Hope you didn't miss diner. Way to FAST for old slow guy like me. The corn here is about 6 inches high and most went under for a couple days.

Cookout was great with great food & company. Didn't get but 10 acres corn planted due to helping spray guy with problems, but at least got started. Basically got everything done I had hoped. Tomorrow I hope to plant a little in the morning, then get the hay rolled after lunch.

A very productive, but tiring day. Did 3/4 of the milking, then had Josh finish while I planted corn. After lunch I started teddering the alfalfa, then went back to planting & Josh finished the teddering. Planted a 35 acre field, then after Josh raked the hay, I rolled 58 rolls. Just finished 15 minutes ago. 35 acres isn't much compared to large crop farms, but I'm just using a 4 row unit, so with all the other jobs to do, it is plenty. I had thought I might plant some more this evening, but my knees say to take a break, so I'm listening. My goal for tomorrow is to finish planting the fields at Josh's house. If I get that done, I'll have 96 of the 150 acres planted. One planter unit gives me problems from the slightly muddy spots, but it's manageable. Was a 13hr non stop day, and hot! Using anj open tractor for planting & it hit 90F today! Baling was in a cab tractor with AC, not that cold, but comfortable. After such a run of troubles, things are looking up! :-)

It's good things are going well. Glad you 'listened' to your knees, just your body saying take it easy.

Sounds like a very busy few days but things are getting done!! That must feel great. Sounds like the mechanical end of things are holding up too.
Get some rest.

Speaking of behaving, how's Dad?

Glad to hear that things are going well. A little hectic perhaps but going in the right direction. Sounds like you made a wise choice with the spraying so that it was taken care of. I hope that the weather cooperates and things continue to work in your favor.

Dad's doing great! He actually teddered the hay day before yesterday. He shouldn't have, but hard to stop him. He did call it a day early & didn't do too much. It does him more good to keep busy than sit. That's the main reason I'm kicking it to get things done, so he'll not think he HAS to work. He seemed quite happy I got done what I did yesterday. I set my bar high to plant 60 acres today, but I think I can get it done being that's ALL that I have to do now that I've left the parlor.
I've never planted more than a few acres a year before, as Dad always did it & I would just fill in when he broke for lunch/etc. Looks like I'll be doing LOTS more from here on out. Oh well.... gotta eat! LOL

Hectic is fine as long as progress is being made. I was telling Fred (meangreen) last night how tired I was last night, but it was a good tired being so much got done. Nothing worse than kicking your butt and not getting anything done for problems.

In for a tuna fish sandwich, then out the door to plant again. About an hour & a half & I'll have met my goal, but if I can keep going, I'll move out to dad's house a mile down the road & start on the last 3 fields. Planted about 50 acres so far, but plan to hit 70 before I quit for the day. I'm hoping to get ALL the corn planted by tomorrow afternoon. Told Josh he'll be doing the morning milking so I can head out early. Chances of ran coming in, so trying to beat it. Later guys, gotta roll!... well, plant! LOL
