I got 13 acres of mostly native grass with a little bit of Bermuda sprayed today with Gordon's weed/feed 15-0-0.

Next time gonna try Ikes, and for the weed part, just add one ounce Amine 400, 2-4D per gallon of water for weed control.
Looks like the 2.5 gallon runs about $80 if you can find it in stock.

Lots of birds this time of the year.
All the birds on list were here, the ones highlighted were calling at the time.

Auction prices are good. Sucks we were not able to get calves off the wild herd. We dropped molasses tubs in the corral yesterday. Hopefully we can get the herd more comfortable coming and going into that area. One of the other herds we were unable to get about half the calves to come into the corral.
Probably attemp another round up next Wednesday.

Around these parts, that’s preparation for a first date……😃😃
My oldest boy brought his girlfriend(city girl) last year to the farm. And her first visit, she was out there cutting seedling/1st year mesquites with him! Told the Laundry Fairy, aka wife, that my boy better keep her.

I hung a bug zapper in the kitchen, lol,
Trying to get rid of these damn fruit flies. It will be funny when the Laundry Fairy makes it in. I probably should record this.

nice custom job..... I use rusty pipe wrenchs to make similar kinks to tighten strands.
Guy who runs our local dumps keeps his eye out for me and makes sure he gives any that comes through to me.
I hang them on the fence posts and leave them out all year.
Not kidding when I say probably have 50+.... neighbours probably think I am a mad plumber or something hanging pipe wrenches on fence posts.

Raining stupid hard. I can probably accept the loss of seed on several acres. That's OK, long term (30day) forecast shows more favorable chances of rain. This time last year we were reducing cattle herds and at the end of May 2022 all cows on my place went to auction.
