Monday, June 27th- Thursday, June 30th

Everyday this week was pretty much the same. I would wake up and then for the rest of the day I would either run wheat, bale straw, plant beans, work on tearing down the barn, or just working on little stuff around the farm. This week has been very busy and it just seems a little crazy sometimes. Everybody wants to make sure they have everything planted, bailed, and harvested soon and at the right time, so its just a busy time of the year.

Good news is that the crops are growing pretty well for being planted so late because the recent rain that weve had gives the plants a lot of moisture and its definitely hot enough for them to grow good. Another good thing is that we are making good progress on tearing down the barn. To conclude each day, I help my kids with all of their 4-H animals. Fair is getting really close, and all the animals are doing well.
