Wheat harvest, planting milo, spraying, rotary hoe, etc.

It has been a busy few weeks. I fertilized and planted my milo, and a quarter for my neighbor. We have had a bunch of heavy rains and some hail, so it has needed rotary hoeing to keep it from blowing. Those of you familiar with our farming out here know what I am talking about. We have been cutting wheat in fits and starts the past week and a half. We keep having rain and damp mornings so we can't seem to get rolling really good. Between the hoeing and cutting I have been fixing air conditioners on equipment and working on other mechanical issues. I have actually had a couple days now to get caught up and take it easy. The weeds around our house are going like gang busters and I need to get them mowed. Except out in the goat pen, the little lawnmowers out there are keeping it ate off really well.
