    The Ghetto isn't a fun place to farm.

    The last time I checked I think we had 1.66 inches of rain since April 1. But the cumulative total includes even the smallest amounts that almost don't count(Grassy). I know that's more than some areas received and am greatful for it, there were some shots in that total that made a difference. Reply With Quote

    Finally got done with the drill today and finished off with barley. It got a shot of rain yesterday and today so there should be enough there to germinate at least.



    The calf crop is doing great and we got 237 pairs hauled out today. Much happier on grass today compared to the last 200 days of silage. Hopefully the rain keeps up so they can feed themselves vs the labor intensive option.



    Whenever the grass does run out this years experiment will become cow chow. This field was grass a few weeks ago and the corn is coming up nicely. Planning on grazing and swath grazing it with high expectations on saving labor / time.

    Hopefully Mother Nature play nice with me in the sandbox this year. 🍀 Reply With Quote

    Half the canola is doing ok but still thin spots. Enough to fill in.

    Late fields and worked last fall not so good.

    Some times your the bug some times the window.

    The bug. Reply With Quote

  • Jun 6, 2019 | 12:34 18 It’s amazing that any crop is still standing with this drying wind every day. Should have seeded wall to wall lentils I guess. The farmer around here who burns Canary black to seed lentils, harrows and packs after seeding and has beautiful lentils. Time will tell. An inch of rain changes everything - fingers crossed.
