Well, between the doggy in "rehab", the ocassional tornado, holidays, this year's "Kids Day on the Farm", doctor appointments, catching chickens, dumping chickens, a family reunion at our house, planting our garden, and some yardwork, I'm way behind on my blogging! Since most of that is behind me and things will be slowing down (I hope!) for a while, hopefully I can catch up!
Anyways, here's whats been happening on the farm!
We finished "burn down,"
Which basically means we sprayed all the weeds in the field.
We're working on getting our drystack cleaned out...
and all our chicken litter spread.
Thanks to the rain we've been having, getting stuck is a common occurence around here.
We finally finished planting all of our corn.
We only planted 98 acres of corn because we're not big grain farmers. We normally only plant corn in our fields that aren't suitable for cotton or peanuts.
This is the first year Lance is using his new 8-row planter, so of course I had to ride to check it out.
For a while there, I think we blew every hydraulic line, had a leak in every tank, and had about 300 flat tires. Maybe not that many.
Now we're on to planting cotton and peanuts! I think we're aiming for 160 acres of peanuts and 700 acres of cotton. We've got a long ways to go and a short time to get there,
I'm eastbound just watch ol' Bandit run...uh, I mean, wish us luck!
