Is today. We are celebrating in the usual way...we're farming.
Boss is debating on trying to chop sorghum this afternoon. We have had a lot of rain lately. It is so muddy that he could wind up stuck and do more harm than good.
It was so darned dry all summer it really didn't get a start and is very short, so he has to weight the risks against potential benefit. A hard freeze is predicted for tonight. You can't feed it for a while after a frost, as it develops toxins that will kill cows, so it's now or much later, or possibly even never. Hate to lose the investment in seed and planting, but also hate to bury tractors.
It's good stuff though and I sure would like to see how the girls would milk if they got some along with their thrice-daily feedings of green chopped grass.
Anyhow, happy Farmers Day to you all.
