July 22, 2009, Thrashing day
Hello faithful reader.
Well, this years annual plowing and thrashing demo took place, once again, at the Lewis farm in Markham Ontario, on July 22. This year one new piece of equipment was added, a horse drawn potato planter.
Oh i forgot to mention, this is a day for display and use of horse drawn farm equipment and early gas powered thrashers and tractors. The equipment has been purchased and repaired over the years and a group of local and not so local farmers put them to use every year.
Small crowds ten years ago, the day attracts people from all over, and now a crowd of 150-200 is the norm.
Pictured is Ted English and his team pulling the wheat cutter.
Thanks for listening
