Howard 350: The Rotavator

24-06-2008



Rotavator

The crop is doing well (in this case asparagus) but the weeds are even doing better.

Yes, these are leeks. We ate many of them, sometimes 8 leeks in one meal but we still couldn't manage to get through them. We should have given away more than we already did.

In comes the rotavator! Clarkie is pushing (not really pushing, the engine was on in second gear. It was too hard to push in neutral) the rotavator through our village to the allotment. Unfortunately, these days we can't leave a rotavator on our allotment or it will be stolen.

The Howard 350 has arrived. The grass behind it is in fact our asparagus plot.

The tomatoes we have planted ourselves in growbags in the greenhouse. They are doing well and some of them are not far of eating.

Clarkie and the rotavator in action.

Some parts of the allotment were to overgrown with weeds and too much to handle for Howard. We called in the big guns to go over it so we can rotavate it afterwards.

In this picture you get a good impression of how overgrown the allotmant actually was.

In fact, it was so overgrown that even the tractor could not handle it. It got stuck and the grass needed to be manually removed from between the blades. We need to do some howing first on this plot.

the tractor does make a big difference.

The weeds and grass will be burned on the allotment.

Aero has a go with Howard.

Howard was pretty successful.

A closer look at our asparagus plot. Can you see one? We were told not to touch this plot until September or October and then we will be able to hoe it.

The parsnips where another crop we had so many of that we had to throw some away. We ate loads of them in soups and other meals but could not handle the lot and they started to rot and tasted woody. Again, we should have given more away when they were still good. What a waste. Lesson learned.

An overview where you can clearly see where Howard has been. Also visible, strawberries on the left and onions on the right.

Howdy! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog. Is it hard to set up your own blog? I'm not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I'm thinking about setting up my own but I'm not sure where to start. Do you have any ideas or suggestions? Thank you|

Hi

I have a howard 350 that wasn't sparking- points were continually fowling dew to leaky seal into engine. I removed the points and condenser and replaced with a chip just ebay "McCulloch 10-10 chip" came from america. This fix worked brilliant for me and no more points to clean.

Steffen,That's a good question. I unootsrded it as you wanting to replace the displayed site title in the WordPress Admin.You could try something like this:/** * customize Admin header title (replaces site title / bloginfo('name') ) */function replace_admin_bloginfo_name $output, $show if is_admin && $show == "name" $output = 'New Title of Your Admin Page'; return $output; add_filter 'bloginfo', 'replace_admin_bloginfo_name', 10, 2 ;It's too bad that WordPress allows a filter on the actual html_title ($admin_title), but hadn't done it for the displayed title ($blog_name) in the file admin-header.php. That would have been the simple way of replacing the administrator title.What I did above was plugin to the bloginfo filters in the fuction get_bloginfo in the file general-template.php. I don't know how elegant the solution is (I'm thinking performance-wise), but it's tested out alright for me. This should allow you to replace the WordPress admin site title.
