Rain has come our way, and we couldn’t be more thankful!
In the past week we’ve had over 2 inches, which means we should get a decent 3rd cutting of hay and have a good corn crop as well.
When your animal’s winter feed depends on the weather it can be nerve-wracking, but this season should end happily for us.
I know some of those throughout other parts of the Midwest (Southern Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa to name a few) are not so lucky. I’m sad for those that have drought-stricken crops, and I pray that between crop insurance, disaster assistance, and God’s grace, things will work out okay.
While JR and I were looking at the dark green of the corn after a rain shower we thought some pictures would be in order. Try as I might, I was just not photogenic.
The terrible outcome of the first few photos left me laughing almost to tears, so then we got this gem.
I finally decided it would be better to take a photo without my face. Apparently that works best…
Yes, the corn is tall enough that I could easily get lost in the field if I’m not careful!
With that, I’m off to work on farm chores. I hope to be done early enough to catch some of the Olympic opening ceremony. I especially like the track & field events, but there’s something awe-inspiring about all the Olympians. It’s such a rich history and tradition that I can’t help but be intrigued.
Will you be watching tonight? Anyone specific you’re cheering for during these games?
