Hey ya'll!

Hey everyone I am new to this forum. I will tell you a little bout myself. First I am a Junior at Margaretta High School and a PROUD member of the Margaretta FFA Chapter. I am also a avid photographer, hunter, fisherman, and trapper. I took over my familys farm and currently have started my own farm, not only as a FFA project but I hope as a life long part-time job. I farm about 3 acres of vegetables and the remaining 50 acres is in grain I hope to eventually expand that as well into vegetables as I expand my buisness. This year was my first season on my own. I am going to go to Northwestern Tech in Lima for Ag Mechanics, and heavy diesel. I am a gear head I am always rebuilding or fixing something. I read constantly to expand my knowledge. I just finished restoring my 1949 MM UTU, I will post pics. I love talking tractors and trains. I am a model railroader I model the Pennsylvania RR in HO scale during the 1960's. I also play guitar. We have a Farmall M and H, also we have a Oliver 66 and 88, finally we have a MM UTU and Farmall Cub. I am young and full of questions I'm sure I can keep you guys busy. Mike

Welcome aboard Mike. I think we need a few more young guys around here to keep the conversations going.

If you love tractors and railroads, you should have attended the big Oliver show over the Labor Day weekend out in Pennsylvania.
There were over a thousand tractors, 400 of which were Oliver and they also had an operating steam locomotive. I walked for two days and really didn't see it all.
My son graduated from high school in 2005 and had been in the FFA. The students met after school once a week and restored a Farmall H.... boy! was that ever a basket case when they started and they turned it into a really cool tractor.
What vegetables do you raise and what do you do with them?
Good to see you come aboard,

This is my first season totally on my own, but I grow sweetcorn, pumpkins, and tomatoes, I am sell them to local stores and at my roadside stand. I am also testing the waters in peppers and melons, as well as popcorn. Mike
