1941 Ford 9N
Meet our tractor. She's a 1941 Ford 9N who's sole purpose in life right now is to grade our driveway. Our driveway is gravel, down one side, straight up the other side and it's .2 miles long. As the mover said when he called with our stuff from the street, "Yeah, I'm not sure I'm at the right place. I'm at your address but then the road goes down into a canyon...?" Yup, that's our driveway, a gravel road that goes into a canyon. Because of the fact that our road is also in the middle of the woods, the leaves and the drainage to the middle of the canyon make for a messy road in the fall. So, we are learning to use a tractor now to help with this. She leaks a little oil and will need new wheels sometime soon, but she's our tractor and she's found a new home on our new small farm.
