The Farmer’s New Toy

 

IMG_1435

Tims Farms has a recent addition.  We purchased a McFarlane Harrow last week and it has been a real time saver.  These are pictures of the Farmer trying it out.

Work, Work, Work!

It has finally gotten dry around here and we have been able to get a lot of work done.  We have been running the field cultivator, disk and the do-all preparing the ground for planting.

Don has been doing double duty some days and runs both the planter and the spray rig.  A couple of days he has pulled 14 hour days trying to get the corn in before it rains.

The Farmer’s Wife  has been doing her part by hauling fuel, bringing lunch and dinner and helping move fields so the Farmer can stay on the tractor.  The kids swap out riding with Don.  They love farming and don’t mind getting extra school work done so they can get up very early to go with their daddy.

Saturday Poppa helped out and Grady rode with him until supper.

We should get finished planting the corn by lunch today and Don’s plans are to run the water furrows and spray it all before it rains tonight.  The forecast is calling for 2 inches of rain…so those furrows will come in handy!

The wheat looks great and has had it’s second dose of fertilize.  Days are getting longer and it’s getting warmer, so it will really take off growing now.

The house building is off to a slow start, but we are hoping things will speed up soon.  Don’s uncle Bobby has all the dirt hauled in and the county ran the lines and put in the water meters yesterday.  We are just waiting on the rest of the foundation work to be completed, things should start going faster after this is finished.

Field Work and Firemen

IMG_0915

We went to the field yesterday and carried lunch to daddy.  While he was eating the kids took this opportunity to climb all over the equipment and run through the fresh cultivated ground.

After eating Don carried Eli on a tractor ride.  Since Clara was taking a nap, we decided we would clean up around the shop and burn some fence rows.  We first explored and found a mouse nest and watched some birds.  Then we picked up around the shop.

The boys found some old fire extinguishers and they had a big time pretending they were firemen.  Daddy’s red truck was their fire truck.

We took a moment to take just one more photo before going to check if another field was dry enough to work.  I just love these rusty old grain bins.  We must come back to take more pictures!

Back to work Daddy, We Love You!
