Alittle This, Alittle of That

During April, May, June there is a variety of crops planted.  We have already started with corn and last week dabbled with grain sorghum (milo).  While writing this post the other day my farmer husband was planting soybeans.  In fact, he planted soybeans from about 5:00 p.m. one night until 1:00 a.m. , then headed back out to the field the next morning about 9:30 a.m.

To plant the soybeans we use our John Deere grain drill/air seeder.

The picture below shows him attaching the hydraulic hoses from the drill to the the tractor.  He will operate the drill/air seeder from inside the tractor.

The grain drill is ready to head to the field! This was taken about 45 minutes after we got back from a weekend away! 🙂 Had to get the soybeans in before the rain came through!
