It never ends..

With harvest ending so early in October this fall gave way to be more productive preparing for 2013 crop as well as getting some work done in the yard.

With the forgiving weather we were able to get fertilizer spread.

 As well as all the ground got worked...

Some days tillage maintenance is more extensive than others.
 Once the field work was in good shape it was time to get to work on the yard. We had planned to move the old shop across the yard to be used as the agronomy shed which will hold our chemical, fill water trucks, etc. The pad was prepared and poured..

Once the pad for the old shop was ready we wanted to get the yard raised a bit more to be level with the's a labor intensive process hauling in clay, spreading fabric, gravel, and leveling it all.

It is raised up now level to the shop, this is the slope it was when we started.
 Once the yard was ready it was time to move the old shop...with the weather forcast set to change the crew came in and had it moved the same day while it was snowing.

New home!

Makes the front of the shop look quite different now

There is still more work to be done in the yard and we will raise the front of the shop where the old shop sat so everything is level but think it will have to wait as now winter is upon us. More progress outside in the yard will be made next year, we are looking forward to having a central agronomy hub  in the old shop ready for use this spring. For now it will be winter projects..including the blog master to study the camera manual to take better pictures especially in the North Dakota lack of quality light (some of these are a bit dark).
