This evening we say goodbye to the Kubota KX-080 Excavator, But before it leaves I need to fix up the borrow pit at the Renewable Resources Processing Center. I used the excavator to shape the slope and clean up.

Good morning all. Still chilly and damp here. Sharpening chains and catching up on things at the Stihl store today. Take a moment today and pray for all those souls who lost their life are those still suffering as a result of the unprovoked attack on our country 19 years ago. Have a day.

Good morning from northern iowa, beautiful morning, its been light rain and drizzling for better part of a week but only an inch and a half of moisture, bright and sunny today, Sunday. Great job with that excavator, your slope looks great. Love to hear more about your plans in retirement. Take care and God Bless.

*Dear Kubota KX-080:* "You were a good, trusty steed. You dug out my pond. And, prepped the site for the best hobby garage on this side of the Mississippi River. I'm gonna miss you old friend. I'll swing by the rental yard from time to time and check in on you. Until we join forces again." ---- Your friend, Michael Morgan

Thinking all of us along the Eastern Seaboard are going to get hammered !!! Way to many storms at sea right now !!! The next month could be bad . Winter I think is going to nail us big time !!! I think a wall would have suited you better . With your operation there , would have been a good spot for the wood mill . Nice big wall behind . That being said , you sure can use that machine !!!!! Looks Fantastic !!!!

Check with a local Concrete place, They make 1 cubic yard rectangular barrier blocks out of product brought back on trucks. they interlock and make great retaining walls. and here they are sold pretty cheap, usually less than a fresh cubic yard delivered. I'm guessing if you had 20 stacked 2 high would solve your problem. Mike M.

Regarding your question that addresses the upcoming winter, my thoughts are a much colder and snowier winter than usual. According to the weather experts, the jet stream is forecasted to drop lower in North America. Typically that brings more cold and precipitation. One sign that the fall season is fast approaching is the leaves are beginning to turn in Northern Vermont and Northern New York.

I love your hunting and shooting (bench) videos. Also, hows your deer feeding doing? Are they crushing the feed? Its good you arent seeing the bucks around right now, they wander pretty far during the rut, Im hoping they wander back to your property. Get set up in the cabin this year, you should be able to knock down a few deer this year. Cheers!

I know how you feel about letting go of a machine that will do just about everything but tie shoes. I knew you fell in love with it when you were starting the build site. Some trees would of lived had it not been so easy to get them out roots and all. My ocd would drive me nuts with tree roots and have kids pulling them and tossing in a pile to be burnt or hauled. I don't fall in love with brand or color on machinery. I buy what I can afford and usually buy with intentions of making much better piece out of it. Those days are over for me at seventy three. I am down to one arm and leg that still work and have Edema problems that are only getting worse. Winter!!! It is and will be as predicted colder than summer and we will miss the hot days that never end. I don't like high heat or cold and I live in Central Alaska where weather does do some extremes so if I were to guess, I would say very cold, and early. Not a lot of snow but very cold. Not a good year to bring a herd through. I was a mechanic for many years but found a lot of happiness in working at home on stuff brought to me to fix. I ate a lot of Lasagna or other meals fixed just to say thank you.... some put me on the christmas list. That was a surprise. You find a place, get to know the few neighbors that you have and stick to yourself and in the end, its all good

Hi Mike. That slope might be a candidate for a planting of crown vetch or some other vegetation that won’t require mowing and provides good erosion control. Don’t build in dangerous maintenance on your landscaping

Even if it’s steep you could plant Mini clover. They use it in golf courses, grows 4-6 inches tall. Needs mowing twice a year. Then it’ll grow 3-4”. No real need to mow later.

What I would do for this is draw a mental line between where the roots of the trees are in the edge of the driveway and draw straight line between them and then move the dirt to match that line then go from the other side the bottom up towards the house and do the same put a mental line in there and just move the line back up towards the house until you get the angle that you really want and then roughly go through and try and get that. That means moving dirt uphill on top of some of that grass, But that changes your downhill angle and steepness, instead of being that step on the end you can sort of divide that slope both ways and just make it a smoother transition as possible. But once you get down to the end it’s going to be pretty steep because you’ve got the woods right there and you’ve cut that back pretty far so like you were saying to make it less steep you’re gonna lose flat ground area which you don’t want to do but for the top half of it you could smooth the transition quite a bit, Instead of looking at it in a 20 or 30 foot area look at it across to 50 or 60 foot area and plan your grade that way but down in that bottom corner you’re going to be steep no matter what. I think it looks good now, just at the very top I would personally spread that grade out a little and just make it a smoother transition and that would allow you to mow quite a bit farther. I know you’re gonna miss the back hoe. I have absolutely no use for one and I still want it. Lol.

Have you considered planting a ground cover plant instead of grass? The soil looks darn good and should promote good growth. Some kind of ivy maybe. Something that doesn't grow high. Just a thought. Do you ever have the opportunity to find large rocks for free. That would look nice too. You could always move them to another location down the road should you want to change the terrain.

I'm in Northern Lower Michigan (Leelanau County) and we also had a hotter then normal summer. And the switch to fall turn fast. Just hoping we have at least 2 months of moderate weather. MY thought about this winter is that it will be short but hard. I think its gonna start early December and go till the end of February. Thinking we"ll see about 135 inches of snow this year
