Hilled 12 rows of sweet corn with the ole' 5 hp. Special, and an old spare set of cultivators with hillers, and regular sweeps on the back to take out the wheel tracks.

 

  Sure beats using a hoe..!!

I have 1600 feet of sweet corn, I've been doing with a hoe, I need to fix my electric lift and put my Simplicity 7016 to work with the mid mount and rear cultivators, or at lest use my wards with the hiller attachment

From what I'm seeing reported on the news Okie, I'm just hoping you have some corn left to cultivate..!! You guys are really getting slammed this Spring..!!

I have one 100x150 garden that the hybrid corn and beans has just started to come up, I have a small 60 x 24 garden that potatoes are knee high and I have been trying to grow those heirloom "patriot seeds" it isn't going well, only about 40 percent of the seeds germinate and only half those will end up producing or surviving. If people have these heirloom seeds saved as protection against bad times they are in deep doo-da if they dont start plantng them and getting them acclimated to their soil conditions and build up a hardiness. The intial crop you get should produce seeds to replant, but I doubt you will get more than a weeks worth of vegatbles from a 50.00 seed pack. I've lived in Kansas and Oklahoma for 45 years out of 57, it's not the bad weather that bothers me, its the constant barrage of EXTRA weather shows that take over all communications. I would like to tell them that these tornados aren't new, wont go away, and their forecasting doesn't seem to have made much of a difference in property damage, advanced warning, or life saving. It's not that they aren't putting out warnings trying to save lives, but because they inundate us with "the sky is falling" for weeks at a time, people quit listening. I quit watching TV weather years ago, I prefer to stand outside and look at the sky, If I can't make it to shelter 20 feet away, maybe it's my time
