Morning boys. 44 here with a wind off of the lake. Heading for a high of 50 today. I am not ready for it yet either Dutch. But I am getting excited to ice fish. I must just be  :crazy: in the head. It just seems like we had no summer this year. Poof it was gone. Got the grass cut last night and thru some blankets over the tomatoes just in case. But the wind never stopped blowing last night. Oh well, I t will be easier to put them blankets on tonight. Well, just another day in the salt mines. Have a good one boys.

Morning boys.  It just dropped to 33 here.  Fairly calm.  I too would like to go fishing but was too windy and cold yesterday. Gonna warm up in a day or two.  The older I get the nicer I like the weather to be when in the boat.  It does seem like we got cheated out of summer with the water so high and no boat in the water.
 Have a good one.

Mornin' gang! 45 at choretime heading for a high in the upper 50's. Still a few yield checks to finish so a perfect day to do some of those. Some corn has come off for early contracts and some are starting on beans where they're ready. Soybeans are decent, around 12% moisture, but the early corn has been outstanding so far. They should ring the bell with their later stuff if our yield estimates are any indication. Sounds like I've got a few more small square bales coming yet off my ace mechanic's field sometime so need to get mentally prepared for that. It's been really nice stuff so I ain't turning it down. That and he helped unload and stack the last batch. I never say no to help for stacking hay.

The deck from the Cub is in the truck headed to town to be pressure washed along with a garbage can that someone (wife) put a container of used cooking oil in it with a loose cap........What a mess. I already put the pressure washer away here so that's the reason for going to town and carwash. Next project is modifying the hinges on a 6310 Aluma trailer. Going to cut off the aluminum hinges and replace them with three bolt flange bearings and a couple of pieces of 3/4" round CRS. That banging and clanging back there drives me nuts. Should go fishing..........later... :happy1: :happy1:

Turn up the radio Mark.  ;) :rotflmao: :rotflmao: Morning boys. 35 here and heading for 62 today. Looks like we will escape the frost at our place. At least the covers over the maters keep the dang deer out of them. Thinking I may put a piece of clear poly over them to keep her out of them. Lots of green maters and would like to give them a chance to turn if I can. Don't need her knocking them on the ground and half eating them Like she did last Friday night. Big meeting at the court house tonight about what they are going to do with the roads going into Sandy Shores and Birch Beach. About 7 years ago the county out the cheap double chip on the road and the frost is constantly ripping it apart. Now they are talking about putting it back to gravel. Anything else we need to pay for.  :angry2: Well, just another day in the salt mines. Have a good one boys.

Mornin' gang! 31 at choretime heading for a high around 60. Purty frosty this a.m. across the region. Low temps included 30 at Waseca and Albert's Leaf with Owatonna at 28. Not sure it was a real killer at the ranch however. We'll know as the morning unfolds. Picked a lot of garden stuff and covered it last nite. Some friends came and picked a 5 gallon bucket full of string beans too. Hopefully that & the frost mean the end of bean picking. Soybeans are coming off. Pleasant surprises even in the fields that had a fair amount of SDS. Some of the fields that didn't are running over 80 bu./acre with moistures in the 11 - 13% range. Only problem is the stems are green so combines need to be adjusted or they'll throw too much out the back. I agree Barry. When I grow up, I wanna be just like Gunner!  :happy1:

Calling it a hard freeze here. Things I didn't cover are toast. Even some that I covered are crispy around the edges. Sounds like some nice days ahead.

Trailer project about 75% done, should get it knock out today. Tried the radio thing JB. Wife thinks it's too loud as is. :rotflmao: Guess she doesn't like Led Zeppelin as much as me. Hoping to get a couple of loads of pit-run gravel today to fill in the side of the North side of the garage and new driveway up to it. That will give me some seat time on the Kubota. Have a great day all, later..... :happy1: :happy1:

Mornin gents, 41 here & headed towards 65. We pulled our boat yday ~ 4 & we're headed to Bowens over on Winnie. Been hearin of a good bite goin on over there for the last month or 2 & it's been super slow here. We used to go over there(Winnie) a couple times a year when Mom & Dad were still around but we usually went to the PA at Mosomo Pt. We checked that out on our way back from town yday & it was packed. So, we'll travel just a bit further & have a lot less commotion :crazy: when put in & take out our rig. Got a few loose ends to tie up yet so I better roll. Hopin your Thursday's a good 1.

Morning boys. 48 here and heading close to 70 today. Looks like the forecast has some rain for this morning. Meeting at the county went good. Had a pretty good turn out. But, that is to be expected when they are talking about special assessments. No matter what at this time in 2023 the county is going to turn the double chip back into gravel with a reclaim asphalt mixed in. The are going to drain tile and fix the areas where the frost heaves have ripped up the double chip. That should have been done before the first time double chip. But, oh well. Then in 24 or 25 the decision to leave as gravel, double chip or pave will be made. The show of hands last night though, the majority want to leave as gravel since there will be no special assessment then. Lots of retired folks on fixed incomes that don't need their taxes raised and neither do I. Grocery shopping after work tonight. Otherwise just another day in the salt mines. Have a good one boys.

Morning boys.  So what is double chip JB.  Granite chips?  That is usually pretty good stuff.  Doesn't need to be graded as much.  We have a shortage of gravel here in LOW County.  I didn't realize that until I worked there.  They have a new pit now so maybe they are in good shape now. I hit the river for awhile yesterday afternoon.  Caught a few.  There are lots of little sauger bait stealers too.  Have a good one.

Mornin' gang! 38 at choretime heading for a high in the mid-60's. More harvest progress yesterday after the frost. It toasted things pretty good but not everything. Around our yard stuff like the impatiens and cannas weren't touched. Usually if you leave the freezer open too long in the house they die. String beans, a couple peppers and tomatoes where they were downslope were affected. Out in the open fields it was more general. Can smell it on the breeze this a.m. Need to make a run to Chatfield to pick up some stuff off my folks gravesite then see what else needs doing. Pitter patter, let's get at 'er.

LPS double chip is a layer of oil then a layer of small rock(like pea rock). They do about 4 layer to make it about an inch thick. He said last night that is should have about a 6 year life. This is year 6. But the frost beat it up the first year. At least the 1 mile of the east end. The west end is in pretty good shape. The talked about the gravel shortage in LOW county. So still not much better.

Ok never heard of that on a gravel road.  Usually a seal coat on blacktop to extend it's life and works pretty good for that.

Hi guys, back from various travels.   No frost in Cawchester, since my pot of basil is still green.

Morning boys.  We have a nice morning.  44 here and clear.  Got some projects done yesterday.  Put electric fence around the bales so the horses don't tear them apart.  They have no interest in them as we have plenty of green grass in the pasture yet.  Since it is Friday I will have a fire going when the wife gets home from work.  Will cook and camp out there tonight.  Looking forward to it.

Mornin guys, 48 here & they say 70 will be the high. The trip to Winnie was fun but a bit of a letdown as it was kind of cool, I'm glad we dressed warm. The fishing was pretty slow too & the landing at the resort wasn't the best either. Got a boat ride in already & a few clothes hangin on the line. Gonna be another nice day, so I'll find something outside that needs doin. Bout it here, have a great day!!
