the winter wheat is off


Monday at noon the combine appeared

first it had some minor trouble

but soon it worked

the weather stayed good

straw was made into bales

and loaded

the combine went to the farm 
where it slowed down considerably 
so much more straw there, 
and some wheat was hanging down

keep driving straw to the William's farm

put as many in as possible
even from the side

now waiting for 3 dry days in a row to start 
the straw at the farm

Computer problems


Ron says: before you bring it in 
take a picture of the back 
so you know where to put the wires again

The cows are happy with fresh feed

6 calves on bottle milk, that's quite a bit
the older calves go on the milk feeder

not to many cows on the calving list now

Kale chips


what to do with all this kale

we only have 3 plants
but they produce lots

I made kale chips
easy and tasty
but it only used 2 or 3 leaves

Limehouse to Scotsdale Farm


a nice hike with lots of shade

narrow paths

quite pretty

some fields

don't worrie, there is still lots of milkweed around

we had lots of boardwalks

and a new path beside the highway 
instead of walking on highway 7

a beautiful day

lots of mosquito bites though

Soil your Undies

60 days ago something was berried here

going to dig it up

kind of hard to find in between the beans

something is here

the first one is found

3 pair of underwear were berried 60 days ago
if the soil is healthy not much should be left

next one is a no-till bean field

and barely anything left in the corn no-till

from left to right
no-till for 12 years - corn
no-till for 8 years - beans
tilled field - beans

we were most surprised how healthy the 
field is that was tilled

Going Home

we chose not to go over Barrie
that was a good plan, we missed the tornado there

instead we went over Stayner
had a late lunch at Devil's Glenn

Arrowhead 3

 A rainy afternoon

we set up the table and chairs inside

usually we're just outside

but this was a lot of rain

It stopped

so we had supper outside

and after scooping all the water out of the firepit
we had a campfire
