I sure hope so, but if it ever warms, then it'll be time to start planting corn.  Way too cool yet though.  Night temps in the 30's still.  Need to get the planter & sprayer out after we finish manure & get them all checked out & ready for action.

All no-till, except for the field plowed at the plow day.  No mechanical cultivating either.  We come back after corn is 18" or so high, and reapply Roundup to burn down surviving weeds from the first chemical application.  We use all "Roundup Ready" corn seed.

  We used to plow most every year, then disc, and follow with mechanical cultivation.  We'd never get all that done these days.  And talk about a huge expense if we did!  We'd burn a thousand or more gallons of additional diesel.

You southern boys are normally planting corn by now ain't you? Or atleast only a few weeks away from strating. We had snow flying up here yesterday, and the day before. I'm sick of seeing snow!

Normally we are just about to start, but not seen any corn being planted yet, but next week will see a lot of corn planters hitting the fields, likely ours too.

  We finished emptying the manure pit yesterday, and I started some chisel plowing today.  Some of these fields are so compacted from the years of manure hauling, etc, so I'm busting it up in the worst places.  

  Yesterday as I hauled one of my last loads of manure, the neighbor lady flagged me down.  It was horribly windy, and when she got out of her car to fetch stuff from her back seat, the wind blew her door shut & it auto-locked.  Extra car keys in the house, but her house keys were locked in the car!  She had a coat hanger but she couldn't pry the door out quite enough.  I pried it out a bit further, then blocked it with a piece of wood.  Coat hanger was too flimsy to push the button.  I remembered a 3' piece of 1/4" steel smooth rod was in the cab of my tractor.....why it was there I have no idea, but I had just noticed it in the cab earlier in the day.  Well, ran to the cab & got the rod, bent it a bit, and got her doors unlocked!  My good deed for the day.

  Today was just milking this morning, chiseling 6 hours, feeding silage, and now talking to you guys.

Glad you got her door open, Daniel. Guess we'll forgo your new name for a while now, Honorable Poo!

HOrray for being a competent thief LOL. I had a cop one watch me working on unlocking his steering column that had no keys for it. He told me he knew I wasn't a thief cause tit took me way to long.

Milked the cows, now I'm chisel plowing all day to get as much done before the rains get here overnight.  The field I planned to have the plow day this Fall....well I went a couple rounds around it, and it's the toughest, hardest packed field yet, so it's all getting chiseled now, then if all works out, we'll plow it again this fall.

Yeah, it looks like you're going to get rained on down there too.

That's a darn big system moving across the screen.
