Planting yesterday afternoon
BTW: how's the calibration on these fields look?
Field cultivating yesterday evening.
Plant in the dust the bins will bust?
These bottoms are working as great as possible. The hill ground in the area is still full of wet spots.

That May snow we had really made the soil mellow. I could see us begging for a rain in a month, that`s kind of what Elwyn is hinting at.

Will not be dust here this morning.
A few areas missed enough rain that they were running yesterday with dust but most in Ontario were parked.
Estimates are 70% of corn planted in Ontario.
I am about 90% finished, rained out with about 3 hours to go last Friday morning.
25mm since then.
No rain and I could go again this aft.

That's not 'dust'. Just normal operation. 'Dust' is when you can't see your equipment and you can't see where you're headed. From the road you can't see what color the tractor is - or if it is a tractor and not a dust devil. Couple of days ago I 'saw' a Steiger Tiger and 20 ton notill drill disappear for long periods of time. Just a traveling dust cloud. More of a western thing I guess.
Since I've gotten an auto steer set up I believe I'm losing the 'feel' and intuition developed over the years to know where I'm going when I can't see anything outside the glass.
