@  Shetland She... : (25 March 2017 - 06:45 AM) 35º and foggy here in srn NH. Rain/snow likely today with a high in low 40s.
@  mlappin : (24 March 2017 - 10:56 PM) Might be the same here, but about the time the dew was gone had wind speeds of 20+ mph
@  haybaler101 : (24 March 2017 - 08:23 PM) Finally got warm enough to start spraying ryegrass cover crop today. Knocked out 210 acres before the wind got too strong.
@  FarmerCline : (24 March 2017 - 08:16 PM) Sprayed my orchard grass today for broadleaves.....mostly vetch......the seedling orchard was still a little young to be spraying but I didn't have much choice as the vetch was starting to spread rapidly and was choking out the orchard seedlings.
@  FarmerCline : (24 March 2017 - 08:13 PM) Peaches and other early blooming fruit crops were a complete loss around here. Grasses and small grains had a few leaves that got frostbite but not enough to hurt anything......alfalfa got bit a little but not too bad.....mostly just slowed it down a little which might be a good thing because I wasn't going to be ready to make hay in April.
@  Shetland She... : (24 March 2017 - 06:09 PM) Keep forgetting to mention, the Red Winged Blackbirds & Killdeers are back!
@  Vol : (24 March 2017 - 03:43 PM) My blueberries were lost....Forage grasses have come out of the slight bite at the tops....I used granular on the wheat and it does seem it was not hurt...maybe slowed a day or two. Alfalfa got the its butt kicked on the top half but coming around finally. This could end up being a good thing for it if the yield doesn't suffer too badly.
@  BWfarms : (24 March 2017 - 10:07 AM) I was fortunate my blueberries weren't budding yet. Vol, I think you started fertilizing a week before I did. I noticed I fared better than the guys that fertilized a week or more before I did. Liquid sprayed wheat yellowed while the granular spread wheat went untouched. My wheat exploded with the cold.
@  Shetland She... : (24 March 2017 - 06:41 AM) 24º and mostly cloudy here in srn NH. Today may be cloudy with increasing chance of snow/rain and a high in low 40s.
@  somedevildawg : (23 March 2017 - 10:38 PM) Lots of melons in north and central Florida hit, tomatoes as well....we started planting melons this week here, fortunately
@  Vol : (23 March 2017 - 08:23 PM) Last weeks record cold in the Southeast took its toll, I saw that SC lost between 80-90% of the Peach crop....GA was hit hard too....TN lost the vast majority of blueberries and strawberries....and about 50% of its peach crop. Going to really tough on some producers. I know it has set my alfalfa way back....even dinged the tops of Orchard grass....wheat seemed to fair a little better here.
@  PaMike : (23 March 2017 - 08:10 PM) Thats not too bad considering the ag market how it is...
@  haybaler101 : (23 March 2017 - 05:27 PM) @paoutdoorsman Yeah, pretty happy. Everything sold pretty close to book values.
@  RockyHill : (23 March 2017 - 07:22 AM) I answer to either Shelia or Sheila, might have mellowed in the past few years :-)
@  Shetland She... : (23 March 2017 - 06:58 AM) Oh man! I can't resist any longer! It's NOT Sheila! It's SHELIA! ;) :P
@  Shetland She... : (23 March 2017 - 06:54 AM) 17º and sunny here in srn NH. Today should remain sunny with a high in mid 30s.
@  paoutdoorsman : (23 March 2017 - 06:53 AM) Are you happy with the BigIron results haybaler101?
@  somedevildawg : (22 March 2017 - 11:28 PM) Haven't seen the first thing Sheila....
@  RockyHill : (22 March 2017 - 08:59 PM) has there been any word from Tim/South? Our computer has been in the shop so I probably missed some chat box. Shelia
@  broadriverhay : (22 March 2017 - 06:26 PM) Got fertilizer and Prowl H2O applied yesterday and then got 1.2" of rain last night . Could not have been any more perfect. The field started to green today!!!!!!!!!!
