They REJECTED our PEAS! Mold? Moisture? Not fun...

We had our hopes up that our building of peas could be cleaned out and equipment stored inside but that all ended when two trucks from entirely different storage on our farm were rejected. It is not great to spend hours prepping trucks, filling them, and then turn around and dump them back in the same spot they came from. But it isn't the end of the world as hanging onto the peas longer could mean better prices in the future.

  • That sucks when everything goes against you at one time. It's cool to see the never give up attitude. I grew up helping a little on my uncle's farm and always enjoyed it. Some of me wishes I would have went into farming. I love watching you guys and the Millinial Farmer. Keep the good attitude up and great videos coming. Oh, one more question...Do you guys all live on the same, compound you might say, or live in different locations?

  • Thank you for sharing! here is a tip for the best penetrating fluid I discovered and very low price. Use SYNTHETIC, not regular power steering fluid, and mix 50/50 with acetone. I found this works better than anything I have tried. I believe it will work for you.. Further if you have a rusted bolt and cannot use a flame, try an induction heater coil, they come in different sizes. .

  • I remember this radio interview I listened to while driving to a cattle sale (Salebarn) in the 70s, there were about three of us in the car, two were cattle buyers and I was the auctioneer. The reason we were interested was this Farmer had won $40,000 in a lottery, big news back then as we were suffering from a terrible cattle slump, cattle prices were at rock bottom, fat steers were worth at best $25. To win $40,000 was like wining a million dollars back in the 70s. The question to the Farmer by the interviewer was what will you do with the $40,000, without hesitation he responded " Keep on farming until its all gone". I know now how true that statement was, the only way I have found to make money raising cattle / farming is when you sell the farm.

  • I feel for your problems but . . . it is nice to know that you are on a pretty much level playing field when it comes to dealing with the everyday breakdowns that farming presents. That said, you had a pretty crappy time of it for a while and handled it like a pro (all while holding a camera). Thanks for sharing.

  • We had a ford county super six on a log splitter once with a good engine and it started blowing oil up the exhaust pipe ,but our new Holland dealer said it was because the weather was cold and the engine was nt working hard .so when I finished ,I put a loaded trailer on and went for a drive up some of our Dorset hills .After a couple of miles it was running clean again and no oil up the exhaust.After that I always covered the radiator when on light duties and had no more problems.

Then, you said it was 13 Fahrenheit, and I chuckled on the the inside. God bless;whatever gods you believe in.

  • I know you were suffering from the bad news. But please consider what this video did to me. When you had the first load of peas rejected, I got very depressed - so I took one of my wife's pills for depression. Then when the tractor threatened to run away, I was overtaken with anxiety - so I took one of my sister-in-law's anxiety pills. But when things got worse, I was sitting on the edge of my chair and my back started hurting bad - so I took a pain pill. I tried to eat something, but the problem with climbing the ladder in the cold without gloves gave me indigestion, so I took a purple pill. My doctor said that having a strong drink after this video, with all those pills in me, just about ended my happy days forever. So, you think you had problems, eh? 🥴😲😫

  • Reminds me of the good old days hauling spuds around the Tri Cities area of Washington State. Back into the shed, fill the trailer, bust out to the processor, repeat. Once thing I noticed, was Nick crawling on top of the load to tarp and I wondered if you ever thought of rigging ropes on it so you could pull it from ground level? That's what we did on our tubs that didn't have the electric ones.
