From the garden to the plate

The tomatoes look pretty in the morning sun

we even picked our first slicing bean

and ate carrots from our own garden

Small Bales

We cleaned up the pasture

Rien was on the wagon

first 1/2 load hay with little manure
second 1/2 load had much more manure in it

I dislike driving on an angle
so I was on the wagon for the first 15 bales on the hill

It's warm

A good place to hang out

The windmill is often standing still for a while

no wind and warm

Army Worms in the Wheat

The crop-scout from the Coop is looking

these are the most damaging, they are young 

turts from the worms

an adult who's almost done living
they won't do much damage anymore

Second Cut Haylage

Plastic on the walls


making a good looking pile

off and on the trucks roll in

Marc backs up to give room

William driving truck

done here, off to the next farm

the hottest job, putting on tires

between the walls on one side
no wind, that wasn't easy

Second cut Hay

The baler came so late, on Thursday evening
 the hay was getting damp so we didn't get very far

Friday the baler was down, so we called another
custom worker, glad he could come

and then his tractor broke down,
but only for 1/2 hour

going again

decent amount of bales

dry in the bale, thankful!
