I planted 85 acres today! Whoop! Whoop!

I planted 20 acres yesterday, many things went wrong. The field was 100 acres I ended up with 105 which is pretty good.
I did 85 acres today. I started at 7:30 and finished at 11:30 this evening. It is pretty good considering the seed was in 50lb bags.
I planted Montezuma oats for hay into a killed fescue seed field. Fellow is going to make them into hay for export to Japan.
Soooo, 120lbs/acre x 105 acres = 12,600lbs / 50lb bags = 252 bags of seed I dumped in the drill. I had help from the farmer for several fill-ups. The worst part was mixing the seed treatment. I hate messing with chemicals.
He did bring me a sausage from a deer his 16 year-old daughter shot by herself. I was impressed at her willingness to kill the young prince. Bambi will be lonely!
Listened to bluegrass on KBOO, followed by the Greatful Dead until I started to go nuts with the hour long jams, so I switched to my iPod. Four hours of Lefty Frizzell, Hank Sr., George Jones, The Bails brothers and Tom Petty. My worldview has got to be a little off kelter...
