Great thoughts on this topic. I too use the local roads to access our several garden plots scattered around the village. We have only had a couple of minor incidents but really enjoy the peace and purpose of the trips back and forth. Funny how I start to notice every pot hole, plugged culvert, or other pleasantry while heading to the field.
I load my trailer with the implement needed for the job, then hitch it to the fore cart and off we go. We are in no rush but have thought about what we are going to do before hand and have a purpose. It is also a plus to see the neighbors when they stop to chat.
My only trouble is figuring out how to get the tractor back and forth to these locations while spreading manure on the plots. If only Oz would pull the tractor with the manure spreader in tow.
