John has the soybean herbicide (first post) application complete. The corn is ‘laid by.’ Therefore, today we turn our attention more fully to prepping for wheat harvest. Ross has gone to sample some heads of wheat in the fields, and he is saying the combines will run on Monday or Tuesday. Good news. It certainly ‘feels like’ wheat harvest time in SWIN…. hot and humid.
Brandon has the trucks serviced and fully prepared. The MacDon FD75 header and the JD 640FD are serviced and ready. All that remains is to hook up the Demco grain cart to the JD 9360R tractor.
Also today, the guys from Montgomery Welding completed installing the staff for the USA flag that we display at the top of our new grain leg. A storm tore down the flag’s staff last fall, and we did not have one displayed up high..until today. John is preparing the nighttime illumination for ‘Old Glory’.
So, lookout wheat! We’re comin’ to get you next week! Should take 3-4 days.
Have a pleasant weekend, everyone.
