Big Red

big redFor the last year we have rented a tractor, trucks and borrowed trucks and other tools….well now we have become real farmers. We purchased a 2000 F250 V10 4WD with a lift gate. Can’t get more farmer like than that……of course it only gets 11 mpg, but when you only plan on driving it 1-2,000 miles/year who cares. It can lift 1,000 pounds and carry 2,500 pounds in the back.

I can’t believe we have lived without a pick-up for so long. We now make weekly trips to the dump, to get mulch/compost, getting grow tubes, that kind of thing.

So if you come visit and want to borrow a truck, be prepared to drive a 5 speed with a granny gear.
