Terry finished cultivating the corn and the pinto beans.
He likes to use the 730 because the clutch is a hand clutch and not a foot clutch.
There will be one more cultivation of the pinto beans, but the corn is too tall now. As soon as the bean shoot feelers all tractor work is done until harvest. The only thing left (on tractor work) is making alfalfa into hay.
Of course we will continute to irrigate, changing the water every 8 hours. Water is short, with reports that it could get shorter.
It’s hot. But we are having some moisture flowing in from Mexico after noon.
We cool down when it comes in which is really nice.
But we heat back up after the storm moves on.
That’s summer for you in our part of the high mountain desert!
Here’s how I cultivate! 🙂 This hoe never seems to leave my hand…I have it my yard, in the garden, and helping remove Canada Thistle, Star Thistle, Sticker Weed, Nodding Thistle, and other nasty stuff, which gets between the bean plants. Once the beans shoot feelers I won’t have to be out there, but until then….
Summer is lots of work, but I would rather have summer than winter. Terry, now, he would rather have cold, dark, dreary, drab winter. Oh, oops! I think those are my words.
The Fourth of July is tomorrow. (and then by Tuesday they should have the part to fix my internet receiver! YEA!)
Happy 4th, everyone!
