Drilling Forage Peas

 We spent the last two days putting in the peas after field had finally dried out enough to get a tractor through. Dad disc'd it first and I followed drilling in Admiral DS Forage Peas. The peas will be harvested around the first of August, after which we'll drill in Kernza, a perennial wheat "grass". We hope to have our first Kernza harvest a year later, selling what we've grown through the Perennial Promise Growers Co-op.

It was the first time I'd used the Loup monitor. It went fairly well, though there were some adjustments that I made about half way through the field to get everything set properly.

Grain Bin Pad: Finished

(Click on any picture to make it bigger.)


After the concrete foundation is poured they'll bring the grade around the concrete up to the finished level (what I and the dog are standing on).

Here's a link the pdf of the bin foundation specs provided by Sukup, the bin manufacturer.
