Friday, I went and checked my corn that I had planted on May 13th. Not a single bit of it had come up. I found a few kernels that had turned to "mush" in the ground. I guess the seed was old I was using, or maybe I planted it too deep. I got it from a friend that farms. Of course, I just noticed that the day I planted it was Friday the 13th :shock: Maybe that had something to do with it...

So I spent another day replanting my corn Saturday, with good seed this time ! Here's hoping it gets a rain soon.

We are supposed to have 40% chance down this way for this evening, but I think it's the weekend before anymore might come our way....hate you had to replant, but maybe it'll come on this time.

ivygun3, i guess i was just practicing. The second planting has come up, but............

the dern crows have pulled up nearly 1/3rd of the corn, and my nephews took care of a lot more by riding 4-wheelers over the top of it :roll: I am going to give it another week to see if it straightens out, then replant what I have to for a 3rd time ...

how's the old hee-haw song go, "if it weren't for bad luck , i'd have no luck at all.............."

sounds to me like a fence of some sort would solve your problems. or either we gonna have a party with some steaks cooking, buttkicking, and helping fixing what they tore up, whale of a time.

i just had to give them a "talking too". None of them have been raised around crops, and it just looked like a "dirt" field to them. they are young, and they will learn :D It's not like I never did anything stupid when I was a kid :lol: I'm pretty sure the corn they rode over will straighten up. Its just the corn the crows pulled up is what I'm worried about.

You need to bust a couple of those crows and hang them in field to let the others know they may be next. works for me. call-em up and blast-em :lol:

well, the corn saga continues.....

i checked my corn this morning.. .Looks like I will be heading to the feed & seed store this afternoon, to get another bag of round-up ready corn to plant; for the 3rd time...

let's hope that the old saying is true: "the 3rd time's the charm"....

this time i'm putting up scarecrows !

Saturday afternoon, 97 degrees, and I replanted my corn. Next step, build me some scarecrows to keep those no good overgrown black-birds from pulling up all my corn.

On the bright side, It looks like a pretty good shower is fixing to hit us !! We are almost 8" below normal in rainfall for this time of year !!!

GTK, KILL them crows or keep spending. you choice :roll:
I planted some soybeans and corn yesterday before the rains came and expect to see them up in a couple of days. I have set a digital trailcam out to watch for crows and turkeys and if I see them crows, I'll be hunting them....

thx for the crow pics ivy :P

to paste your pics here (after I approve them), just go to the pic in the photo album, right click on "view image" or "show picture" (depending on what browser your using) and copy that URL..

Put that url in the post surrounded by [i m g] and [/ i m g] (remove the spaces)

i'll put the crow pic in your post, so you can edit it and see what I did.

To add this picture ... ts%233.JPG to a post,

Go to

in internet explorer, "right click" on the picture and copy the "address/URL" path that shows up.

Add that text between the [ img ] and [/ img ]

In Netscape, "right click" on the picture and choose "copy image location" or "view image". Take that URL and post it between the tags [ i m g] and [ / i m g]

The URL you are copying and pasting, is the link to the "Photo Album" page, not the actual image itself.

Let me know if I explained that better this time .. I'm not the best at giving instructions :)
