Corn Silage

The last 6 rows

the last plants chopped

the last dump

getting late the sky is turning pink

Supper "in the field"
last night we did the plastic, the bags and 2 rounds of tires

this morning we finished putting the tires on

and Marc is driving truck again today
His schedule of late is: school, driving truck and sleep...repeat...

Corn Harvest

Rien is moving haylage

and corn silage from the next silo

to make room for the new crop
and this way it has time to ferment before we have to use it

Greg and Marc working beside one another

easy taking pictures when you are this close

Kyle on the harvester

but if you do have time to drive around there are still some beauties

Blood Moon

We sat outside waiting for the eclipse

first it's just a bite out of the moon

the closer to full eclipse the more red or as they call it
a blood moon

Bruce Trail west and east of Walter's Falls

starting Eat of Walter's Falls, when it was still a bit chilly

but it warmed up fast

end of Beaver Valley start of Sydenham section


even dry leaves can look pretty

Antea's Waterfall

very cold water, quite refreshing
so nice that the mosquitoes are done
West of Walter's Falls we hiked 4 1/2 km road
road is not as much fun and hurt our knees and we get blisters easier
so we try to mix it in with the "good" parts

Mapleton Organic

we went with the Ag-women group to Mapleton Organic

the cows are real up close

Arla the herd manager

just like us they have a voluntary milking system

they have a barn where there are pigs, calves, and chickens

and some turkeys
it's not a petting zoo but to teach about farming
This teaches crop rotation


besides ice-cream they have yoghurt

saw some coffee-Break friends

bought some specialty ice cream
dandelion, pumpkin and chai
we ate the dandelion already yummy!!

Picking Stones

We started before breakfast

might as well work on our memory verses

we have each 3 recipe cards double sided

Found a horse shoe

and a vice grip

and lot, lots, lots of stones
