The thumb Hurts but it's healing thanks guys. I am glad to be working on the farm once again for sure, especially in the new shop! But got to tell ya 20 yrs up in a crane has sure made me a bit lazy and full of sweat lol, that haybine kicked my butt! Had a great time though working with Grandpa and Daniel and cousin Josh.Hard work and a lot of fun. Now its time for supper and a couple pain killers, then a drink! :beer:

I took the discbine out again & broke open the alfalfa field, then turned around & cut the outside swath.  I plan to put someone else in it tomorrow while I try to spray around with "kill everything spray" where things should NOT be growing.  It's easy to hang a fence while doing the outside of a hayfield, so I figured I'd take that risk out of the equation.  Discbine is working SUPER!  Once I opened the field, I was gonna call it a day, but I found Teresa push mowing the yard around the house, and I heard that little engine bogging down, so I finished mowing with the John Deere 430.  Just got in from a 13hr day.  Got a LOT done though, so tomorrow I hope to not have to push it so hard.  Might be a while before I feel up to it, so tomorrow evening I'll take Teresa out for supper somewhere.  I can eat till midnight, so surely I'll have the time to take her out!

Been cutting hay today, but the lift cylinder hose blew on the discbine, and I didn't have the needed fittings to rig on a hose.  So I told Josh just to finish cutting, as he can cut without the lift, as the cutter will go right through already cut hay to get out of the field.  I was gonna have Craig cut some, but I think he felt better with Josh doing it since the hose was blown.  Craig is taking fence wire down from around the former dry cow field.  I went to town & got the Sudex seed that one of them will drill into the dry field once the hay is up.  I may not get my spraying of weed killer done today, as time is ticking away.

Sounds like you have been busy getting everything caught up best you can before tomorrow. I just got caught up on your thread, been a week since I last read anything on here.

 

You need to rest all you can today so tomorrow your not so worn out.

As Josh finished cutting hay, I took the other Massey 2745 out to Dad's & got the seed drill.  Cleaned out old wheat seed, then filled with Sudex (sorghum/Sudan grass cross).  I made 3 passes around the 8 acre field, then Craig took over so Teresa & I can go out for a nice meal before surgery tomorrow.  Craig has taken down a lot of fence wire today, and I know he's tired.  We should all sleep well tonight!  I sure will hate not being able to work for a while.  I got as much as I possibly could done beforehand.
