Real Farm Work

10 May

When I got home yesterday, I was pleased to see there was activity in my field!  They were field cultivating to try and make the field a bit smoother.

Some of those wonderful people who work on planting and harvesting aren’t getting any younger, and they don’t like the bumps, so we are trying to smooth it out some.  Hopefully, we won’t have to do this again.

It was the perfect weather for working in the fields!

Can you see what’s behind the fence?

Yep, they came and planted my corn later in the evening.

I love that Norm plants using no-till and contour farming.

This is to help prevent erosion.

Look at those curves in the field.  There’s no straight lines here.

He plants with the curves and hills to make provide more stability for the land.

My field goes all the way to the fence and the two big trees.

I’m so thankful to have my field planted.
