Giant Addition for Simplicity Gardens

"That's the great thing about a tractor.
You can't really hear the phone ring.
- Jeff Foxworthy

The Barnashram Boys are thrilled!  Finally, after three + years of farming, all with only a little riding lawn mower and their arms and backs to haul literally tons of compost, produce, and everything else here, they have acquired a tractor.

While I hesitantly admit, my vision of a Vedic Village would probably include more cows and bulls and lots of people than a tractor, it has already made a huge impact in helping the boys in what has become a wonderfully expanding endeavor - Simplicity Gardens.  The added tiller on the back has slashed the time of preparing beds for planting, and the overall number of projects we have hoped for over the years  now loom more as possibilities than far off dreams.

By the way, they have named it "Boss" as in, "We have 200 pounds of potatoes to get to the garden."  "That's okay.... the 'Boss' will take care of it."   Sure glad I'm not the boss.

For those of you who might be IN to tractors, it's a Kubota B3300su.
