You left out a picture of the old John Deere!

How do you keep your work clothes so clean Haymaker?

Thanks for the pics.

For us, it has been hot and dry. Four miles either way of us have had good rains and the crops look good there. I was just in the corn field and there is one ear per stalk. Last year there were 2 good size ears per stalk. But we can't complain, we do have a crop. I don't feel we will have to worry about getting the corn dried down enough, it is very advanced and denting hard. Beans are changing fast also. Now the fun begins; harvesting the fruits of our labor.
