Oats are the best if it snows after they're planted. Not sure if the snow = poor man's fertilizer is the reason or if both old sayings are malarkey.

I don't have any confidence in it, just knew there was an old saying and I have some oats in the ground.

Every time my great grandfather and my dad would plant oats early and get a snow on them, was always the best oats!

Purrrrdy!  Gotta love nice new red paint!  I bet I could see my bald headed reflection in that thing easily.  Nice job.

Long time lurker on this site. Just registered and read this thread and thought I would comment.

Nice job naming the thread and sticking with posting through completion.

Any chance you would give a ball park of what you spent in hours and dollars?

Looks great and thanks again for posting this.

Parts and supplies are probably north of 7,000 by now.  Hours??   Tons….  We have been working on it in our spare time (after our 40-50 hour town jobs and helping dad with the farm).  That’s why it’s hard to guess at hours in it and why it takes a while.

Few more days and it gets hitched to the planter.   It is finally drying up around us and starting to warm up.   Decals are on the other side, lights and SMV sign in rear.  Front end narrowed up, rims painted and new rubber on….
