cabin work
« on: July 02, 2016, 01:57:17 PM »
I'm going to start referring to my cabin as ol muddy. I had 2" in the last 2 weeks and another 1" when I was cutting my WTI clover. I got hammered trying to beat the rain. w/ 10 minutes left it exploded. I couldn't see 40 yards ahead. and then the hail came. 400 yards later I was in the shed and the hail was deafening on the metal roof. lucky it was only pea sized. I had a 12" pile outside where it ran off the roof that remained until the next morning.

I still couldn't work my new field. a sinkhole showed up though. It took 3 wheel barrows to fill it in.

I spot sprayed 4 fields. I did pretty well 2 weeks ago on the 1st application.

I took soil/mud sample to send to our friends at WTI.

my next trip will be after my LOTW musky trip. that will be a lot of work. I plan to plant all 4 fields weather permitting

I saw 5 does and 0 fawns. I hope they didn't lose them all. it's so hard to survive up there

It's a lot of work, but it will pay off in time.

We would like to have some of your rain.

Have fun on your fishing trip! ^^&&$%GT   @--0--0101

I'll gladly take some of that rain. My yard is pretty much toast and has been for weeks.

I agree. I've had concrete at this time of the year before.  .

my home was dry and it's just pouring. possible flooding and a nice light show. it's feast or famine

Just spent the weekend down with family on Bull Shoals lake.  Got a lot of rain Sat & Sun down there (several inches) and the clay mud was just rolling in from all of the creeks.  Got home a couple of hours ago - we had a quarter inch over that span.  Really starting to dry out here - need a bunch of rain to get caught back up.  Corn is doing OK, but a lot of the beans look really poor.
One of God's greatest gifts to us is
the great outdoors - get out there
and enjoy it!
