I’m very behind on posting, so we will just start with Today’s farm activities and I’ll fill in some past stuff later.
Today was a good day. James and Nate came to rake and bale the hay. I did not have my hopes very high because in past years our hay yield was pitiful. We did however seed the former corn field fairly thickly, sow clover in the front field, and put down manure. Still… I did not have my hopes very high. So, I was thrilled with the results.
Here are the nice looking rows of hay in the big field
And the front field
And the nice results in the big field.
Good results in the front field as well. Eight rolls (not all pictured). We only got two on the last cutting.
Overall I’m thrilled with the yield. Twenty four rolls! Thank the Lord for multiplication.
Tonight was also calf processing night. A neighbor friend came down to help me band and de-horn a couple of calves. Here is a photo of part of the process.
Janet had a couple of the neighbor boys in the audience with her.
Gotta hold em some how…
That is all for now. I’ll up on more of the farm “goings on” in later posts.
