Oh yeah, I'd say any Dairy Queen "Brazier" would serve breakfast.!  We got the "Ultimate Hash Brown Breakfast", choice of Ham, sausage, or bacon.  A hash brown broken up, scrambled eggs laid on top, then a layer of cheese, and a splattering of small onion pieces......Ummm Good!  We shared a side of pancakes as well!

That sounds good! Glad you got some things taken care of, even if it was farm related. Gotta do what you can when you can!

I only spray for weeds on the sweet corn.  Same stuff as for field corn, gramoxone for kill down of life weeds, then Simazine for broadleaf preventive, and Atrazine for grass preventive.

Just got the Massey 1655D out & used it's loader to go out near the calf feeders & scrape up some good soil for Teresa's concrete planters we bought the other day.  Now she needs to get some flowers in there!

Sounds like you had a very busy day off and got a lot done that you needed to get done.

Heavy dew this morning & no sunshine.  Not sure when I can start raking hay.  If it's noon or after, it's gonna make for a long day rolling, but it needs done if at all possible.  High rain chance tomorrow, then lighter chances the rest of the week.

Never any sunshine. I tried rolling...10 bales, but wrapped the collector shaft 4 times.  Almost 2 hours.  Last time I called it quits...just too damp to roll.  Now rain the next few days.   :wallbanging:

If it stays wet the 4 days of predicted rain chances, it won't do the hay any favors, but it will still be decent feed.  Once the rain stops, we'll bust it all up with the tedder to get it dry asap.  I may take a break, then go try it again, but in the other field where it might be drier.  I was just so shot from clearing the shaft that I came on in.  I thought the last time it had bent the guide bars, but once we cut the mess of hay off the roller, I seen they were just entangled in the hay, and once we pulled the bars out, they sprang back into place.

I posted the last post, and just 10 minutes later the sun pops out full force!  I headed back to the field and rolled 70 more rolls, for a total of 80 today.  Just got done 30 minutes ago.  I took maybe 10 minutes for breakfast, 15 or so for lunch, and the 15 or so minutes when I thought I was done due to damp hay.  My last 3 work days have been 15, 13, and 14 hours.  No wonder my knees are giving me fits.  Way too tired to rake the other 2 fields, which will make another 50 or more bales.  Both have spots I know aren't cured, and no time to tedder & bale today anyway.  Had problems sleeping last night, so done today on 3 to 4 hours sleep.  I bet I fall asleep easy tonight though.

  Herd vet check tomorrow.  Sure hope it does rain....it's getting dry as a bone here.

Glad you got some hay rolled! Hope you get several cuttings this year! I'm wore out too, been screwing sheetrock to ceilings all day!

Man, I can't handle much of anything overhead due to my shoulders.  Doing overhead work causes me serious pain.  I still of course have to at times, but I have to do it in spurts, then lower my arms fast.

Oh, and we also have some pasture in the back 40 we will cut & roll soon as we can find the time.  Likely get 30 more rolls back there at least.  But steep as heck back there too.  But we're low on hay, so we gotta do what we gotta do.

I can only do that for a while, then have to rest the arms and shoulders. Otherwise, my arms will just lose all strength!
