Little glowing arrows

I want to plant annual ryegrass as early as possible so it is above the water level on our farm. After no-tilling for a number of years you forget how many trips you have to make across a field. It won't pack, my little helper had an accident with the heavy roller, I'm trying to make hay, and the dust is so thick at night I can't see a thing.
I'm attempting to use GPS but it is much more difficult than playing Super Mario brothers on the Wii.
I kept looking for the end of the field and suddenly I caught a hint of a reflector. I put the clutch in at the very last moment.

I knew I should have parked on the other side of the ditch...
Just about smashed by nephew's favorite pickup...


  1. I guess that settles it. 'Lulu' has to do the nighttime planting!

  2. It would be a shame to squish such a fine piece of automotive engineering with a tractor. Besides what would I use to pull Nissans out of manure piles with if it weren't around?

  3. You might be able to pass this picture off as an alien abduction.

  4. Ach Der Leiber Gott! The Return of the Dust Bowl?

    I will probably see you on a History Channel special here soon. ;-)

  5. With the pickup on the other side of the may have found yourself in the ditch.
