Tractor let's me know if it's too much. Then I'll lift up. . And yes not super deep. Maybe 3 inches on first pass.  Try not to turn super sharp anyway.

Interesting to hear you talk about laser grading that piece of earth.  I don't have 5 contiguous acres that flat and level.  Guns N' Roses... takes me back to high school!

Ha ha. Whilst not being "dead flat" so to speak. Virtually all our farms have been lasered. Obviously some have more fall than other pieces. But the whole point is to be able to irrigate as much as possible due to our climate.

Sorry about that diddle. I have been told that we are to get a software update soon. I sure hope it becomes reality. The camera/pic posting is a royal pain for many. 

 

Regards, Mike

I can't really hit like on that one endrow.  The warehouses gobbling up farm ground along the I-81 corridor in our area is disheartening.

Yeah, I drive 81 north 4-6 times a year.   it’s amazing how much beautiful farmland has been consumed between Winchester and Harrisburg in the last 15 years.  Too bad they don’t have to use the rock land for development instead of prime farmland

 Baling last of 5th cut.  Far from ideal weather conditions.  30kph wind all night.  Started raking at 1.30am finished by 5.20 straight on baler. No dew to speak of. But enough moisture out of fresh shoots that it baled up nicely.  That and finished by 8am so consistent weather conditions. No choice as weather will worsen with stronger winds and then getting hotter. Attached File  20210218_061443.jpg   66.28KB   0 downloadsAttached File  20210218_072416.jpg   192.72KB   0 downloads

Nothing green yet. Keeping busy moving logs from point a-b for a cousin. Needed somebody that knew how to drive. For the most part it's a controlled slide using brakes. Not much level ground to work with.

 

The old farmstead in the middle of nowhere is cool. Attached is couple pictures of an old piece of equipment and cannot for life of me figure out what it's called. Doing a nice job of holding up the roof which in turn is still protecting it. Seems to be in nice shape and debating on trying to get it this summer just to keep it from wasting away.

 

What is it and can anybody make out the name on it?

It looks like a Clipper seed cleaner. Grandpa had one.

Spray the name with water and see if reads plainer. Maybe it reads Chatham??

This one might just be a little earlier than yours Chris. It is a Chatham Fanning.

I see a lot of clippers in this corner of the state. I wonder where that chatham was built?

I like your log rigger, looks like a simple and quick way to use 3point.
