@  mlappin : (21 October 2014 - 09:57 PM) Really wanna get a strange look, tell em no need to head to the hospital when the time comes, have a calf winch in the barn.
@  swmnhay : (21 October 2014 - 09:18 PM) Paul,Freshen sounds a little better then to Farrow ;)
@  FarmerCline : (21 October 2014 - 08:56 PM) Hope to start cutting beans Friday.....beans have been ready about a week but the ground is just now dry enough to get on it. Fella is supposed to come Friday to help me set up my new to me combine. The July planted double crop beans are now turning golden yellow.
@  haybaler101 : (21 October 2014 - 08:48 PM) Beans are not cutting good till 6 pm and then start going the other way by 7!
@  Vol : (21 October 2014 - 06:36 PM) Ground finally firmed up enough to get back on it after 5+" of rain last week....re-sowed some washed and drowned areas.....no rain for 10 days now....dang alfalfa has hit a wall....not much growth last 7-10 days
@  stack em up : (21 October 2014 - 05:52 PM) Figured saying what I really thought would be too risque for chat. My 7 year old niece asked a good pregnant friend of ours when she was due to freshen.... She may or may not have heard that from me on separate occasions...
@  endrow : (21 October 2014 - 04:54 PM) 60 bu as well PaMike
@  Bonfire : (21 October 2014 - 04:25 PM) My MIL will say Ohhh cheese and crackers!!!
@  Vol : (21 October 2014 - 03:39 PM) Oh snap and preggers?? Not heard those expressions....sounds like something that the English would say. ;)
@  PaMike : (21 October 2014 - 09:29 AM) endrow-what was your yield on the beans? First year for me with beans and from what I hear 60 bushel is a good yield for central pa
@  stack em up : (21 October 2014 - 08:40 AM) Nope, her ecstatic phone call was to tell me the triticale was up... Gotta love a farm wife!
@  stack em up : (21 October 2014 - 08:40 AM) So my wife called me this morning, said she had wonderful news! Im thinking, oh snap, she's preggers.
@  mlappin : (21 October 2014 - 08:17 AM) That's one of those things he'll remember ffar longer Cy than what somebody bought him for his birthday or Christmas. I remember very few of toys my grandparents bought me, but I'll always remember Grandpa taking me to the diner for breakfast when I was 5 or 6 and showing off his best hired man.
@  swmnhay : (21 October 2014 - 06:51 AM) A bad day fishing is better then a good day working.
@  swmnhay : (21 October 2014 - 06:50 AM) Well we didn't catch any fish but we had fun.
@  Shetland She... : (21 October 2014 - 06:05 AM) 42° and overcast here in srn NH. 60% chance of showers, thumpers & heavy rain with a high in mid 50s.
@  endrow : (21 October 2014 - 05:36 AM) full season beans done wheat and barley in
@  PaMike : (21 October 2014 - 04:51 AM) Beans went well. 14% moisture. Dont have the final numbers but looks like 60 bushel/acre, might be 58 but I will take that. Probably should have banked them but I sold them at $9.11. Biggest issue was finding a truck to haul them....
@  Bgriffin856 : (20 October 2014 - 09:06 PM) Happy belated birthday PaMike hope the beans went well
@  Bgriffin856 : (20 October 2014 - 08:58 PM) Finished chopping corn today about 6-8 loads short from where I woulda liked but thats not bad all things considerd this year
