Farm Picture Friday #25

I love this picture!

It says so many things to me.

It says: “We are in the time of harvest; the air is crisp, the days are shorter and the crops are ready.”

It says: “The beauty of the sunset is coming and that it will be a gorgeous one.”  (And it was!)

It says:  “Even in the time of work, having family with you is a joy and a blessing.”

It says: “Even at rest, farm equipment is powerful and awesome machines”.

It says: “Farming is a way of life, not a profession.”

What does this picture say to you?

Blessings to you,

Laurie – Country Link

Farm Picture Friday #24

To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: A time to be born, and a time to die; at time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted.

-Ecclesiastes 3:1-2

Blessings to you and the ranchers of South Dakota,

FPF #23

Harvest for 2013 has begun here at Country Link.  What does harvest mean for us?

Family time

Combine, tractors and trucks running

Long days and sometimes long nights

Meals eaten in the backs of trucks and mom’s car while sitting in the field

Ice tea served in glass jars

Finding soybeans and corn in the washing machine

Dirty faces

Combine rides

Three generations working together

Weigh wagons and moisture meters

Lots of pictures

Flagging for equipment going down the road

Happiness and disappointment

And some days harvest means naps for the littlest of helpers

What does harvest and fall mean for you?

Blessings to you,

Laurie – Country Link
