And on a random, but totally related note, you should watch Leap Year (the movie) if you're feeling particulary festive. It's guaranteed cheese, but kinda cute for your inner cheesy self.
Happy leap year 2012 (whatever that means).
Because I haven't figured out how to add fancy arrows on the picture to demonstrate what I'm saying, please be patient with me as I try to explain. Do you see the spikey circles in the back? Well in front of those are round discs, and in front of those round discs are little sprayers that put the fertilizer into the ground between 7 and 9 inches. Then the spikey thing packs the dirt back down so the ground is ready for the seed. In the process / timeline of farming, fertilizer is applied first. Now that’s not to say it’s only applied one time in a crop's life cycle, but the ground should be treated first to provide nutrients for the planted seed. So, if Farmer Tim decides it needs another round of nutrients, it can be done AFTER the seed has been planted.
This silver bullet is our wheat drill, which moonlights as a total babe magnet.
|Tim's really excited about the trip...and this picture.|
|We saw many a men. On boats. In speedos.|
|View from our balcony. No big deal...|
|And in case you thought I wasn't really there.|
