Big rain

Tuesday, October 10, 2017

1.56″ (40mm).

Yes, it was a rainy morning, but the sun is back out in the late afternoon.  Not sure just how soon the corn fields will support the combines to re-start the harvest.

But the rain is welcome, to spur the growth of the wheat crop just planted, and the cover crop oats.  The morning gave me a small chance to run a bush hog around a couple fields, but soon the ground was too soft for even that.

The weather station in the farm office is pretty accurate. It shows the rainfall total there on the right.

When I got the 7130 bush hog tractor back in the shed, I had to wait several minutes for the rain to ease up to get to the pickup.

The water ran in streams across the farm lot in front of the shop.  In the field, the rain soaked right into the soil.

We will get back after it asap.
