Saturday Farm Photos: A Slight Haying Delay

Old Tractors Don't Always Start on the First Try

But the 20th Time's a Charm!

© Copyright 2008, the award-winning blog where sometimes we fix our well worn tractors and haying equipment with duct tape and baling twine — then hold our breaths and repeat our soothing mantra while waiting to see if they'll make it through one more year: They may be old, but they're paid for. They may be old, but they're paid for.


  1. Now YOU are my kind of farmer! But I have to say, I was looking at that picture and feeling the same kind of frustration that I feel when our lawn tractor, or our water pump, or the chainsaw, of one any number of machines we have, doesn't start. At least your hunky farmguy is there to fix things--I have to wait for my husband to get home from work. I really should learn to do it myself, but we all have our limits.

  2. I love your mantra! Patience, patience, they're paid for.


December 2015 update: Hi! For some reason I can't figure out, Blogger hasn't been letting me leave comments on my own blog (!) for the last several months, so I've been unable to respond to your comments and questions. My apologies for any inconvenience! You're always welcome to email me: farmgirlfare AT gmail DOT com.

Hi! Thanks for visiting Farmgirl Fare and taking the time to write. While I'm not always able to reply to every comment, I receive and enjoy reading them all.

Your feedback is greatly appreciated, and I especially love hearing about your experiences with my recipes. Comments on older posts are always welcome!

Please note that I moderate comments, so if I'm away from the computer it may be a while before yours appears.

I try my best to answer all questions, though sometimes it takes me a few days. And sometimes, I'm sorry to say, they fall through the cracks, and for that I sincerely apologize.

I look forward to hearing from you and hope you enjoy your e-visits to our farm!
