Hope your 4th was a good one. Pat and I were in Busch Stadium Thursday and Friday nights for Cardinals baseball. Good nights, but doggone it…the Cards didn’t win.
On Saturday, we got to see Ben for a while. He’s in St. Louis, training with Republic Airlines. Soon, he’ll be in the nose of an Embraer 175!
Scouting? I went out on the Gator this morning to spot spray some small patches of Johnsongrass near Wheatland. I also scouted the nearby fields that need replanting. I found only one small patch that is close enough to dry to replant today. Maybe 1 or 2% of all the needed replant, but I’ll go do that right away.
So, we turn our attention to other tasks, like bush-hog work on waterways and roadsides and riparian levees. John is out in the 4730 sprayer; he is doing mostly field perimeters, but he has to be careful in his choice of fields, to make sure he is working where the soil is dry and firm enough to support the sprayer.
Corn is beginning to tassel!
Rain is predicted for tomorrow and Wednesday…
