Harvest is DONE for 2011

Well, unless someone wants some custom work done.  We finished up double crop beans just after 4 PM October 31.
 There was enough volunteer wheat it smelled like cut green wheat.
 The question now is do we fertilize the volunteer wheat or dig it up?  Anyplace the beans were thin (most of the field) we had a pretty good stand of wheat!
 Yes, we'll dig it up.  We thought about spraying it and no-tilling it next Spring, but it is rough enough we need a little leveling.
 Our goal has always been finish harvest by Oct 31, plowing by the start of deer season. Double crop beans have tended to interfere with that plan. But we got all the beans in and the combine in the shed.
