Harvest

28 Oct

Yesterday evening, the crews showed up to harvest my beans.

I’m grateful they are getting them out because we’re supposed to have a wintery mix coming tonight.  And it doesn’t look like it’s going to get better any time soon.

This year has not been a good one for farming.

I hope next year is better.

The Last Cutting

16 Oct

Sunday, my nephew came out and mowed the buffer strip and water ways.

This will be the last round of making hay for this year.

You can see, the beans are still out there.  They are getting ready to be harvested, but we’re having as hard a time getting weather to harvest as we had for planting.

Sadly, they are not likely to sell at a price to make a profit.  It is not a good year for farming.

Feeling Like Summer

15 Sep

We’ve been really hot this last week.  The llamas didn’t like it.

It’s been rainy and humid.  You can almost see the humidity in the air.

The goats have been melting in pasture.

This weekend we’ve been cooler, but it’s still rainy.  (That means I’m having a trouble getting pictures for the blog.)

And on Monday, we’re going to get really hot again.

The beans might be starting to turn, but it doesn’t feel like fall yet.
