I'm just a fellow out standing in his field...
The Daily Strumpet is the continuation of the Daily Strumpet newsletter which started in 1983. Anything else is just a cheap ripoff.
You left out machinery malfunction and getting stuck in the mud.
A long time ago, I helped a friend disc a field. We started out with a 1270 and 1370 pulling 15' discs on a quarter section. We made one round and I looked at the 28' we had just covered and thought "lets do that again!" I always sort of figured that meant I was cut out to be a farmer. I am not, but still enjoy when I get to do it a little bit.
While I have occasionally fell asleep driving tractor I don't ever recall being bored. Certainly not yesterday driving in circles in ground far too muddy to work well. Stressful but everything worked and I was not even close to falling asleep, but close to stuck in the mud.
I remember I used to do a lot of baling and I was sick of looking over my shoulder to check for broken bales.
I'd like to do that, just be out there and go back and forth. I guess it pales on you with time but it sounds pretty good really.
Perhaps I'm just feeling grumpy
Sounds like a day of teaching but I can't get the tractor up the stairs.Grace and peace.
could get a run at it... have front wheel assist
Please leave a comment even if you are bored or don't agree with me...
