• Pictures from around the farm…

    Posted on July 11, 2013 by in Farm, farm photos

    The weather has made for an exciting July on the farm.  After 16 days of rain we were finally able to enjoy a full day of sunshine today, a sure cause for celebration!!!  We were able to get a half day of harvesting wheat earlier this week, but the excess rain has delayed us from finishing harvest at this point and we are forced to watch the quality degrade until the weather cooperates.

    With a little sunshine the flood waters will soon recede and we will be able to resume field activities.  This is much needed as the wheat is ready to be harvested, weeds are taking over the bean fields, 2nd cutting hay is ready to be cut and straw to be baled.

    My Aunt Beth is in town this month and has been taking pictures like crazy, I convinced her to send a few over to share them on the blog, enjoy!

    Deer, deer, how many deer can you find? Scroll over the image to find out how many deer are in the wheat field

    Storm damage - July 10So much rain on July 10th that it washed out the culvert and gate. Good thing we found the damage before the cows did.

    Don't drive through high water! Unfortunately there was no way around it!

    Curious steers weathered the storm just fine.

    Quality of the wheat is starting to degrade. Hopefully the weather will cooperate for the harvest soon.

    Any low areas in the fields are flooded. This field of soybeans has turned into an excellent playground for carp to swim!
