The Last 48 Hours

Consisted of:
Getting some seed in the ground!


The wheat getting sprayed with fungicide.

A quick trip to my Dad and brothers to watch them set tomato plants for Red Gold!

Working a lot of ground!

Cleaning the Cheetos out of my truck that have been there since the cattle show a couple of weeks ago!

A lot of spraying burn down!

Riding in every tractor that was moving!

Setting up our new Baseline!

Actually getting my picture taken!

Cleaning fence rows and fixing fence to turn cows out, back to back softball games, a 2nd grade field trip, gymnastics practice, a flat tire on a tractor, getting said tire fixed, feeding kids at 9pm putting kids to bed and going back out to get Chris at the field, letting My Cowgirl drive her Dad's manual transmission truck without having a heart attack, picked up the rest of my flowers for landscaping and tonight finally parking my truck at 8:30 to come in and start supper!

And it's just the beginning!

  3. I'm right there with you girlfriend, minus the softball games! Tall Guy came n around 8:00 and said, "I'll hep you freeze that asparagus!" Seriously? We finished around 10:00. Woo for a Friday night on the farm! ;-)

    Rumor has it that even I can plant with the base lines set and all. Don't know whether to be flattered or smack somebody!

    Raining here today; it's that counter-clockwise rain on the radar! Illinois seems to be getting the worst of it, but we are only 10 miles from the state line! Keep on Trucking or Planting down there!

  8. Thank you for coming by today, Wow what a nice life. I love your farming. The big tractors are just great.
    Thank you for your comment about my great-grandmother. The thing I was thinking about today was she was content in who she was and I wish I was more like that.
    I liked that picture too.
    Kim,
