Photo Friday…What is Growing?

18 Apr

Well it’s spring…full blown spring.  Which means everything around us is growing at an alarming (good kind of alarming) rate. We have had some great sunshine, mixed with some warm rain.  Here’s a pic of how the farm dog Yukon deals with a little spring rain…

Yukon ready for the Rain

I took this photo while driving to work today, spring wheat that is moving up to the sun in what seems like inches every day!

Spring Wheat and hazelnutsThe grass is moving up to knee height, and boots are now a requirement if you want to walk fields and not soak your jeans.  The headlands are full of weeds to be sprayed back before they infect our seed crop.  But as my Grandpa Carl would have said, “If weeds don’t grow…nothin’ will grow.”

And the thing that I notice the most is my growing belly…baby Frketich is only a few weeks away!


So what is off and growing around you??


Make-Over…for the blog

14 Apr

Blogs, although very much public, many times take on a personal feel to them.  The colors, the photos, they all start to tell a story of who someone is, or at least a part of who they are.  For me, I’m a pretty open book, and as most of you who actually know me in person know this to be very true on my blog and in “real life”.

So asking someone to come onto my site and help me out with any suggestions they may have to make it work better for me, or make it look nicer, was in a way a bit scary for me.  But then I saw that a blogger friend of mine, who has been writing farming blog tips for sometime, was doing farm blog reviews.  You can find her at FarmNWife.  So I thought I would give it a shot, let her in, and see what things that she sees that I don’t when I look at my page.

Here is what she came up with.  Take a look if you wish, or you can wait and see what I have in store for taking her suggestions in and doing a bit of a make over to the site (coming soon!)

Thanks so much for all your help Judi!!
