Thanks for brining it back to the top Dale, saves me from going looking for it lol. I was out tonight and took a few pictures. Didn’t take any of the canola as I was checking  for armyworms and didn’t have my phone with me. 

Barley is getting very close now. Potentially end of next week if the weather cooperates. It’s coming on quick anyways. If it heats up outside it won’t take long. Wheat is a couple weeks away yet for sure. Maybe 3 depending on the weather. Canola is probably 2-3 weeks away from swathing yet. 

Still working on equipment yet so harvest can’t happen for a little bit yet lol. Got the old weather basically done. Have the new one at the shop going over it now and checking everything. I don’t think the 2188 needs much bit I have a few things to do to the Massey yet. Hopefully make a good hole in it tomorrow. 

Forst pic is the barley, second and 3rd is the Brandon wheat, 4th is some sort of different variety coming in the wheat. Maybe it is Brandon wheat too, I’m not sure. The heads are huge on them though. Close to 6 inches long.

Took off at 8:00 the other night on my quad after work and went for a little ride. Hadn’t been up to the river yet this summer since the snow has gone. Days are definitely getting shorter now, 8:45 is sunset now or even a little bit earlier. I got home about 10:00 and it was pitch black out anyways. Little bit of light from the moon but nothing for daylight anymore. 

Was quite the ride for wildlife and I swear they were all out to get me lol  one coyote pup almost got under me at about 50 mph and two spruce grouse flew up right infront of me on the bush trails  the one I thought I was going to hit for sure l, I put my hand out to swat it away but it managed to swerve and miss me just barely

Same here some early wheat combined but harvest will start in earnest next week. Another neighbor had 2,row malt barley he combined before rain on Sunday night and yesterday. Early crop is okay but later stuff is better.

we'll be awhile yet spray the peas tomorrow then that's atleast 5-6 days away from trying combining, so just tinkering away, cleaning bins,final check overs etc even then i'm usually never ready ready always something I miss 

 

some heat would almost be nice to bring things quicker, I think swathing canola and combining peas are gonna happen at the same time again

We haven’t had much rain in the past month or so, so really not sure how this is possible.  New fields I rented this year that’s sandy soil, planted June 13th (yikes that’s late!!), so was vey skeptical at getting much of a crop off it.  If the kernels fill out on the cobs as good as the stalks have grown, I’ll be smiling come November!  Now that we have had a little rain the beans are starting to look healthier too thankfully!

I’m 6’ tall and it’s still growing!!!

Wheatking are you in the 306 farm group page? Possibly the same photos I was looking at this morning too and wondering.  It didn’t freeze here as far as I can tell. Tonight there’s a frost advisory though. There was frost over between battleford and meadow lake as well. Facebook friend said it froze there again. 

Sure don’t need a frost yet that’s for sure. Could use another couple weeks yet for the canola. It’s jist starting to turn now a little bit. Got a ways to go yet that’s for sure.

I was expecting it but nothing here. It was sure cool last night. I dont think it got too much below 10°, but then I never got up early today either lol. If we can get to the end of August we will have had two frost free months this year lol

lol yes it gets a little tiresome some days. See the odd deal pop up on there though and like you say there is some useful info from time to time. I don’t post a lot on there but ask the odd question once I’m a while. Ended up with a big discussion last spring when I asked about lock n lube grease couplers stupid thing went on for 3 or 4 days lol. Got my answer anyways and I do own one now lol.

Record low temps set on Saturday night in Sask. Cool again last night but not quite as bad. Guess the carbon tax is working already.

We’ll be swathing shortly I think if the weather cooperates. Maybe tomorrow or the next day I’ll go open the field up.

The wheat is coming along as well. Heads are ripening off more then the straw so far. I picked a few heads a week ago and thrashed them out in the house. It was still pretty green then yet but the wheat actually looks fairly good so hopefully that’s a good sign.

golly your wheat looks ahead of mine I haven't checked any for a few days now but was a hard dough, I think peas harvest will start Monday, I have to go in and get a wisdom tooth out Friday so hope to recover on the weekend and giv'er next week

That was siting in the house for a week so it’s not representative of the field but I was surprised at how little it shrunk. It was quite doughy when I picked the heads and didn’t know what to expect really. Let them air dry in the house and that was the outcome. Would be nice to get some number 1 off for a change. We haven’t grown much wheat for a while now but it was a battle before that’s for sure. Have 1 quarter in this year and hopefully it turns out good. 

Not much for action around here yet. Within the next week there will be a lot of things going on though. Saw one swather going today on barley but that was it. It was actually greener then ours. Had a lot of green down under the canopy as well.

Guys are wrapping up barley around here. Some canola being swathed but not alot yet. Most wheat looks to be dessicated now, and there is a few guys going on it. Peas are coming off but I havent heard  what they're like. They look really nice this year from the road lol. About 50 miles to the southeast alot of wheat has been taken off and straw baled already. It's been pretty nice harvest weather so far. Maybe by the end of next week we will start trying things out and see what happens. Got too much else to do this week yet

The first canola swathed here was by me today. By calendar days it should have been past ready but in fact, it is some of the greenest canola I have ever cut. Might be lucky and it will ripen in the swath without too much green count or shrivelling. Supposed to be showers the next few days so that should help. Have to say it is a variable crop. Heavy enough in spots but some patches are solid weeds and hard to see any canola. It needed that second shot of glyphosate that it never got.

I guess our oats are ready to go down now. But the swather is not ready. And they're calling for rain all weekend, so it can stay standing lol

Guys are starting to get rolling on the wheat pretty good now. I dont think its dry though. Dryers are running already, which seems crazy since it's still August, but I guess after last year, no one wants to take any chances lol. We only got the first week of September then that was it. Don't need a repeat of that!

Wow that is green yet. Alot of the reseeded canola is still green but most is turning nice already. Or burning maybe. I see alot of guys swath when it's dark green. We did a little bit a few times like that and it just shrivels up too bad. We try to wait till it starts shelling then swath in the dew or rain.

We got some that the weeds came in bad after spraying as well. So you're not alone

Got the combine going yesterday . This field is 300 acres. It was our first seeded and I think poorest looking field but is 1/2, our wheat acres . It got cold and hilltops are thin but low spots are excellent. The photos are just the best spots so it is somewhat staged. I think field will avg right around 50 to 52 bpa. Last year the back half of this section was wheat. Section is 578 acres tillable so we split it in half . But last years wheat was around 60 bpa.
