Took another load of scrap metal off today. It's been sitting on the trailer for a month, waiting for a chance to be taken off. Today was finally to where I could. Rained almost 3" overnight, so no field work today.
It was old scrap my son dumped a long a gully as he couldn't reach the gully for the briers. I was cleaning the edges of the field before planting, so I loaded it up.
Scrap dropped $10/ton, but is still great at $240/ton. I had a bit over 1800lbs, for a take home of $221 and change.

Sounds pretty good for scrap. Are you gonna spend it on any GT stuff?

70 years ago farmers were cleaning up fence rows to defeat a very evil man . Now some do it to have a plow day . Nice touch . My old outside boar pen has been used to store scrap for many years . Now it is time to use it for a hog pen again . The money did get spent on GT ( ET ) stuff . New camera being looked into also . :D Couldn't help it - the grin.

Thats a good chunk of change for some metal that was just cluttering up your gully. I wonder what you are planning to paint! I'm guessing at least some of that paint would be red!

Yep, need some red, but not to use right away. I'm planning to paint 2 rear rims white tomorrow for one of my Bush Hog JBI's, but I already have that paint.
