We need to keep our wheat field (make that proto-wheat field) disked to keep the weeds from spreading. Trouble is, of course, our tractor has been down all summer. Always happens.
So yesterday we borrowed a neighbor's tractor, hooked up our disker, and Don spent a solid hour going over the soil and churning under the weeds.
See the difference between the disked versus the un-disked sections?
It looks much better! We should be able to buy treated seed wheat within a couple of weeks and (theoretically) be able to plant within the next month. We'll be planting hard red winter wheat, which is planted in the late summer or early fall, goes dormant over the winter, then is harvested oh, about now (meaning August) in these parts. Hopefully this is an experiment that will work!
