week.

My dh wants one of those big green machines. I know the farmers are itching to get planting.

Awesome tractor! I just heard a news story that farmers in IL are very behind on planting their corn because it has been so muddy lately. I hope they can all get out there and plant soon.

Rose said...

Farmers around here are having trouble getting into their fields, too.

JoAnn ( Scene Through My Eyes) said...

Wonderful tractor!!!

Your plans for your Mother's Day sound like the perfect plans; church (what better place to think of our parent's) and then to spend time with your Mom. Sounds heavenly to me. Thanks for you fun compliments to me, too! (hug)

Between the cold and the rain, crops are going to be late this year. That is some tractor. Looks like it has tracks instead of tires?

Pamela Gordon said...

Wow, that is a really big green machine. I wonder what it does? The farmers are getting busy around here too spreading that lovely smelling manure. Thankfully the rain has soaked it into the ground today.

Judy said...

That's pretty much what's happening around here too.

Linda @ Itsy Bits And Pieces said...

That is something I'm excited to see! Greening up nicely here now, but raining, too!

Daniel LaFrance said...

Big or small, mud stops them all!

Karen @ away for the weekend said...

Hopefully, they'll get out soon. It's been a strange season.

Maple Lane said...

Good picture. We are finally enjoying some sun here in GA.

Michelle said...

Nice tractor! We enjoyed one day of full sunshine (today) and that should be it for the week! lol

Cheryl @ TFD said...

Our farmers have had a time getting into the fields this spring, too. It rained again today.

Barb said...

Hope the rain does your growing season some good. (But, I guess you must get something in the ground first!)

It's on tracks - how cool is that! Very nice machine!
My husband has a skidsteer on tracks, and just LOVES that thing. My sons, too.

Karen Frost said...

That's a sure sign of spring! I love the sound of tractors. xoxo

Brian King said...

Very impressive tractor! Does it have tires or tracks?

Carole M. said...

heavy duty worker - yes the farmers have to work with the weather

orchid Miyako said...

Dearest Barb,
Oh, my husband seemed to be attracted with the tractor. Huge tires☆☆☆

Sending you lots of love and hugs from Japan, xoxo Miyako*


Amy Burzese said...

I love seeing the farmers in the fields. There are many pieces of equipment out and about here.

Small City Scenes said...

Well the tractors are all out in the fields now. We have had the wettest Spring ever but the last 10 days have been pretty dry so 'business as usual'. MB
