Combining rows

At the age of 2 1/2 weeks, today was the day to combine our twin platinum rows 1305 & 1306.  I find it advantageous to do this when they are drier than they should be to avoid compaction while rolling them together.  Not only does combining them save future labor and turning time, it will help maintain enough mass in the row to help keep the temperature up which speeds up the breakdown phase.
