With the help of a friend, he and I are going to plant 1/8 acre of sweet corn using my Farmall B/B99 planter. Also on the list are purple hull peas, butter (lima) beans, okra, crook neck yellow squash, and zucchini squash. Who knows, the list may grow between now and April. :roll:

I use a similar method of release. Their website implies a live release. I’d like to see a video of them doing it.

A B or BN, you see, I have a BN, and bought / sold another BN, but I have not saw any of the B planters out in the wild!

Please post some pics when you get it all set up and planting!

The type wire that I used. Much easier to handle than high tensile.

One year I did the 3 wire electric fence for rabbits and it does work,--also coons stay away for the most part but now and then one does get in. I have to use live traps here due to the cats being outside. I have best luck with getting coons to go into the big wolf traps that I tried to get coyotes in but it dont work for them,---only coons and rabbits go in.
Jim!--wish I were closer to you,--I would take some grape plants!
Winter is kinda open here right now,--strange year and Feb. is usually the real azz kicker for us with below zero temps for days on end.
We have quite a bit of saved seed but need a few packets yet to fill in with.
Dug a couple horseradish roots and ground them the other day since ground not froze yet.
Also have several big water tanks and pumps for this year and 3 more old tillers that didnt take much to get running. That makes about a dozen now and I will need them all for the season.
Working on the tractors a bit getting them ready to go. Making a bigger water tote to pull with a cub this year to save trips to the tanker. Will still use the 110 gallon jobber and the sunstar to go between the rows and water the new transplants.
This year we plan on more corn and cabbage ,---less sweet potatoes and tomatoes. The food bank will take anything we grow cept food grade pumpkins and they will take truckload lots so that is the plan for most of what we grow this year. We donated a lot last year and plan on doing it again this year.
Still making veggie soup from all of our stored stuff. A friend gave us some deer burger and that goes great in the soup!

Been planting hardwood trees along the road fence. Have walnut, hard maple, cottonwood, and a couple of unknown flowering trees in the row.
Cedars are planted across the front yard where the pines died.

Kinda a busy winter here trying to get stuff ready.

Onion plants came on Monday, ground froze, today its thawed but we got rain and mud. Next 4 days look nasty so we had to store the plants in the basement til we can get them in the ground! Last year it took 2 weeks before it got dry enough to mud them in!

My garlic is comming up, some onions and parsley plants survived the winter it looks.

Too early to tell whether a few late tranplanted cabbage plants that was started from cores survived.

Have 2 cabbage plants going strong indoors that was started from cores also.

Curious to see if the cabbage plants that was started from a core will do anything productive!

Fall planted garlic is doing great. Only 2 days where ground was frozen and then down 2 or 3 inches.

Planted english walnut, hazel nut, and one apple seedling 3 weeks ago. Only had to water during planting. Since the planting, rain, mud, more mud, and freezing temps.
I have an excuse. CRS.

Dusty Burton has his potatoes planted and was waiting on the onion plants so he can plant them! --- HE has his garden in a HOOP HOUSE!! LOL! Weather no problem for him!
Mud here today, also high winds.
Might plant some of this garlic from the store this year and leave it in the ground for another year to see if it will bulb or not since I didnt get any planted last fall.
Some of the seed germ tests went great,---some bombed out! nuttin! could be another year for bad seed!

Got the onions planted finally! 11 rows 130 feet long and While crossing the other garden I found 1 surviving parsnip, so I had to stop and dig it! Had it for supper!

I plant the grocery store, garlic and elephant garlic cloves in the fall. Much less expensive than mail order and they actually produce nice bulbs.

Kinda wonder since I have some store garlic in a sack, IF I planted it this spring and leave it for another year if it would bulb since I cant keep it til fall. I'm in no hurry for it, - -just an experiment to see what it would do.
Mail order stuff dont seam to be had in the fall here so thats why I never get any planted on time! --- well plus kinda costly! lol!
