the garden took a Beating,, Again




This Barley field was 2 1/2' high and still had 45-50 bpa before this last storm hit that took it to the ground


This is a shot of the field I had just finished cutting with the 600 and had windrowed the straw for small squares, they were Beat into the ground and full of dirt and a total loss like the above Barley pics


As you can see here the water was running about 40 feet wide here, the strips caught the washed dirt down about 120 feet or this would have been 10 times worse than it was, you can also see the road rock it washed


The rains kept coming and keeping me out of the fields,, not that there was any crop left but still the Rain came down








My friend and hay buyer brought me his Sweet W-14 to bunch bales with, it had been 22 years since I had any seat time in a loader but I had not forgotten how to run one




The first pallet of parts books from a fellow dealer that had been CASE since 1966 the same year we started the dealership, cih gave the Case line to titian who had to build a store,, so my Case parts now come from NY State, there would end up being over 500 lbs of parts books from the 20's through current CE items








a water leak prompted me to speed up my remodeling of the kitchen counter,, Well I DID have the time with the crops gone and still WET so it all worked out fine,, I did end up spending a bit more time and money than I was planning though






I had to buy a new tool to cut the top out as I had less than 1/2" from the back splash,, WICKED to use if one made a mistake the way I set it up but it cut it out in no time and I still have all my fingers, I DO NOT recommend this setup

Jill got new curtains after this shot was taken,, I really do Love the new deep sink and faucet




The "New" to me VAI was brought down to do a rear rim replacement as it had been ran loose at some point Lucky for me I had a couple sets of 24" rims for them on hand








The 430G was put to work for a few hours on fixing roads up where the summer storms had washed them, here my water diversion ditch had silted in and was letting the water run down the road instead of off into the hay fields where it can do some good




The W-14 made pretty short work of bunching the 500 plus bales








I could not run over this water way second cutting to bunch the bales so the 955 was brought in to lay it down, I only made 4 round bales but every little bit helps this year lol


Heading to the last field to cut,, surprisingly the Millet I had planted was not affected much at all from all the hails



I was trying to beat a storm when I planted this Millet, instead of 15-20 lbs I got over 50lbs a acre, it was so THICK I cant believe it made any crop at all let alone what it did but that was all in thanks to the ground it was in and the heavy repeated H20 I got, it was 22" high, I have the 955 set to leave a average of 6" of stubble you can do the math,, the growth mat was the thickest I have ever cut with it being as short as it was, I had to PUSH it through the cutter bar/guards, the sickle ran very quite cutting it but pulled Hard as there was just so much material in each stroke to cut, I had tighten the sickle drive belt after the first round, the drive pulley got warm enough by the time I got the 9 acres cut it had discolored it, i let the header run for ten min at a idle to cool it down a bit even though the belt was Tight this was the first time I had ever really heard the 159 engine at work

Tom, Great pictures and description. But I have a question for you. What do you do with the millet crop? This is not a crop that we raise here in my part of Ohio.
BY THE WAY you are one great wood worker. Jerry from Ohio

Thanks Tom, nice variety of pics again. I do have one question, has the W14 you picked up bales with been around along time as I might have missed it or a later addition? Rod.

In the background of the W-14 picture, I see a Scatback 430 I think. I had one of those when they first came out. Quite a nimble machine. I bought mine when everybody else was buying skid steers. I got a lot of work because of that machine because it wouldn't tear up the ground (sod) like a skid steer, and it was light weight. I wore out two of those and was disappointed they were not making them anymore. It was one of the best machine I ever owned at that time.
When you have time, I would like to see more pictures of it if you could. Do you still use it, or is it a future project?

Rod, I WISH it was mine a good friend and hay customer/pasture renter brought it out for me to speed up bale bunching, I do plan on installing a fork like this one has on my W-5 with the bucket removed for bunching next year

It is Indeed a 430 Scatback,, mine has the Wisconsin air cooled power, I love the machine but sadly the hydrostat was about gone when I got it and I have not yet spent to coin to have it all redone, we had one on order at the dealership in 1975 with a dsl but it never came before we sold out, they did call and offer a gas like mine but Dad hated to sell gas powered machines in the construction industry I will get to it some day like you say they shine in many jobs over a skid steer and do comparable work, I had it running for this a photo shoot in 2012

Tom, I have found that if you load one or two pics then preview the post it will load faster. Just hit preview then return to form and continue as you were. Seems to eliminate that long load time, at least for me.

Thanks jon but I can only load two pics at a time and many today it would only take one at a time, I have to "preview" after at least every two pics loaded with the way I have my camera set, and when I get over 20 pics total loaded upload slows down even more, I got to this point today and it would not load any more no matter how many times I hit preview lol

Millet is a people food! Our son uses ground millet in a breading for various meats, before frying.

Yes it is a bitter disappointment, after all the toil you have invested. It really hurts, I can remember Tom, watching my Dad as him and I looked over fields that were hailed out. Then all of a sudden after seeing the damage, he would say, well there is always next year.

Hey after going through your pictures and watching your improvements, you can see things come back together after it was taken away.

I bet you enjoyed those books, I know its fun as you know I bought some myself, and they will help me figure out equipment on the farm. I hope someday to have everything at one place!

I bet it was still fun to cut the bumper crop of Millet. Kinda felt like job well done, I bet.

Enjoyed the pics Tom....

Dan,, your Dad and I have the same thoughts there,, I said the very same words and we both know it will be better next year, I also keep saying how much extra crop mass that ground will have on hand for the 2020 crop,, Did I just say 2020? Man that seems far away yet. The millet story does have more to be told but Yes indeed it was fun to do from start to finish in the year of the test, Thankfully I had zero breakdowns in it all through production

Yea, one just moves on, and it seems things get better.

Tom was going to comment on the picture above showing galvanize boxes of drills, what brand are they? Look like hoe.

Also saw your pic of the sky, and see the "chem trails" that they keep spraying on us,,, we have them up here too, and I keep wondering why they keep spraying that stuff on us. I do know here our dementia is up 64%

Dan, the drills Dad bought new, the one in 1967 a 12' 9" spacing hoe drill with rubber packers a Kirchman brand then, he was a new dealer that year, it was used to drill everything from that point until 1976 when he bought the second one and a mate to the first one other than it had steel packer wheels and they was a Melroe by then, they were good drills over the years, I have found 6" spacing to be much better for my ways of farming
