Can you top this?

CROOKED ROW CONTEST...

This is NOT mine, but was done by a nieghbor that bought my third planter back. 8/38 JD 7000.  Pulls it with a little CNH. Looks like one or the other was having a fit.

This ole boy might be smarter than all of us, you can get more seed in a crooked row.  I know I know, that's the oldest saying in the book, but duh.:smileyhappy:

Re: Can you top this?

I might be able to this year. Usually plant pretty straight, but desperate to get the seeding done between rain storms, I was planting into the wee morning hours without real good lights. Looks kind of crooked some places, but got er finished May 18 while a lot of the neighbors finished late this week. Driving down the road, a lot of field do not look as neatly done as usual this year.

Yep that's my story and I'm sticking to it.

 

Btw I do not have any straight rows but .... My neighbor wins

 

Looks like what happened was he started in on the long rows in the middle and could only throw one marker and did not do a good job of guessing where to drive on the non marked side. He's only about 50 years young ... still learning.
