Last night we mixed up 150# of Apple flavored minerals. Buddy got a used Harbor Freight Cement Mixer for nothing (We had to get a belt) But that was sure the shit for mixing it all up in No-Time! Had it mixed, bottled and loaded in the truck in less than an hour. Gonna be slingin' it out this weekend.
I'm about to mix up some Grape Ape flavored minerals using dad's mixer he recently bought. Handy ass tool to have around for just this job!

I also stopped at Merit Seed yesterday and had another good talk with John Wengard. Very knowledge guy and I've always found his help to be accurate. I picked up my fall mix (Deer Max) for 2 of my plots and the Frontage Clover Blend to frost seed in 2 of my other plots. If all goes well, I'll run out this afternoon and get the frost seeding down.

I took some white clover and frost seeded the sugar beet plots outback. First time doing this and looking forward to seeing the results. Surprisingly, the herd behind the house didn't take to the beets as I had hoped.

Fixed the feeder in my backyard last night. Spinner-plate did not want to turn. I tore it all apart and sprayed shaft and inside of motor with penetrating oil. Then chucked-up the shaft into the cordless drill. Ran it in high for about 30 seconds to loosen it all back up. Works like new again! Cheap fix too!
