Corn in ground

Corn is planted and almost poking through already.  Winter barley trial is interesting as it is short but is heading out very well already.  Weighing my options on which herbicide to post on my non gmo corn.  Yes all my corn is conventional and some is even open pollinated.  No triple dipple or quad stacks of hundred dollar bills for my seed bill.  I also can proudly say Monsanto(monsatan) has not gotten a penny from me yet. It is definitely not the easy way to go choosing non gmo. I also…

When to plant

To plant or not to plant today...  with time ticking away, lots of rain and cold temps in the forecast it's hard to know what's best. Guess for now I don't have to choose myself :) Good luck farmers!

Repair your faulty equipment with the aid of my free library.

Just a reminder to all members, that I now have more than 1250 workshop and operator manuals and parts lists for all sorts of farming equipment and if you're stuck for a bit of information from any of them, just ask.

K2 year 5 coming up

Ive been posting on this sight since just before we planted our first crop.   ime sure slips by quickly.  After last years disaster lets hope for a better year in 2013.


The biggest changes for this year are going to be in acres.   We were able to buy an adjacent farm a few weeks ago that will add  110 acres.  I then got on the phone and finally took the leap to call on some other adjacent land that would make sense to try and buy.  Its regular topic on how to get on more…
