Crop report

Postby Keef on Mon Sep 08, 2008 10:00 am

I want to show you how I spent my summer. This is a milo field in the front of the property. It's all milo, about 4 acres.

This is the middle field planted in Whitetail Institute Power Plant, another variety of milo with some other stuff. It's about 2 1/2 acres.

Whoops. The first two pictures are the same field. This is the Power Plant field.

This is one of two small clover patches.

Another piece of the middle field. We planted alfalfa and winter wheat this last week.

This is the back field. Clover, chicory and winter wheat were planted last week. We sprayed the field to kill weeds, disced it and then planted with a homemade harrow behind the quad.

This is my hired hand, my son, driving my pride and joy, a new JD 4320 tractor. I already have 60 hours on it and love playing with it.

I mowed strips through some cedar thickets so new growth of native grasses would occur. Plus it makes it easier to walk through it. These thickets had blackberries and strawberries throughout. It would be nice to hang out there during gun season if you're a deer. We put a tripod here so we could see the entire field. The stand was leveled after the picture, it's a little tilted in the picture.

We now have 8 ladder stands and 3 tripods on the property so we've got it covered for any conditions.

Thanks for letting me share the photos of my little place. I really enjoy going there. The country is beautiful and the people are nice. I wrote a story about buying my farm and it should be published sometime in the next year. I hope all of you get the chance to have the fun (and frustrations) I've had with it.

One last thing, this is a map of the farm. The food plots are in light green. If I catch any of you on it you're in big trouble. :lol: We haven't planted the field labeld 6. I haven't decided for sure whether I'll do it.

The blue is a small stream that winds through it. The bigger blue on the right is a piece of a 60 acre lake my neighbor owns.

One last picture from our trip through Montana. I think I'll get some of these signs for my place, we don't have any sidewalks but they'll get the point. :lol:
