Ruth especially has an affinity for our long-eared friends. The swing set is seeing a ton of use! Paul has turned 6! It was so rainy and cold the day he was born in 2006, but this year we are planning a hotdog roast and campfire for his celebration! We have been blessed with many 70 and 80 degree days!
Jeremy and I have been stealing away in the evenings to check on the close hay fields and pastures. Without heifers, he cut the 12 acres near the house. It was a beautiful stand that was bolstered by the spring addition of Triticale, peas, and a few turnips. The other field near the house that we burned in the spring has a horrendously huge crop of Canada thistle. So we are planning to burn it down with herbicide and put soybeans out for this season. I will be sad to not have the beautiful yellow birdsfoot trefoil flowers anymore.
Jeremy mowed over 500 acres the week of May 7th. We picked up 22 acres of wheat that was struggling in the dry weather to make grain. It is being baled both as baleage and dry hay. It is beautiful and we were happy to work with the neighbor to help him get value out of it. It was difficult for him to stop and rest on Sunday. Somehow he did get a better nap than I did on Mother’s Day. But he made it up by taking me out for Mexican. This week has had a similar schedule, not as many acres, but a lot more hauling of equipment from field to field. Jeremy’s goal for the week is to get the big square baler running. Though it was sold “field ready”, we all
know that includes a big unspoked “MAYBE” with used equipment. But he is good with a wrench and I know it will be punching bales before we know it! The weather has been perfect for making beautiful dry green hay. We could use a good rainy week so Jeremy can catch up on sleep and also to ensure a second or in some cases a third cutting of hay.
