Today is a good day. I put a new muffler on the tractor. I couldn’t find the correct one but I found a cheap quality one. I used a cherry bomb muffler, they’re made of thicker than normal steel pipe, have next to no restriction, and are $32. Total install time was 20 minutes. I gave it a quick spray of Tremclad black, it’ll burn off as soon as we use it, but it looks good now.
The garden is starting to grow, cucumbers and some flowers have germinated.
