General Discussion / Re: Corn ripeness
« on: Today at 11:38:42 AM »
I never grew anything but field corn, but side dressed at lay-by with ammonium nitrate. When the ears looked full and felt firm I pulled back the shuck , used my thumb nail on the kernels & looked at the milk. Not too scientific but it worked for me.

Had I known this idea would have been this popular I would have taken and posted pictures. The first layer was fairly easy but at the base of the tines was tight . The Dremel Multi-Max cut through it pretty good.

forget that it is laying there and wrap it up in the tractor tiller----then you'll have several more short pieces as you cut it out

newhome,  two 60' rows with production about to get in abundance I would suggest using that xtra space for something else. You will have okra with what you got till frost is on the punkin.

Dan, one thing for sure about using kerosene on the places where chiggers always seem to stop go naked for plenty of air circulation, if not you'll blister like you won't believe.

while you're in the zone of contact about a little horse fly see if you can find out about the chiggers, but in doing so be sure to give thanks that they ain't as big as a flea and for sure a horse fly.

that little tater vine did good---your putting on more gravy reminded me of something---as a cook in the National Guard a favorite line was "put some gravy on it & eat it anyhow"

thank ya'll so very much, I was still 18 when Jewel became pregnant, scared, no job and not a lot of money. Bob put a hand on my shoulder and told me there was something out there for me that I would be very good at. I knew he meant it, later he put an arm around Jewel and me both and told us we would have his and Virginia's full support and always be beside us. They have always been there from the beginning and now. The morning our baby was born Bob was out of town for a business trip. Here is a picture of a telegram he sent by 2 that afternoon.----What a legacy this man has left for to celebrate.-

Happy Hour / Our Brother-In-Law died last evening
« on: June 02, 2018, 04:59:37 PM »
I have mentioned Bob and Virginia many times in our forum discussions. Bob was 97 years old, suffered no illness he just quietly passed on. This is the only time I've had to say I don't think I can be the main speaker for a funeral service. It was an honor to me that I was asked, it is still an honor that the family wants me to personalize Bob, I have known him for about 68 years. I will do that. Virginia is holding up the best she can, they would soon be married 77 years. Being a month away from 82 years old myself I ask your prayers as I try to fulfill this request for a man who has given so much to others.
