Swathing In The Rain

Not something I planned to do but the rain hit when I was at the far end of the field with the swather and I tried to work my way back to where the truck was parked. It actually worked quite well but I figured by 7:30 and with a headache I was ready to quit. Just as well because more rain hit as I drove home. Good thing the new road construction was gravelled or I'd have had problems. Four tenths in the gauge when I got home.
The canola was like most years. In places over ripe but in others so green that it could have stood another week or two before being ready. Always a compromise with this crop.
Some interesting cloud scenery on the way home if I'd only had a better camera or at least got this one focused properly.
The terrible heat of last week has ended and it is positively cool out there this evening at 52 degrees.


  1. We could use some of that cool. Some rain too.

  2. I'm loving this cooler weather but fearing it means my green peppers won't have time to make fruit (didn't get them into the ground till mid-July).
    By the way, we got your "flutterby" infestation ... grills are full of 'em.

  3. Cooler is great for me. If I never see 80 degrees again I will be happy.
    Been eating green peppers and vine ripened tomatoes here for a month now but I guess they were planted in late May too.
