Not sure what time you plan to set up Saturday. I will be more than willing to help with anything. One way for me to show my appreciation for you holding this. I hope to be there early enough so I can help with whatever.

My hope is to be there before 6. I think I will beat sunrise. Of course the night before we are going to the school hog roast. Considering it a Catholic roast, there will be some adult beverages there lol.

Thanks Kenny. It'll be somewhat normal. I go in early anyways. My alarm won't change from during the week wake times. I usually clock in at 4 and am on the road with a load around 415. This won't be much different except I'm not getting paid lol!

Daniel, if that's too early then let me know. I can stall somewhere or another.

Likely I'll be there right around 6am, maybe slightly earlier.  I've been 7 hours getting the grass/stalks off the field.  Had to re-rake it to tighten the windrows.  Then Teresa went to town for another bale of twine Southern States said they had.  She gets there & they don't have it  :mad2:   Told her not to worry, come on home.  I figured my neighbor would have a bale.  She went by her Dad's & got 2 small rolls of binder twine.  That wasn't enough to finish either.  went to my neighbor's and he had a new bale of twine & he just finished rolling for the year.  Then my tractor overheated, just as my daughter had me on my phone about having her car towed to my house for me to fix....yep, you guessed it....her car was overheating, now if you put water in it, it just flows out from under the engine.  :(   That's all I need right now, but maybe just a hose.  Got my tractor cooled down, and turns out it was just low on coolant.  Topped it sloooowly with water to finish baling the field.  Will add antifreeze another day.  Oh, baler gave problems at first too, but got that rectified.  FINALLY got done rolling around 7pm tonight.  Made 90 4x5 rolls!  This is off just 25 to 30 acres, so imagine all that on the ground where we would be trying to plow!  I just hope someone will buy the stuff cheap.  It'll make decent feed, just not quality feed.  At this point I'd take very little per bale.  I still have 55 bales to get out of the field, but that won't be a problem.  Dad may do it for me.  As far as field prep, this has been a one man show & has me worn out, but after Fred & I test plowed a few minutes ago, that made me feel better, as I never had a trash buildup problem at all.  Also with the loose trash gone, traction is much improved.  Main thing with this hard ground is to slide the plow to the right so NOT to take a full bite.    We'll be plowing!

Daniel, we really appreciate all the work you put in on this. I am now bringing my son, we'll try to be there by no later than 7 to help out. Anything we need to bring? 

 

What did you roll up? Random grass? I have a donkey that eats the rough stuff. Won't get many rolls sold, but I might take some off your hands.

All I can think of is some doughnuts.  We won't be able to get any fresh ones Saturday morning.  I'll have plenty of coffee.  I'll reimburse for the doughnuts.  But anyone willing to pick some up, please post here.  We won't need 12 dozen!  Will we?   :rolling:

This was corn silage ground, so there is crab grass, johnson grass, wild fescue, and corn stalks.  Even some ears of corn in the rolls.  Lots of whole corn gets knocked down chopping silage, especially the center of the fields where we have to ride down 2 rows to split a field for easier chopping.

I'd be glad to bring 2 or 3 dozen. The only bakery I'll be near is Hadorn's in Bardstown, they don't open till 7 on Saturday. Will that get me there early enough to help out setting up?

 

I sent you a PM on the rolls.

Daniel,

Thank you again for all of the hard work!!! I wish I were about 2 hours closer and I would be helping out with the prep. Since the chili is taken care of I'll bring a bowl of chopped fresh jalapenos.

 

I won't be there anywhere near 6am so no need to get an early start for me!! I'm leaning more toward 8-9am. And I'm sticking around for the group picture this year!!
