Once again, I’m noticing the blending of farming eras. The Ferguson tractor, aka FERGIE, was built in the 1950s. We use it to work the weeds in our tree rows. Many of the farms around here still have a tractor like this around. I think of my father and feel some nostalgia when I use or see relics from the old days. On the other hand, I’m happy that my family doesn’t have to spend hours in the heat and dirt to make our living now.
