July 18-24

Piglets that are approximately 1 month old out on pasture. They're starting to eat solid food now.

The gardens are about a week behind this year, normally we'd just start picking summer squash about now.

We should have green beans in about a week.

Putting a new deck on a set of new holland running gear, the original deck wasn't made out of treated lumber and rotted away. We'll use this wagon for hauling round bales.

July 11-17

The cold, wet spring made weed control in the field corn difficult this year.

Hilling potatoes

A loader makes moving manure easy.

The spring wheat is doing well this year, its been a marginal corn year so far but a good year for wheat.

July 4-11

We have tomatoes, peppers, and peas planted in the greenhouse.

While cutting hay today I lost a tooth on the haybine.

It looks like the bolts snapped off, I couldn't find the tooth anywhere so I'll have to get another one.

The potatoes are up and growing.
