Around the Homestead

Harvest and Summer on the Farm…

 Here is Friday in the wheat field:Sunflower_01_compressed



Dad and Craig are moving to a new field.  Randy and I are stuck behind custom cutters emptying their grain cart into their semi.  So I snapped a photo while we waited.

 Yesterday evening in the field:







Sorry some of the photos are kind of blury.  Not sure if it is me or the camera.  I’m saving my pennies for a new one before we travel to Nepal (even though this one is only a year or two old and fairly expensive, I’m not bitter).

I planted so many new trees, fruit bushes, and flowers around our house this spring I am about to kill myself keeping it watered in this heat.  We have had triple digits here off and on the past two weeks.  The heat index for this week has been anywhere from 105-110 degrees. 

My evenings (after we come home from the wheat field, usually around 8:30) consist of me and my water can or a garden hose cruising around watering everything.  Randy and I can also be found replenishing the many water tanks for our animals, feeding the chickens, collecting eggs, tending to our dogs and cat, and doctoring and checking in on the sheep throughout our evenings. 

Gone are the days of killing time shopping at Abercrombie & Fitch and Victoria Secret then having lunch and a beer at California Pizza at The Summit, but this is my life.  I couldn’t be happier!

This evening will be the same as yesterday.  Randy and I will get home from work.  Do the chores that are pressing (water, eggs, etc.) and head to the field.

Hope everyone has a great Tuesday!
