I've Been A Real Crab Ass Lately

And I'm sorry. The weather, not planting, blah blah blah, are no excuse. So, sorry.

We're continuing to work in the shop. Put some new fertilizer gauges on my planter today. There went some more money. Found out the hydraulic drive on my planter is shit. More money. I've lost about $1,200 in repairs and parts the last couple of days. That's part of being a farmer and owning your own business. On the bright side, I did sell some corn for October/November delivery for $6.19/bushel. That'll help a fella out.

I'm hoping to be in the field Friday, planting by Saturday. Or Sunday. Or it might rain Friday night. Who the hell knows?

  1. I was grumbling about a $400 car tune-up recently, but your twelve hundred puts that into perspective...
