Lots of not so clear pics but hope they convey the events. Pics are from Friday planting and food Saturday night and Sunday am.
Game plan was to leave the house Friday at 6:45 am be at the Justin Fees Store at 7:30 opening get my stuff and off I go, right
Well the wife had a few request before I boogied. Stopped at Buc-ees at 114 and I35 get gas $2.52, diesel $2.75 and corn 50 lb $6.45 I like that place now up the road to Justin Seed Co.
First time buying my seed and fertilizer there, checked out their web site and decided to go with some Texas A&M certified seeds (TAMO).
Went with 3 bags of TAMO 411 Oats and 2 bags of TAMO 114 Wheat the guy at the counter seemed very knowledgeable and liked my choices.
Fertilizer I requested 13-13-13 and he asked me where I was planting, I told him north of Jacksboro so he recomended I use 20-10-10 because it has more Nitrogen and usually that was what the Sandy Loam soil needs the most of, so okay thats what I got
The man has me sign a document that states I will not resell the seeds or grow them for resell because of their proprietary property rights I guess?
Jump on the tractor get it disced no problem, had issue with my spreader so I had to run into town and rent a buggy from H Brand and David was not to happy that I did not buy my stuff from him so he charged me accordingly
Got it planted and it is dark now, borrow a friends rail road track to cover seed & fertilizer with. I am making my first pass next to the woodline to the west, lights on bucket lifted high so the lights shine on the field and all of the sudden about 6 hogs come jogging out of the woods dang near in front of me no more than 15-20 yards out. They decide to not cross in front but are going parallel with me for about 30 yards and casually cruise away. I tried recording it on my cell phone at 7:49 pm but you cannot see the pigs for it was to dark and I was to late
Had to leave at 6:00 am Friday to drop buggy back off and get home
So here are the pics from Friday.
Tried a couple of funny selfies and the were ugly so here is mad max heading to the field.
Rear end of the bugs on the windshield heading home almost to Denton.
