Lucky to be a Farmer & a Mom

9 May

I’m feeling pretty lucky today. I took a few photos while I was out fertilizing our wheat.  

    
I quickly realized how lucky I am to have this be my view many days of the year! 

And I also scrolled on this photo taken on Mother’s Day, another reason I’m feeling lucky today! 

 

Walking the Newly Planted Wheat Fields

8 Mar

Good morning!  Here is another edition of Photo Friday…

Yesterday was a beautiful day!  So I set out to check on our newly planted wheat fields and see how they were coming along.  At this point, when they are newly planted slugs are their worst enemy!  We not only plant with bait next to the seed, we also at times have to spread on top of the ground to help keep the population of hungry wheat seed eating machines to a minimum.
