3 Days of Harvest

Followed by three days of damp and rainy weather which will probably mean no further harvesting this week. We did not need that extra 3/4 inch of rain last night but it does keep the grass green and the cattle happy.
No matter how much green stuff they eat they will never refuse a pail of oat chop. The photo shows the sun is trying to break through the clouds this morning .
Harvesting canola went well for three days. The crop was a good average yield so far. Extreme weed regrowth in the stubble in spite of a double application of Roundup through the growing season.
I had some company come to visit in the field on Saturday.

  1. We have four acres of teff to harvest for seed. Over $1 per lb value. But it keeps showering and it turns green again. Looks like at least 1500lbs/acre. I think we will swath today. Think it will end up as duck food.
