Finally Seed in the ground

Checking if we may be able to plant
the field for new seeding was dry enough 

this spot is wet enough but most of the field was okay
this is a soybean field

It's a go

Matt arrives

1 bin soybeans, the other grass alfalfa mix 

first fix the GPS

the machine shows what kind of season it has been
lots of mudding around

first seeds are planted

it's quite the train

after the new seeding, the soybeans were planted

2 out of 4 crops planted
the Spring Wheat and Corn still have to go in
and it's raining again today

Nature is late
These are blossoms from one of our apple trees

we're also late with spreading manure

but the pit is empty now

feels good, next up; planting

Syrian lunch

making a rose from a tomato 


These big beans tasted very good


It was fun and delicious

Baklava as dessert
it used to be the dessert for the king
