Going green


I could get used to having auto steer on the combine. I’m helping out a neighbor who owns all Deere equipment and has a brand new combine with all the bells and whistles. Not having to always look at the outside row and to be able to focus on what’s in front of you is nice. These beans were planted a month later than normal and their yielding alarmingly good.




The Oldies

Our neighbor, Wayne, stopped by delivering holiday cupcakes on his new but old John Deere tractor. A lot has changed since that time of hand clutches and open air seating, but the tractor is simply fascinating. If I remember correctly, it is a 1953 model, a time when tractors were transitioning to power take offs from a belt system. This tractor had both.
