what a weekend
« on: August 28, 2016, 06:09:11 PM »
I left the house at 6 AM to time my fertilizer pick-up. I called Wednesday to order it and seed up north. neither had my order ready. I had to help bag both. by the time I had everything to the cabin it was 1:30. I was way behind. it took 5 trips to get everything in via ATV

I got 1/2 of the top field done and a bearing on one gang of discs went out. I took it off and had a gang of 4 discs to complete the 4 acres I needed to plant. it wasn't bad on the 2 fields I could turn last weekend, but the wet/tall field was ugly. 6 hours later I had that field done. it wasn't great, but i'm all in. with all the problems this year, it was definitely the worst prep I've ever had. I planted 3 acres of winter wheat and an acre of radishes(even though it's too late) we'll see. maybe it will all be fine, but it wasn't the way I normally plant

I did see a doe w/ 2 fawns. she is probably the same one as in years past. one heck of a mother to keep 2 up there. most can keep one alive. it was a blast watching the kids run around for an hour. I have no idea how they don't break a leg

it was a hard weekend. long trip up. broken equipment and terrible traffic home. I need a break. glad it's done

A lot of sweat goes into this - something the non-hunters just don't realize, and certainly don't appreciate when their food hits their plate.  Hang in there Yari, enjoy the fruits of your labor soon!

that's a rough weekend, I held off planting two new plots on my new farm, I did plant one on my grandmas where they took dirt of a hilltop for road construction. We hadn't been getting any rain and now since I planted the one I think we have had like 3 inches or more in the last two weeks, wish I would have done the other two now.  I felt now I was getting too late in the year, but you planted so maybe I could have as well.

Sounds like a hard weekend of work but hopefully it will pay off in the end for you. Look at the bright side any day in the field is better than being at work.

Sounds like you had a lot of Fun - - - - NOT.

But you did Git'er Done - Good on you!

Did my plots Saturday and was worried about rain, been dry for a week.  Got a light bit Saturday afternoon and checked it at 07:00 Sunday morning and chased off 5 deer, 3 of which were young bucks.  Then got 1/10 inch Sunday afternoon, feeling better.

NWIA- look at the planting dates. down there, you can still plant just about anything. i'm late on the radishes, but plenty of time for wheat or rye

thx all. it's good to be done. like sundowner said, a few weeks ago I didn't think I would even get in. now I need a good soaker
