50 acres and a Buck
Nov 29 2009
Finally had a decent day yesterday. Took out about 50 acres. The fields are just starting to dry out enough to get thru. Started out behind the house and worked around some seeps in hills. The monitor was off. It said we had harvested a total of 70 acres but that field doesn’t have 70 acres in it. We ran out a big buck that survived another shotgun season. After leaving that field, we started across the road. This field had about 27 acres harvested previously. It was soft. And I cut a few ruts but was able to get thru it. The grain cart tore up the field some but it can’t be helped. It’s gotta come out. William drove the semi and straight truck to fuel them up and fix a few lights. We are heading over to a field that is about 15 miles away. Our usual elevator won’t be open and has been closing around noon. Luckily we can take this field to another one. William ran over there to see how they dump the the corn since he has hauled there before. The good Lord is smiling on us. He took the rain out of the forecast for today.
