Farm Picture Friday #14

changing fields

We are again planting corn!  Or should I say still?  Which ever one it is, I am just glad that the tractor and planter were running today and that they still are.  Yes, at 10:35 p.m. as I type this the planter is still putting seed in the ground.  We are still wet, but because of the time slipping away, the pressure is on to get as much done as possible.  Which means long days.  From dawn to mid-night long days.

Gpa was planting at his brother’s today and most of the evening.  Here he is changing fields.  This gravel road divides the farm into two parts, north and south.  The south was completed and he was moving to the north.  Last year this farm was planted to beans, so this year it will all be corn.

A little over a year ago a tornado touched down at the edge of the south field.  It also took out a house up the road.  Thankfully no one was hurt, but there are still reminders of that storm.  This was just a little one, nothing like what occurred earlier this week in Oklahoma, but as I was at the field today and saw the mangled trees and again picked up sticks out of the field, I could not help but think of those who lost loved ones this week do to tornadoes.  Please know that our hearts go out to you and that you are in our prayers.

Blessings to you and the victims of the recent tornadoes,

Laurie – Country Link

    We’ve only been able to be in the fields for about 1 week total out of this planting season! It’s been so wet & won’t stop raining. There’s a chance of rain everyday for the next week. We we’re going to plant all corn but if the weather keeps up we’ll have to switch to beans because it’ll be too late for the corn. I’m from Iowa just so you know! I recently started a blog if you’d like to follow along with it: http://injohndeeregreen.wordpress.com/. Good thing you guys are able to be in the fields!

    • Work is being done again today! Those to the north and east of us got rain this morning, but we only got a sprinkle. Hope you get in the field soon! Thanks for stopping by!
