I was supposed to catch up my banking, billing, and finish getting my taxes together today.
I got the banking caught up at least.
The weather and timing was perfect for what I wanted to try with transitioning the clover field to sunflowers, so the rest of my day went towards that.
I broadcasted the sunflower seeds across the waning clover. Then I mowed it into a thick green slurry to go over the seeds and hold moisture to them. We'd just had a good rainfall last night, so it was slushy.
My hope is that this will be an effective no till method and that sunflowers will be sprouting in just a few days. Cool nights should provide decent moisture and mild sunny days are forecast until the weekend, when it turns a bit more in the direction of Summer.
The Grass Out Max (Clethodin) that I bought for the Christmas tree plot and perennial clover plots is proving to be invaluable, as research indicates that it will not harm sunflowers or wildflowers (tinkering with them too).
Time will tell.

We even got a brief shower just as I finished up and a nice rainbow appeared for a bit as I was feeding the fish.

That should look pretty awesome when they begin to flower. Nothing cooler than looking at a field of sunflowers, and knowing exactly where the sun is located. Makes for some cool time lapse photography too....

This grey, wet, cool weather is giving the farmers fits getting crop in, but it sure is pleasant for outdoor work and shooting. Little to no mirage, light winds, etc... Dirt work done, it was the 308’s turn today with only a 12 mph wind at 11 o’clock. Easy money at 655 yards.

Decided to fill a low spot in the lawn today. More than likely where a backhoe buried an old building of some sort. Settled over the years and I got tired of mowing through 9’x18’ sink hole. 2 cubic yards later of black dirt shoveled off the ol’ Dodge.

Thought the Diverticulitis flared back up. Nope. Good ole fashioned appendicitis. Antibiotics for a few days and no blood thinner for a couple days as well then chop chop. Does it ever stop?
Well that certainly sucks!
Best of luck with the surgery and recovery.
Thankfully I had my appendix removed in '84.

Nothin to it Uncle Schartz.

Some Ruskie took out his own using local numbing meds at the incision and a mirror once while over-wintering on Antartica.
Swing on over and I can fix ya right up!

And remember, your prostate is gone, so stop asking the nurse to check for it every time HE is in the room!

Feel better old man.
