Vanessa Conquers the Ancient Disc Harrow

This vintage disc harrow had two sections to it and was completely sunken into the earth at HOWL. Vanessa dug it out, separated it into the two sections and then repaired one to get my garden plowed up.


The disc harrow in parts.


Vanessa scavenges for metal along the rock walls.


Mounted on the tractor.


Ready to go!


The finished product...the garden is ready to plant!
