Looking forward to pictures of the MF6 running up and down between the rows of corn.
Things look pretty dry over there. Our ground is so wet, It's like walking on a sponge.

Hey, Brad was over today and we are trying to look at what we are going to take to Arkansaw to Tractor Mikes show. We decided That would be the first on the trailer. Many Pics to follow.

With the big iron it goes pretty well.
When I get the 4 wheel drive done I'll have to rent ground to keep busy:D

Well gentlemen, This is the 4th of July. This is the measure for corn in the badger state. Kneel high at the 4th.
I was there 2 days ago and now have corn waist high on the first planting. Have to use the corprate cruiser to size.

Second Planting made it knee high to my surprise. Just the right Moisture and now some warm sunny weather

Lumax @ 1 Qt / acre:bounce::bounce::bounce::bounce: Cleared for sweet corn in Wisconsin.
Worked well.
The open ground is where we planted Pumpkins but not coming good. Should have asked the farmer that had corn on there last year what he used for herbicides. The pumpkins did not like there home.

Nice looking corn in your garden, glad it's doing well. Too bad the pumpkins aren't doing so well.

WoW what an evening. Corn is well and just went in to knock up a few velvet leaf weeds and there it was. Coon damage in 3 different areas. About 6 foot circles.
OK stopped at Fleet Farm tonight and picked up the items I would need to stop those little buggers. While setting the trays I find the deer have also came to visit. They only ate 2 stalks of corn compared to the coons knocking down dozens of stalks and only eating a half cob on only a few stalks. They are very wasteful little critters and I am on a campaign to put them at bay.
Now we just got a big rain from out of nowhere. I bet those bait trays my have run over from the rain. I my not be able to grow a coon out there for several years. (Carry over from those bait trays running over) But I can live without those critters:smile1:

Slowed the coon damage and a bit of deer damage and we have corn to no tomorrow. 100 dozen so far and need to move some more. We can not keep up to the corn at this time need to move a bit more to keep up to what is maturing right now. Starting to look at wholesaling or the food pantry just to make sure it goes to a good home.
