Richard, you were laying them out really good. I could tell by watching your were enjoying yourself, you offered me a turn and I turned it down. As far as you drove to the fest you needed to keep right on having fun. :lol:
Looks nice Boss . :wink:

That dirt looks like the dirt at my Dad's place in Alabama. Post us some pictures as it grows. Thanks for the pictures.

Looks real good boss, real good. With any luck it'll stop raining and warm up here in Mass so that we can plant corn too.

Boss,

How much fertilizer do you put down?

I was only going to sidedress one time, but you might have me convinced to do it a couple times!

Man, that is a lot of fertilizer. I plan on putting down 150 lbs/acre of 46-0-0 on my first acre of corn. I was planning on that being all for the season. My corn is about the same as the corn in your picture from a few weeks ago.

By the way, do you have a picture of your cultivator/sidedresser setup? I am going to put my sidedresser on the tractor for the first time this week.

Thanks,

Matt
