Close to half done
FTLComm - Tisdale - Saturday, September 15, 2007

This afternoon right after lunch I set out first to the North west then headed over to Valparasio, then south and east to Sylvania and then back into town.

The two John Deere machines were working only a few miles south of town beside the highway on a Canola field and this one and three others were working Canola north of Valparasio. From the dust coming from these machines it looks like things are dry enough and through out the course of my journey there were signs of combine dust all along.


As I drove along I kept noting fields done and those still awaiting combining and it looked pretty close to that half and half situation. There are still a lot of wheat and barley fields out there and I was disappointed to see quite a bit of lodging south of Valparasio. Though there are quite a few oat fields most of those are either still standing or are laying in swath.

I saw a couple of swathers working west of Sylvania.

Most of this year's Canola a crop is still out there in swaths but each day there is sunshine there will be less and less as the fields will be polished off.
