View From the Hagie

I have always enjoyed spraying - really since 1976 - when I started working for Soil Service in Morristown - You always seen something that stuck out - somewhere - some place - That was a long time ago - Now in the Hag with A/C and a very good stero - Plus the added height - you can seen pretty well - Its been pretty busy here the last 10 days or so - between mine and some nice custom jobs - I have been around - then there was yesterday - Had 400 acres of tall corn to spray and was in the next to last field to go - so heres a picture of the spray -




Camera was in focus  - its the windows that are the problem - was laying down some folair feed - with twin jets at 45 psi -


Then as I was pulling out I found this - sitting in the drive way




Its a 1930 modle T - When I just had to check it out - you know -  The owner asked if I was in a hurry - I replied - I have 100 acres left then done - it was around 4 so I have plenty of time -  When I got done checking it out - I looked around and he had raised up the his shop door and waved to come on in - then I seen this !




This is a 1915 Modle T tractor that his Grandpa had brought new in 1915 - it came as a kit from Ford - and Ford is stamped in the front wheel - btw - he jumped up on it and it started right off !   Then there was this




Yeap - Thats a wheat drill - first used behind a horse - then was pulled by the Modle T tractor - He didn't know what year it is .


Then there was today - More custom work with beans IMG_1868.JPG


A 140 - just about a mile long - Pretty field of beans !  THEN - as I had just finish my paper work and was ready to pull out , this went by at - my guess - 30 40 mph - I had to lmao on this one -




Yes  - those are street tires on it - Well better get - need to kick back and have a cold one and relax - We quit early because of rain fast time - still have 2 more days of custom on the books - so may have some more  pictures - lol

Well it was a SLOW week for the old girl - Sprayed only 1 load out - the farmers pulled the plug after that load - just too hot to apply - Only have 2 loads left to go = 220 or so .


But I did recieve a copy of a video that our county educator put together on the last N app on the plot , This was the first round and we both had problems on this pass finding our flags that we had out there - Yes - we were hard on the end rows there - for sure - lol  But my bar is a end row killer to start with in tall corn ! One other thing - my intell officer had to ride that round outside - I had a rider with my for that round - then were back on track and pulled in the right spot every time - here's the clip Then yesterday - we had had some visitors pull in - they were on a fund raiser for the local FFA group - total of 15 - 1 Co-op - One Oliver 1650 - 1 AC - a lot of A's , B's and 60 's - my favorite was the R - with the pony motor = very cool to hear start - something about a motor turning 10 - 12 grand , then start throwing handles






This ones from my neighbors place = NICE trees to sit under and shoot the breeze - lol 


BTW -- It was --------- HOT
