Budd E. Shepherd Returns


My White 2-155 like the Parson's Shay, will one just turn to dust...

I am slightly optimistic that will now be able to comment on my own and other people's blogs with my blogger identity. In the next half hour I will know if I can actually post this blog update...

I switched to Chrome. I decided why not have google track every movement of Budd E. Shepherd? It was one my goal to gain lots of followers who wanted to read my complaints about farming and astute observations on life? Perhaps, some NSA spook, bored to tears from reading home improvement blogs about freaking Chicken Tractors, will find the Lazy Farmer and get a chuckle.

This has been a busy year. I ended up doing quite a bit of farming in the evenings after my other job. I am not sure why I am so tired this year. Perhaps I am wearing out, much like the tractor in the above photo. It wasn't that long ago that I bought it. But then again, so much has happened in the last decade it is hard to believe.

Before 2007 I had a different blog. I deleted it for various reasons. I wish I would have saved a backup. I suspect it had all the details of my No-till beginnings and also my 2-155 tractor purchase. The first Daily Strumpet/ Lazy Farmer blog shows my second grain drill. My first drill I pulled with the MMG1355.

  1. I often wish I had a way to back my blog up. I think I have 1500 posts up on the interweb, I'd be gutted to loose them as it's such a diary of what we've done here over the years. Glad to see you're back. You still working at the same job?

    1. I was reading old posts. Quite interesting. I am still a groundskeeper and a farmer. I am probably going to have to find a new job as my daughter nears graduation.

  2. I quit being concerned about preserving my past posts. No one seems interested now, so I assume they won't be interested in the future either. ;-)

  3. Good to see the lazy farmer again. I don't get updates from blogspot so I just drop in occasionally to see whats new. I remember the deacon's masterpiece from school days many years ago and some lines still come to mind. I've gotten lazy about making new blog posts. Seems I concentrate more on the youtube channel these days. Quite a bit of my history on there.

  4. Good to see a post. Archiving is important. I use Evernote to keep me on task. 'Archive' blog and Facebook posts always remains an open item.
