Clear Skies and 4th Cutting!

Monday, September 21st, 2020

The wind blew out the smoke!  It is wonderful to breathe fresh air and see the clear blue sky again!

4th cutting is in the stack fully tarped and already sold for delivery to the coast!

It is always a good feeling to get the last cutting of the year finished.  Now we clean and service all of our equipment so it can be put to bed until next spring.

Smokey Windy Day!

Monday, September 7th, 2020

It’s a smokey windy day today.  The smoke is getting thicker as the wind picks up.  Steady winds of 29-34 with gusts to 49 this afternoon.  We didn’t rake 4th cutting yesterday because of the wind forecast.  It should stay safely on the ground.  Fingers crossed!

4th cutting!

Friday, September 4th, 2020

Yesterday we began 4th cutting.  The summer has flown by!

It’s been a busy week for the grandsons.  Farm work never ends!  Earlier in the week they had to help repair a wheel line in the goat pasture.  All 3 boys had to take a turn hammering the clamp!

Hunter had a very busy day on the farm yesterday.  The twins were busy so couldn’t “go farming.”

He started the day by reading the Fastline magazine which is filled with farm and construction equipment for sale.  Like any farmer worth his salt he found a few things he’d like to buy!

Next he helped his Uncle change the discbine blades so the grass in the fields would cut easily and cleanly.

After lunch he rode with Grandpa in the discbine cutting hay.

A farmer’s work is never done!
