This sack contains 42,000 sweet corn seeds, at a cost of $402. Which on one hand seems really, really expensive, but on the other hand about 9/10ths of a cent per ear of corn. Around here sweet corn varies in price depending on the point in the season. It usually gets down to around 10 ears for a dollar in the high season, but I've seen it for $0.50/ear. At 10 cents an ear, and figuring on some loss, this is about $3500 retail value of corn, and about 2 acres worth.
level after 15 hours of pumping
The manure pumping continues, day 2. Click on the pictures for a bigger view. It takes 8-10 hours of pumping to lower the water level 6-8". I'm figuring they've got another 30 hours of pumping at this rate.
