How wet did we all get?

Sep 10, 2019 | 06:53 1 Inch here yesterday, real soaker. Looks like another one coming tomorrow. Going to be sometime before harvest resumes. Heard of early durum already called a 2 and 3 due to weight issues. NO 1 you need 63.3 lbs, what kind of joke is that? Reply With Quote

    Ya right....

    28-32° heat
    35-50 km per hour incessant winds
    17-30% relative humidity

    Seems to be normal spring weather in Ghetto Central.
    Perfect for moisture retention and establishing crops! Reply With Quote

  • Sep 10, 2019 | 08:35 9 20mm here so far. Still socked in. My stagey Barley I swathed is super soaked now ... been every other year of crap harvest weather in September lately. 2014 we were under 8 inches of snow now. Ugh. Reply With Quote

    I will bet dollars to donuts we will be mucking them in. There is a lot of subsoil moisture here now. Right back to 2016 levels. Better harrow it flat. Reply With Quote
    SASKFARMER's Avatar Sep 10, 2019 | 09:05 12 It’s still raining but maybe lucked out so far as we only got 1/2 inch at yard. South of town 3/4 and west almost a inch. It’s real wet.ugly Reply With Quote

    Don’t forget to book and pay for canola seed as it is the best time to take advantage of early book specials. 🤣🤣 Reply With Quote

  • Sep 10, 2019 | 09:17 14 I’m sorry. I cut hay Friday. It’s all my fault. First cut hay. Been brutal making hay in this garbage weather.

    A bit of barley combined around here so far. Lots of peas out yet. The three fields of even canola in 5000 square miles is getting cut.

    Wheat and oats need a month to mature, two weeks frost free at least. Along with lots of canola fields.

    What a strange place we live, and what a way to try and make a living! Reply With Quote
    Sep 10, 2019 | 09:25 15 1.10 again, 6.66 since Aug 10th
    Standing water in fields, now have to find, and straight cut around,,, or else.
    75% of wheat, and 85% of durum still in the field, I'd say more than half of which was dead ripe or sprayed and will be severely damaged. Slow rain yesterday, soaking those heads all day and night, misty and foggy this morning. 75-80% of pulses done, what's left maybe completely gone now.
    More rain forecast. Reply With Quote

    Sep 10, 2019 | 09:53 17 An inch here in RRV, pretty much only corn, soys and some canola left. Most canola done as are edibles. Reply With Quote
    farmaholic's Avatar Sep 10, 2019 | 10:26 18 Conditions here are brutal. Waves of drizzle that radar isn't even picking up.
    A true " soaker". Combined wheat until 4:30 a.m. the morning of this systems arrival....we did our part!

    Swathed our canola in drizzly rain yesterday, we did our part.

    Make all the plans you want but you can't plan the outcome.

    Our wheat is getting washed. Canola and flax are kinda moisture proof in the swath or standing(but not moisture proof in the bin). Our yellow mustard will be rimey.

    Just glad we got off what we did....pushed it. The wheat is almost dry to about 16.5. Reply With Quote

    Sammy Davis left nut.

    But you shoulda seen how wet it was here in the eighties. Tons of dirt rearranged since then, and laser levelling done. When the settlers came here this was a swamp. You had to use the first naitions trails to go anywhere. Reply With Quote
    SASKFARMER's Avatar Sep 10, 2019 | 14:56 22 Total rain is .75 of an inch up till now. But its still mist. Reply With Quote
    Sep 10, 2019 | 15:04 23 It ain’t all sunny ways! She can get damn wet and ruts from one end to the other. Just been a bit warmer on this side of the prairies for a change. Sister in Sherwood Park said it’s been an awful summer. Cold and wet. We can be like that to with a shit ton of mosquitoes. Dauphin threw the Interlake has been damn dry. Cattle guys looking for feed which isn’t normal around there. Usually their cows wear life jackets. Next year could be a whole different story. Reply With Quote
    Sep 10, 2019 | 17:28 24 Dry most of the summer and at least it isnt changing now. Haven't looked at the gauge but I doubt we have a tenth. One warm morning and we will be back at it if this is all we get and its looking like it will be. Reply With Quote

    About the same here , but things are soaked. May need an extra day here to get rolling . Canola will be first to go for us here. Reply With Quote

    Lots of the land already worked black too. Reply With Quote
    Sep 10, 2019 | 20:53 27 Another useless tenth,not 5"s in total for year yet.Guys were tired time for break,be back at it in no time. Reply With Quote
    Sep 10, 2019 | 22:43 28 About an inch here so far and still drizzling. Just started looking at the combines and swather since it’s still weeks away yet anyway. Within an hour of here there’s a couple of fields of peas done and that’s it. Neighbours peas are still the same colour as on the Green Giant can. Forecast looks like we better book propane for the dryer since it’s going to be a “hot” commodity .................. again. First cut hay is still getting washed standing and in swathes here too.

    I’ve accepted that we aren’t going to get the crop off ........ if we do it’ll be a battle just like the last three years.

    At least we got lots of cow chow ............. just wish we had some crop to sell but the yearlings will hopefully be enough to scratch through to next year.



    Never went camping or tubing down the pembina river since it was too high and cold all summer. Maybe next year🤞 Reply With Quote
