  1. If this country doesn’t grow a pair and start pushing back, it’s going to be here before we know it!!! I live in MN, and governor fat head has all but given this state away already!! Illegal sanctuary, taxes through the roof, 19 billion dollar surplus, but us tax payers didn’t get a dime back, tax cut, credit or anything, just higher taxes. If I could find 12-1800 acres in SD, or IA, I’d be gone from this state!! I’m tired of 3 spots in this state staying blue to dictate the rest of the state!
  2. You got lucky! Up in my area we are burning up faster than I’ve ever seen before! Mowed lawn only 3 times this spring, and the lawn looks like the end of a hot dry August. We have beans that won’t germinate, and the corn is at 2 leaf and turning that whitish blue from heat and dry! Last night and tonight both, can hear the thunder and smell the rain, but nothing happens!
  3. Wonderful news!!! Continued prayers from MN!!
  4. Definitely a straight, honest looking tractor! Congratulations!
  5. Getting dry in my area of MN as well! Mowed the lawn twice, and it’s already starting to get that whitish light blue look as it goes dormant in a drought.
  6. Almost looks like beach sand in that field! Nice looking country up there! We are really drying out in my part of MN!! We have some fields that may not germinate the beans until we get rain?! Some ground is so hard and dry it won’t break apart, baseball to softball size clods that just won’t break
  7. If you zoom in to this picture, you can see between Jovie’s front legs the plastic cup she got ice cream in from Dairy Queen. Apparently it was good enough to put her to sleep! Or maybe she is just like a kid, rip roaring and ready to go, but 5 miles down the road, out!
  8. Not a goldie, that was the first thing I looked for, no black dash.
  9. That’s great to hear that he is making some pretty good strides in recovery now!! Getting to eat food again has to be a huge accomplishment!!
  10. Better make sure they have a way to load it if it’s dead! I have a hard time buying things like this just in case they have no way to load it.
  11. The one line I received does not look right, so those repairs may end up getting our last 750 acres done, and worry about it this summer?! I’m not sure either? Luckily the 1 line had just the start of a pin hole, so if the super glue lasts for awhile, maybe the tape will get warm enough it will be impenetrable? If you’ve ever used flex seal tape, it is 100 times better than any brand of duct tape! And if the sticky sides touch, you just throw that piece away, you won’t get it apart!
  12. I shocked myself at how “professional” I made them!😅
  13. These new trucks are just that, aerodynamic motor homes! I’ll keep my old 03 KW junk!!
  14. This afternoon working up ground I noticed a fender getting wet ahead of the windshield on the 385. As soon as I opened the door to inspect I could smell fuel. Opened the hood and 2 plastic fuel lines had rubbed through. Called the dealership, no lines on hand, I needed to get the field done, so I came up with an idea, super glue, flex seal tape, and zip ties. It finished the day, and may have to run tomorrow like this until the lines are here to replace.
  15. We just keep missing the rain lately, now we are down for a 1/2 inch tomorrow and more on Monday, I guess we’ll see what happens. Today I went through a spot on one field I rent, that I haven’t farmed since I rented it 4 years ago, it’s normally standing water, today it was dry enough to pull the cultivator through and didn’t spin a tire!
  16. I don’t know anything about a Volvo other than very expensive to repair?! I’m not to impressed by the Paccar engines either, but yet others love them?! I’ll stick with my W900 and kitty cat!
  17. I don’t know much about a Volvo, but the guys in my area with them say, they are great trucks when on the road, but when in the shop, you must remember to bring the vaseline!!
  18. Not sure any tire is good anymore, I’ve never been impressed with the Michelin ag tires, and Firestones are to soft nowadays, they get stubble damage from grass it seems
  19. Hopefully with summer just around the corner that will bring on some big goals for Zach! Continued prayers for Zach and Emily from MN!
  20. In my area I’m going through most low spots pretty easily, which is shocking for how much snow and rain we’ve had this spring. But we are now starting to miss all the rain they’ve been predicting, so that’s kind of scary!
  21. It’s crazy to hear up in Canada, half done, but in east central MN we are just getting a good start! I thought you Canadians were further north than me? 🤣
  22. This line from Emily’s update, she seems like one tough cookie, with all she has been through to this point, I don’t agree with her saying that. She has had different struggles compared to Zach, but she’s been the rock holding everything together while Zach is fighting this to get better. I think Emily could whoop most of us!! Continued prayers for both Zach and Emily from MN!!!
