The corn looks happy today

Recommended Posts

Got about 1.1" of rain last night/this morning. Was getting powerful dry here. Some corn only about 6" tall was starting to curl already. I didn't even see them sneak this into the forecast but will take it! Should germinate a bunch of beans sitting in dry dirt too.

In unrelated news; Went to Ankeny to pick up 5 gallons of gas for the H, boy, they don't give that stuff away!

Yup we needed the rain. Bad timing to have hay down on my part tho......🤦‍♂️ Fil said 2" when I talked to him a few min ago.

VP 110 octane, was a bit more than you quoted. I will check into the av gas. Previous owner used Cam2 108. This was as close as I could get.

OK, why do you need that gas in an H? Just curious.

Well, it’s rather high compression. It might run on something lower, I don’t know. Will have to experiment some.

Avgas? Runs from $5.28 to $8.50 around here.

Pretty fortunate here 10 mile up the road over the border in NH I can buy 91 no alcohol gas at the Sunoco at the pump it’s still over 4$ a gallon now but convenient enough that I put in the old tractors just for the shelf life not the octane

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!
