Looking great, this thread is getting me motivated to get working myself. Now if the ground would just dry up a tad!

The ground is working up good. Had my nephew disc it again today and it just needs a cultipacker over it a few times and it will be set.

Good luck with you plots. If I had all of those toys to play with I would have to be pulled off the tractor after dark too. Great to see that you have plenty of good help also!!!

Well I parked the 60' anhydrous tool bar for the little atv spreader. Got my lime and fertilizer spread. Now time to cultipack it and seed it. Gotta lay out my plots and then seed.



Letting it fly!

Well it got cultipacked today. My nephew was bored and wanted to help.





Then on the way back to the barn the ol 4020 died and wouldn't start back up. Had to go tow him back to the barn. Now time to mark it off for my strips.

Sweet looking 4020. Just think how much ground was farmed with them in their day! At least you don't need a computer to work on this one.

No computer but some wiring is in order. This one is the one I use for my sweetcorn planter and picker. It's got the m&w turbo kit on it. Full rack of weights up front and 3 on each rear wheel.
Here's a short video of him packing. They bought it new in 69 I believe.

Plot is all planted. The ground had sat idle for a little bit and got kinda hard and the seeder wasn't doin a very good job. So I found an old drag from behind the barn and hooked on chain on behind the ranger.


Rented a brillion seeder from our John Deere dealer. I wasn't really impressed with it.


I had some sweet corn planted la couple Sunday's ago and its spiking thru. I also put out some bags of mix I picked up at rural king. A teco-mate mix and a harvest mix and some frigid forage wildlife blend. I'm going to compare how they do.

I sprayed some roundup on it today(just seeded last night). Didn't spray my sweet corn but I used my cheap sprayer from rural king.


Now it's time for mother nature to do her business.

Round up is working on my weeds and grass. So it needs a little shower to help the seeds get going.

Finally got a little shower. Clover is coming up and that's about it. My sweet corn isn't fairing too well. Might start over on the sweet corn.

If you're going to plant sweet corn in Indiana, why would you want to plant it so early? Seems like you'd want to wait as long as possible so that it doesn't silk too early and be totally wiped out months before season. How many acres is your corn food plot? Do you have many raccoons in your area?
