I'm also planning ahead in terms of canning. I've put a post out on freecycle to see if anyone has canning jars they don't want and I'll keep my eyes out at garage sales and the thrift shops. I want to have a nice big stash of jars at the ready because in the heat of the canning season I won't want to be scrambling for (or worse ~ buying!) canning jars. My dehydrator is working and clean. Last year, I invested in a few extra rings for it so that I could bump up the quantity of food dried per batch.
My garden bench and outdoor tool storage cupboard is tidy and organized as is my little wooden tote that I keep with me at all times in the garden. I keep it stocked with my hand tools, labels/stakes, my little seeders, tie tape, and work gloves. My garden wagon (a 19 year old plastic wagon that all 5 kids rode in) is my steady, ever hard working and faithful (although a little gaudy and unattractive) companion. It hauls all manner of tools, plants, soil, rocks, water, pots and anything else I need it to without so much a word of complaint. Our wheelbarrow is in good shape, poised to barrow, with air in the tire. It's currently full of freshly mixed soil/manure/vermiculite waiting for me to transplant some new seedlings.
Next on the garden/seasonal preparedness list is to sharpen all the tools. My tools are dull and that will make every task seem harder, so I'll ask my husband to sharpen them this weekend. He does a great job with his grinder and a file getting a nice sharp edge.
On to tractors! Our 14 year old daughter and my husband are working to get the big diesel John Deere tractor switched over from snow thrower mode to grass cutting mode. They are changing the oil and lubing it up plus installing the cutting deck and rear bagger. The small red tractor is in the garage for maintenance, too. It's belt driven and needs those belts replaced because as they age they crack and get brittle. We don't want a belt to break when we are in the middle of a big job, effectively grinding all progress to a screeching halt. The small tractor is what we use for tilling the garden and also to till between our tree lines to keep weeds at bay. It's needs a paint job, but it's a good little workhorse!
