Wheat Update

IMG_0700

The wheat is growing and really greening up since it has been fertilized.  We also have most of it sprayed.  We were looking forward to saving a little money by using our new highboy to fertilize our wheat, but it just wouldn’t stop raining!  We hired an airplane to do it instead.  We got a lot of our wheat sprayed, but some was still to wet, so we will be calling the crop duster, again!

All the kids had to take a ride in the “new to us”  highboy on it’s first run Friday.

We also had a picnic in the field with daddy and took a moment for a few pictures in the wheat.

Saturday was more spraying, and disking.  It finally got dry enough to to do a little field work, and last night we got another down pour.  Fortunately, with these longer, warmer, windier days, things dry up a little faster.  But until then, shop work…there is always shop work!

This is my favourite picture!

 

 

Snow in the Bootheel

We received a lovely Christmas night snow!  We don’t get snow too often here so the kids were excited.  We were without power for several hours.  After huddling around our wall heater in the kitchen for a while we decided to drive around.  We were thankful to get a good snow on our wheat.  It seems to make best when we get  a few snows on it.  The worked ground always works up better in the spring too!

Wheat Crop Planted

We have all our wheat crop (2013) planted and it is up and looking good.  I believe this is the first year, since we have been married anyway, that we have planted all that we had plans to.  We have a total of 400 acres this year.  This year we broadcast our wheat instead of drilling it which saved a lot of time.

Verse of the Day
