    Db1486 looks like you guys have been going hard on the haying with all the equipment lined up. Nice to get it up in good condition at least. Guys are just getting going around here it seems. Some cut a bit a week or so ago but got caught on a rain. Haven't taken any pics of our little oat patch but they're pretty much all headed out now and starting to fill. Got a little bit of milk in them now. Was out touring around from field to field tonight on the quad and snapped a few pictures. Some turned out pretty good I thought. First 3 pics are on our sandy quarter. Some places are pure sand where absolutely nothing will grow. It's real fine sand.

    Getting Buzzed Yesterday

    Was 6 planes and 2 helicopters flying out of the local airport here a week ago. Was a good week to have a spray plane lol. Not much going on right around our farm but they were sure going hard after the rain about 30 miles away. Had one plane buzzing the house the other day only one so far though. Fellow we know was spraying army worms in the canola last summer. We went out and did ours by ground but he happened to be spraying a field along the road while I was coming back home. I stopped at the intersection so he wouldn't have to dodge me as I was coming through. Snapped this pic of him while he was pulling up into the sun. I always get a kick out of watching them fly. Kind of a mini air show lol. I do have a lot of respect for them though. Not a easy job in my mind all what you're used to though I guess.

    Canola and wheat on the sand is doing pretty good after the rains too. One of the better looking canola crops we've grown on the sand there. It's almost pure sand there in the canola.

    Went and looked at the barley on my rented land. It's looking good so far. It's actually better then the barley at home. Little more even and slightly further advanced. Probably be the first we swath.

    Canola looks like it's filling in nicely Ralph. Looks like it's stretching upwards too Had another 3/4" of rain here yesterday everything's soaked up pretty good again took a couple ofmpics from out in the canola fields the other day they're starting to fill in now still some places where it's a bit patchy though should be solid yellow hopefully by the middle of next week

    We've got a few patches of alkali this year too where nothing will grow. Not even the weeds lol. It's odd through tyebslough where there was water it's good but going up the hillside on either side of it there's not much. Our canola looks patchy right now too as it's not all out in bloom yet. Getting more yellow every day though. Should be in full bloom before to long. Some of our canola didn't come back after it got drifted by roundup. Dumb neighbours wish they'd smarten up. It's not the money part of it l, it's thenoroncipal of it. Least this year it's not the money part. If it ever gets bad enough you can bet they'll get a bill. Cereals are charging right along here now after the rain. Spray planes have been going steady.

    lol yup you're gona have to buy a selfie stick lol. Our garden corn is about knee high now. Just to the point where it should start to take off especially with the rain and heat we've had now. Was a scorcher here today. High was just shy of 90°F and the humidity was high all day as well. We were under a heat advisory here again. Was working in the shop on my truck and that's the first time I've seen the concrete sweat on the floor. Was almost like someone had poured water on it. Was trying to wax my truck and the wax wouldn't even dry. Took this pic of the wheat field last night it's doing pretty good for light soil

    I like touring old sites like that. Not much around here like it to see. Nice to see it's preserved for now anyways. Thats quite the haul and quite the job. Always nice when the money starts to roll in. Ours are basically just finishing blooming now. They didn't grow real well this summer for some reason. Still some nice blossoms on them but not as many as usual.

    It's the slightly new version of it. Mines a 1978 ts250. I bought it when I graduated in 02. Haven't been using it for years but I got it up and going this summer just for the heck of it.

    This is our so called super grid after the rain. Really went downhill this time after the rain. RM is sure slipping on maintenance.

    Wheat looks good to me Ralph. Ours is seeded on sandy soil and the lighter patches were suffering a bit before we got this rain. It was about a foot tall in the poor spots and heading out. Should be lots of moisture there now though to get it going. Rain gauge at home ended up at 2.7 inches before it was all done. Nice picture of the canola merc looks good in the sunset took these pics tonight out in some of the canola fields can't remember leaves this big on the canola before

    redturbo that canola looks to be about a week to 10 days ahead of ours. Ours was seeded around the 21st of may. Looks nice though. Our canola just seems to keep shooting up. Going to be awful tall if it keeps growing like it is. It's up to my knees now and still not really blooming. Looks like the first buds are about to start opening now though. Wheat heads are about half emerged now. Middle of next week it should be all headed out nicely. Had quite the rain here the last couple of days now. Siting at 2.3 inches. Actually got a little bit of water laying in some of the low spots.
