Soybean harvest is in full swing. Monday morning I was on my way to Lowe's and got the call to "abort" that plan and go straight to John Deere. The combine header is giving the hubs some major trouble. The good thing, was that they had the parts in stock and were waiting on me when I got there, lol. I didn't even have to stand in line.
The fire ants are ridiculous. The ant hills are very corse and rough on the combine to ingest. It is so bad here in NC that our county (and about 39 others) have been quarantined. We can't sell hay to anyone outside of our county because we will spread it more.
The chemical companies better get onto it stat, because this is getting out of hand fast. The hubs has noticed that certain fields that were sprayed with different chemicals aren't as bad. And no, he can't just pick up the header when he sees one, because it would never get put back down.
One fella that the hubs went to school with told me it is so bad in one of his fields that he won't get off of the tractor to pee, lol. If you have ever stepped in a hill, you understand.
That is about it for now. Runs for parts and calls to check the market, and come be a "follow behind" vehicle are filling my days. More later.
