Garden is Coming Along

Postby Brandon Webb » Thu May 25, 2017 10:31 am

Scaled down my garden a little this year, just wasting to much and didn't sell anything. Potatoes are coming along nicely, peppers and tomato's next to them. Planted the remaining 10 rows in Merit sweet corn. Planted 6 rows of country gentleman corn and 3 rows of peanuts down the road at my other garden. Just wanted to try my peanut plate out. Corn just popped out of the ground yesterday it's about 1 inch out of the ground. Can't wait to try out my rotary weeder when it dries up. So far just a monsoon around here it may not get dry enough to try.

Good looking soil. Is your windmill up and running?

I was thinking the same thing. It may be because it's wet, but it looks to be something other than clay, which is what we have on this side of the Mississippi River.

Is the second pic corn that wasn't pollinated properly or does that variety produce staggered/offset rows of kernels? Looks good enough to eat. White sweet corn is a favorite.

It's a shoe peg type heirloom corn that grows that way. I found the super rare plates for my cub planter so I ordered some seed and have been growing it a couple years now. Yeah my windmill is up and running. It will pump the old well dry in about 30 minutes. That's the old house my grandfather was born in. The well is from the same era. We plan on tearing it down someday now that my grandparents are in the nursing home but it currently houses all my cub parts. Someday I'll drill a new well somewhere on the farm and fix it up right where I can use the water.

I would love to have an AeroMotor in working condition. Several "towers" around but not much in the way of windmill parts.

I traded for this one, found it on craigslist. It came to KY from Hayes, Kansas via a guy who bird hunted out there every year. Him and his buddies flipped for it so he won it and brought it home with the intentions of putting it up on his farm in Northern KY but he never got around to it. I traded him a restored antique gas pump that dad and I had fixed years ago. It's a model 702 which has the replaceable bearings so it was very easy to rebuild. You don't want a model 602 they have poured in babbit bearings and unless your super handy they would be a booger to rebuild. I would love to have a 3 legged tower, I bought one after I had this one put up, but sold it. The ladder is on the side of them and they are really easier to climb. If you find one of those you should pick it up.
