2014 Wheat Harvest in Full Swing!


Wheat thrashing is underway.  We have some of it burnt and planted back already and one farm left to thrash.  It’s busy bees around here right now!  The kids are loving it, but the farmer’s wife is tired of hauling them to the field repeated times a day to “take turns” riding!







I Smell Smoke! More Burning Wheat Fields








 Revelation 20:13-15

And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.




It is a fearful thing to be in the hands of an Almighty God!  I have peace knowing Jesus Christ has saved me from my sin…and to the uttermost!  Do you have that assurance?  Find Jesus, before it is too late!




Burning Wheat Fields












May Farm Update


The wheat is beautiful this time of year, especially in the breeze!  It is beginning to loose its green color in it’s heads, the stalks are still very green however.  We expect to be thrashing in about a month.


The above picture is bearded wheat, its what most people think of when they think of wheat.  Below is non-bearded wheat, I think the bearded is the prettiest!


Below is a picture of a water furrow in the wheat.


I know as a farmers wife I am not supposed to like thistles.  Don and I have this talk all the time!  I just can’t help to think of how beautiful they are this time of year,  not in the field or the yard…of course!!!


The corn is really growing in all this wet weather, most of it is 1 foot tall or taller.





We are in the process of planting the beans, in between rains, that is! 


Planter tracks.


As far as the house building goes…we have the foundation and plumming completed!!!!  It has been delayed due to weather as well, but we are not complaining.  As long as it is finished before the baby gets here, I am a happy woman! 




April Update

The wheat is looking beautiful!  It has got it’s deep green color and is beginning to joint.  (The joint is where the head of the wheat will form)  It didn’t take many long warm days for it to really take off growing.


The corn is all up to a good stand and we are in the process of wrapping up fertilizing it.  Its beginning to look more like the corn belt  here in the boot-heel.  Everywhere you look there is another corn field.  It will be beautiful this summer!


We have had a very wet spring so far.  We are still planning on planting rice, but only if we can get it in sometime next week.  We don’t want to loose our window for good yields.  Today Don is spraying and fertilizing because the ground that needs working, is still too wet.  They are calling for rain tonight and tomorrow, however, things are drying up pretty fast now that we have longer warmer days.


Old Man River never ceases to amaze!  One year its banks are so full levees have to be blown up to relieve pressure, one year it is nearly dry and they have stopped barge traffic, this year, well I guess, is more normal.  The river usually comes up this time of year, and boy has it!  Prime fishing and trot lining in the shoots await!  Too bad we have to work!!!


This is Bunge where we haul most of our crop.  It sits just inside the levee.  You can see the farmland surrounding it is covered by the rising Mississippi River.


This is the arm that loads the crop into barges.


When the water really gets up, this road is covered with water.  The workers have parked their cars on the levee and rode a boat to work on occasion!


Verse of the Day
“And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.” — 1 John 5:14-15 Listen to chapter Public Domain. Powered by
