SF,
$37 for 50lb bag. For cover I'd also mix in some Bermuda.

Thanks Tripper! Yeah, I'll follow up with other seed later. Out here I'll have to cover with straw or hay after casting or the birds will do away with on short order. Once the rye gets going I'll throw something else. I'm looking for some bulk seed around here and it's getting increasingly harder to find anything.

Tripper, it's too late for us to get ready for winter, it's already here. That looks like a 4000 Ford you've got there and my daughter has got her grandfathers [my Dads] 5000 Ford so it looks the same. The b&w picture is Dad cutting hay in about 1968 and the colour one is in 2013.

You can't find a round muffler in Alberta, Mac?

Dr. Crank, you're going to have a very tough time believing an honest Ford guy, but I happen to know that, that muffler is a fifty year old factory muffler and it doesn't need replacing yet. I haven't looked around for another muffler.

Yep, Rye grass! It'll grow at any temp. Used to have to put it down in the winter when building homes to stabilize the soil.
