He was thinking of plowing this field up this fall, but has decided not to. He does plan to plow the other old field at the end of the village, and plant it in corn next spring.
More photos taken on Tuesday. Corn silage will be done sometime Wednesday. Then they will do some work on the tractor before starting the sorghum. Tuesday morning they put the giant part I brought back from Canada on the chopper before starting for the day.

Monday they hired a tractor and wagon to help haul, and they started chopping directly into the (3) wagons as seen in the photo at the bottom of the page. The first day he claimed to use 60 liters of diesel fuel, while the other two tractors used 20 and 14. I wonder how many he asked to be paid for yesterday (I asked if they really had him back again, and Garry said yes.)
