Farming By The Letters, What Letter Did Your Parents Use?
Growing up ‘back in the day’ my folk’s had the ‘letter’ tractors.
I remember we had an old ‘A’ John Deere, the one with the flywheel on the side that you had to turn…and turn…and turn until she started up! plup, plup, plup…I can still here that thing running!
We also had a ‘B’ Farmall, a smaller tractor, but quick enough for me and my brother to tie on a scoop shovel in the wintertime and go sledding…or I guess, ‘scooping’!
It got me to thinking, hmmm…our neighbors also had a variety of ‘letter’ tractors back then, some green, some red, some yellow and a few others. So, I asked on our facebook page what letter tractor you remember your folks having as a kid?
I got a lot of responses and some really cool pictures of those ‘old time’ tractors we grew up with. Check out some of the responses below and see if any of those letter’s bring back a warm farm memory!
