Summertime for many families means family time, vacations, summer camps and camping. For our family it means field time, harvest time, tractor time, field meals and lots of dust and dirt. All of which, our boys, Hoot and Auggie don’t know how to live without! Here’s just a small glimpse of what summer time looks like in the life of farm boys.
Hoot is usually busy harvesting behind our big machines, he just shakes his head and tells us our combines are leaving a lot behind. They both take a break from the hard work for some dinner out of the back of the pick-up. We call these field meals.
And then off to look at all our other crops to make sure they are growing well! With so many crops on our farm while we are harvesting one the others are still growing!
Auggie usually tries to rest up when he can… this farming business can be a bit exhausting! He caught a quick nap while on the swing the other day.
Then the day is over and these boys of harvest wash off the dust and get up to do it all again tomorrow.I wish I looked this cute farming, I wish I could farm without shoes on, and although Hoot promises me no pants farming ” is fine mama!” I think I’ll leave that to him for now! Harvest 2017 is in full swing and these future farmers are having a ball out in the fields! Come out and say hi….you can find these farm boys out in the fields covered in dust until September!
