I just finally got to the end of your journal, looks like you have done a ton to your property! My in-laws have that kind of soil, can barely dig without hitting a rock; I'm hoping my new place isn't the same but we haven't had to dig yet.

Did you ever figure out what caused your garden tractor to not turn on intermittently? I'm sorry if I missed it. I was wondering if it's because you weren't sitting in the seat when you tried to turn it on. Some tractors/mowers have a "safety feature" to prevent operator injury and won't start/change gears or will even shut off if the person doesn't stay seated.

Not a safety switch issue. After taking the starter out (incorrectly at first, it is a royal PITA to get the brushes backed out and the commutator put back in place!) it worked. I guess the starter somehow "froze". Maybe I could have just smacked it with a hammer or something.

I hope you have rocks only where you want them!
