Many tasks

Wednesday, August 21, 2019

Many things are happening at Carnahan & Sons.  We are moving out the last remaining loads of the 2019 wheat crop.  Brandon has been servicing the trucks.  Montgomery Welding is here to replace the unloading auger in bin #7.  The flooring will be repaired too.  He will soon start on replacing the big belt and buckets inside the 1998 Honeyville grain leg.  I have been occupied with preparing the fall harvest information for the combines, and getting the FieldView set up so that the combines will recognize the hybrids and varieties in each field.   The bush hog is being run at some roadsides, to clean up the field appearance one last time before harvest.

Corn planted May 16, is beginning to mature.

Most mornings are foggy, and it even delayed the start of school in the county today.

The Co-op delivered highway and field fuel. DEF, too.  Here, the delivery guy is leaving the farm on his latest trip.

Brandon serviced the ‘Vanna’ semi a couple days ago

Rain sent me home with the bush hog yesterday afternoon.

Access to repair the floor and unloader in this bin is made by removing a panel in the side.

We received .35″ (9mm) rain yesterday, and more is in the forecast for this afternoon.  That’s a good thing.  Yesterday’s storm brought down a couple arm-loads of little limbs… picked up those this morning.

So, you see, there are lotsa things happening on these sultry summer days.
