Farm Spring in pictures.

Well its been awhile since I have posted much about the farm, so a quick update! All the corn is planted and growing. Soybeans are all in the ground, some a second time and after this most recent downpour we may have to replant some again ;( Hay season is in full swing as we are already half finished with the first cutting!

I am getting back in the mood of taking more pictures, take a look!
