Green Bean Harvest 2017

21 Jul

We don’t grow a lot of acres of green beans, but even one acre produces a ton…or a number of tons!  This field was harvested this week and will produce around 500,000 bags of green beans for grocery stores!  That’s a lot of food!! 

Even Hoot and Auggie couldn’t make too big of a dent in our yield with those kind of numbers. Which doesn’t mean they didn’t try….these boys LOVE green beans!

So keep eating those veggies and we will keep on growing them!  

Summertime as Farm Boys 

14 Jul

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. 

Auggie basically runs the crew hence the radio…aka “Boss Man”. 

He really keeps us on task. 

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! 

Farm Boys

19 May

Seeing my boys grow up on the same farm I did, reminds me daily of what a great childhood I had! It’s hard to imagine any other way of life for my family! 

Here are a few farm boy photos for you all to enjoy on this beautiful Friday!
