Is that Gillette in the background of the first picture?

Looks a lot like North Central ND (Towner County) where I grew up. That's the approximate area where Ande hangs out.

The comment about "woman behind every tree" did apply but shelter belt planting has increased the trees, can't say if it's increased the women!!
I looked up the Wyoming coal stuff and WOW the area south of Gillete is pretty impressive.

Nice area, reminded me of my time spent in Minot ND. I was told before I got there.. " Their is a woman behind every tree" They were right..

Not much happening here, just to dry. What little snow we did have didn't go far.

Well, Bro,
Like I told you this morning, we're a dam long ways from getting into most of the fields here. Had snow squalls all afternoon. Temp back down in 20s now, and probably won't get out of them tomarrow, with more snow. What do you think we could plant in this field in the upper forty? Took the pic yesterday in the upper 40, the other about 3:30 today. I thought about packing the white stuff around your stuff in the flat rate box, but figured it would make the box soggy by the time it got to you. HeHe.

Tom,
Always good to see dirt being worked by a Case tractor. Hope you get some rain. Don

Don, At least some places in the country are working ground. But probably be at least 2-3 weeks before we can get out. I still have snow in the ditches of my plowed fields. Last year I was done planting oats on March 29. Al

Al,

We still have about 2/3 snow and ice cover here. So I'm guessing it will be approx.30 days until anything moves here. Still can't determine what the wheat and hay look like though. Don

Don,
Same here. Some wheat seems to have a little green to it where the snow melted but don't see much green-up on the hills yet. No green showing up on my alfalfa field either. The north facing doors on my machine shed are still froze up. Al

Tom its good to see things are progressing and the equipment is doing a nice job. Those equipment issues we can fix, but the H20 problems all we can do is wait to see what mother nature will throw at us. Can't wait to see the barley going in. Rod.

the guy that had this tractor before me made a plate for the 1070 then bolted the Ford weight bracket to that I will change it very soon as he covered up the grease zerk on the axle pivot, as soon as I get over another 100 acres with this tool I will fix that problem as those small weights are not really enough for my applications

Case Nutty,

How many acres is that field? Never see that expanse in my corner of the northeast.

Today's Featured Article - Recollections of a John Deere GP - by Charlie Cook. I grew up on my dad's 280 acre general farm in Western Michigan. Dad's only tractor when I was very young was the old GP. My first recollection of this tractor was when dad allowed my brother and myself to ride on the tractor with him driving. One of us would sit on the left fender (away from the clutch) and other would sit on the gas tank and hold onto the crankcase breather pipe. ... [Read Article]
