I'll start this thread to show what I am doing currently and splice the other one when I get it caught up to date later this winter.


Been having some rainy days again, so can't do much on the farm and can't haul out of the basement either... the holding area atop the south wall seemed like a good idea last winter, but when it came time to haul out, not alot of space for a loader or excav to load trucks. So time for some more digging! Measured down 10 inches and cut straight across.













I swept the majority of the dirt lumps off by hand, but for kicks I brought in the equip to tidy up.






Now I'll have plenty of 'headroom' for the equip and I'll be able to sit down while loading a truck... my lower back just kills me if I stand in the same spot for more than a minute.

Joe, I bet that air chisel makes you work a lot easier.

I know what you mean about the back, mines shot.

Yeah, the air chisel is a big improvement over the pic axe, more controlled digging without dirt flying everywhere!

I ruined my back with custom grain hauling ten - fifteen yrs ago, too many little bins & shoveling 42mt at a crack!

Showers started last Sat nite thru till Wed, a couple days sun & now they're talking more cloud & rain for next wk starting Sun... I hired a high clearance Case IH S/P sprayer today to desicate my durum, 7-10 days from now (depending on weather) to maybe start combining. My tractor/sprayer, I cruze about 6-9mph & think I'm flying at times doing 250 acres to a fill in 2.5 to 3 hrs. This S/P cruzes 18mph (he's got a buddy seat, I rode along) what a smoooooth ride and great view! 200acres done in just over an hr! He sprayed 800 acres for me in about 7 hrs, including fill time & some road miles... that would take me the better part of two days with my outfit... if I had 300 grand to spend freely ---- hmmmm sweet machine

Cheers Cossett

It varies every yr Henry, this yr has been quite cool & wet, it's been getting close to freezing many times in the last few wks, that would really screw shyt up if it freezes within the next two to three wks.

Thanx Martin... started drizzling this afternoon & tomorrow don't look good either... probably have some updates to show in the next few days (& get back on topic lol).

Making it bigger Ace.

There's a local guy here all growing season Chris, I see him (or more specifically "hear him") go out everyday (thank God I live nine miles from the airport, town ppl sure complain about the 5am WAKE UP everyday lol). He's two dollars an acre more and likely wouldn't come exactly when I want him too, he's booked up all the time. The durum that was desicated, it's all in fenced land, the cows will get what the S/P tramps... and durum aint worth f/k all anyway... what a joke for a price compared to two yrs ago.

Cheers Cossett :chug:

About every thirty mile radius there's a plane Dean.

Good to see your return Kevin, the patch is letting up some so you have time for hobbies again?

I've been tinkering a few days a week in the quarry the last couple wks, tidying up the last of the loose soil from the sw corner (above photos), then I'll be back to digging in the crawl space again.

My winter storage area is filling up quickly, as winter weather has been here nearly two wks already and I didn't have the chance beforehand to completely haul everything out... what a bytch of yr for wet weather, set new records of 26 inches rainfall from April - October. What little the sun did shine, I was busy with the farm... I still have a couple hundred bales to pick, but not going to do it @ -25!

White trk was on the bench last wkend, R&R broken and worn parts. I've never broke an inter-axle driveshaft before. lol


















On another note, I got a confirmation email from Vario Germany, that my JD850 shipped out Friday, and a phone call today from FedEx Calgary that it has arrived & awaiting to clear Customs. They tell me I should have it by Wed 5pm... though I wonder, the roads are pretty ugly out there... I hope it doesn't end up on one of the many trks I see flipped over on the news nearly everyday haha
