Field progress....finally!


Recommended Posts

Dad side dressed one tank full and sprayed a triangle shaped piece of corn on the old calving pasture while I was at work.  Hard work on a 100 degree day! 

I ran until 10:40 last night and applied 3 more loads of nitrogen.  Nearly emptied our bulk tank, so COOP will deliver more today.  Beautiful night to be out in the field: lightning flashing to the northwest and the moon to the east.  I wanted to keep going just in case I was rained out today.  Corn is growing so fast!

Finished feeding the corn nitrogen last night at 9:45.  Lightning flashing in the sky east of me from a pop up storm.  It never rained at my place.  I was able to work all week,  rain has not been an issue.   My sister had 5 inches at her place in Boone!  

Now, time to finish spraying the corn. Then the soybeans.   The sprayer takes 12 rows, so that helps!

I have some respraying to do ASAP once I take the floaters off and return to 14.9-46 .  They just got sprayer programmed on a different satellite yesterday as the one that it was on is out of commission

We've been busy the last few weeks. Got our nitrogen sidedressed. We finished a week ago today. Didn't get any pictures of us knifing Annhydrous Ammonia. 

We been trying to do first cutting hay since the end of May. Did 1 12 8acre field Memorial day. We sprayed it off and planted soybeans because our new seeding took off with flying colors. Then we have monkeyed around with the weather until this week. Rained Monday but since then it's been off to the races bailing hay. Done 23 acres in 3 days. 3/4 of it in small squares. 

Some pictures of the last few days. Yeah we are using a big enough tractor on the round baler but it wasn't hooked to anything and we didn't have to unkook

Finished spraying the corn this evening.   Feels good to be done.  Gave the sprayer a preliminary rinse before I called it a night.20220618_113944.thumb.jpg.2b6348d901d04739a9ced730d5995b29.jpg

good progress this week. Now it’s going to rain for the better part of two weeks.  Machines sat still for 30 days last year in July when it started raining and never stopped. Fingers crossed that doesn’t happen again. 2F18B4EB-19B0-412C-A664-F4EEE80FC1AA.thumb.jpeg.e531585baece4e1014ae85cdc42f5e1f.jpegE0A80FB8-98BE-442A-AE4B-9C32327A81AE.thumb.jpeg.b626797f778d736fbfd941f555c10926.jpeg0D80C9F8-6D30-4248-9629-6E1411E6B556.thumb.png.39fd4d90d18affdb467c5c9183860e11.png4EC19BDC-695C-4BFD-8C53-4DE00478944A.thumb.jpeg.adcc58b6793c3d66e4495f55e293a364.jpeg

  Very little rain in the forecast by Rochester, NY.  Things wound up going in late this past spring so this is not going to be good news.

I’m planting double crop beans tonight. The wheat was below average here. We baled all the straw, but it was thin. 55F0CA55-4B26-4A61-93BA-A2102D5BF1AB.thumb.jpeg.c1974205d2e04ef244c19b4ba07029ee.jpeg

Here a couple of pictures of some IH tractors parked along the field to make up for the green one planting.

Momma don't get upset for parking the trailer in her yard?

And, one of these days, your son is going to think, "I saw Daddy do this", and walk over and crank open the trap on your trailer.

No one lives in that house anymore. Was my Grandparents house and it's been empty since spring of 2016. They are both long dead now. Grandpa in July of 2014 and Grandma in August of 2018. As I've said before they will be throwing snowballs in H-ll and eating snow cones before we will ever rent a house again. It needs to be torn down. It just hasn't happened yet. 

Be nice when he does that. Saves me from having to jump in and out😆😅. Another version of the gate boy.

Only reason truck is there is the lane through the cow lot is muddy and the gateway directly to the road is so steep thanks to the county road department that I would bottom out and tear stuff up

Still dry here. Never did rain much, under a tenth of an inch,  some chance of the same today and tomorrow. Can’t make Hay at any chance of a shower though, so we are parked. 
(Oh, and Bales don’t actually get carried Up a ladder….for you guys that are fortunate enough to have never touched a small square bale).

I hate groundhogs.  I go around and fill in the holes between cuttings of hay. 78F7FB15-7F00-4381-93FC-73344CD9FE96.thumb.png.66f94843429ead13ef611ddcafb861dd.pngAA1B7843-3588-4302-A671-847B1A17A528.thumb.jpeg.7c96ff657b5e792bc288d6595392f93f.jpeg268573CB-41FC-42AD-B00C-E0EF5625F9AB.thumb.jpeg.91fcbd14227032f60bb9d380c3e484b8.jpeg

I've stacked A LOT of small squares in my life.  But I've never stacked them inside a van trailer.  That's a great use of space but it looks like a lot of work!

Your explanation has been found to be satisfactory and acceptable, therefore you are absolved of any perceived sin.  Go in peace, and prosper.

The 856 started flawlessly all spring.   Sat for a week after I finished spraying.   Batteries were dead.   They were 8 years old by the date codes!  So, a new pair was installed.   

The last of old crop corn and soybeans have been hauled to town.    

Mowed a few waterways this week.  Too hot for much else!

Weeds are dead in the bean fields.  Looking better!

Need a good rain. Very dry here.
