Plowing Up Peanuts and Grading Papers

image

We are plowing up peanuts on this lovely fall day! We have had a good harvest so far, with the exception of a few breakdowns and rain interruptions.

This year we have had the chance to lease a Challenger to plow up peanuts and pick with. Boy has it been nice! I’ve actually been able to ride comfortably on the buddy seat instead of a arm rest! (Buddy seats also make it easier to grade history tests while spending quality tractor time with the hubby)

The Challenger has allowed us to gather more efficiently because it can haul the bigger equipment better than some of the other tractors. We were a little anxious about using it at first, having no experience with the brand, but we have found that it is just like a Massey Ferguson. That makes my red-tractor-loving husband very happy!

I’m sorry for the long time between posts! It has been a busy time on the farm and it doesn’t look like it will slow down anytime soon. We start cotton harvest as soon as we finish with peanuts. Hopefully, we will have yall a cotton post up in the future!
