Man what a view! That’s what I call miles and miles of miles and miles!

You can watch your dog run away, for days?

We’ve planted Garst and then Syngenta for years and they no longer give out packets of sweet corn. It’s nice to see that Pioneer still does. 

  It's been many years since Pioneer gave out sweet corn at least where I was concerned.

☹️  My dealer throws a big party every year, gives us hats and T-shirts,sweetcorn seed,  delivers the field corn seed  and offers a discount if you pay before January first. 
 

But so do all the other dealers in this area.

Yeah, it's hard to call it a 'cold' front but welcome anyway.

Maybe a less hot front?

 

Come on up north. Calling for a low of 37-42°F depending on who you listen to. One radio station was saying a risk of frost tonight. That would be a first for me that I can remember.

That sounds really nice.

A few years ago we went up and drove around the bottom of lake superior in late August and early September. It was so nice...

Got the combine out this afternoon so the fun can begin on repairs I guess. Have to do the rear main seal and the pto seal plus what ever else we may find once we get into it. Be a little bit before I get it all torn down but need to get started on it pretty quick so I can have it finished up by the end of the month hopefully. 
 

Went out crop checking my canola tonight. No sign of grasshoppers yet so hopefully I’ll be ok there. Crops looking decent but it’s really up and down in height depending on how much moisture there was. Some spots it’s knee high and others it’s almost up to my neck.  Overall a decent looking crop yet so hopefully it fills out and makes a average crop at least. 
 

Blueberries are showing up in the bush now too. Seems to be a little early kind of like everything else this year. Mother Nature usually knows best so maybe it’s going to be a early fall or winter. Time Will tell I guess.

We got in to some pretty decent Soft Red Winter Wheat today. 70 bpa is pretty good for us. No elevators have been open since Saturday, so we have been putting it in the bin.

Sure makes it a lot more fun in the combine when it’s running like that. Never grown winter wheat before but for hard red. spring wheat 70 is a pretty good yield for us too. Last year was the best wheat crop we’ve ever grown and it was just over 70 bpa.

We give most of ours away as well. 10 or 20 years ago people (friends and relatives)  would ask if they could come and pick some. Now they tell you you have the best corn around, -and ask if you could Bring them some.
 Red, red,red,red,red,white and blue

Hay is pretty thin in this field.

From what I've read I am in one of the few areas of the province where crops are not suffering from lack of moisture. Some early canola fields are really blooming while some later ones have not started. Early wheat well headed but my last two fields are not quite there yet. I took this shot this morning. The neighbour's canola fields are a lot closer than mine and look better as well.

You’re fortunate Ralph. There’s a lot of places worse off that’s for sure. We’re not a write off yet but if we don’t get any rain in the next few weeks harvest is going to be pretty sad I think. There’s not enough moisture in the ground to finish the crop off.  Hoppers are still persisting even after we sprayed too. Had the girl we bought the chem from out tonight to look at it again. The hoppers are slowing up and not acting like they normally would but there’s a lot more moving yet then I’d like to see.  Giving it a few more days then going back in to have another look. May end up respraying some again. 
 

I had the drone up a few times in the last week as well checking things over.  One strip where I ran out of fertilizer sure shows up. Pretty sure I ram out of granular there. Not positive but that would make sense.  Garden needs to be filled again before long too. Starting to get to be a few weeds again. Potatoes are starting to fill in the blank spots. Strawberries are pretty much done now. Wasn’t a great crop but better then last year. Corns on the left side, it hasn’t started to tassel yet. Little behind time maybe. Raspberries are going nuts as usual and trying to take the garden over lol.  Peas are almost filled now. Mom went and robbed a few fresh potatoes the other day. I’m not a big fan of them but everyone else is it seems lol.
