Our third week went pretty smooth. We started out the week with a beautiful sunrise shower followed by a rainbow. We didn’t get much rain; less than a 1/2″ in most places.
Our local soil conservation district planted 4 rows of trees along some of our property for a new shelter belt. They planted lilacs, box elders, quaking aspen, and juniper trees. We’re hoping they got off to a good start!
Farmer Brown was able to plant soybeans in a field near our yard.
What a beautiful night! The sky was so colorful.
Brett decided one day that we had to make chocolate chip cookies for everyone! First he had to let everyone know he was making cookies today. He loves to bake and be a chef!
Our favorite tree, a beautiful flowering crab was in full bloom this week! The smell was overwhelming!
Our wheat has emerged from the soil this week. It is so great to see the black dirt turn green!
Farmer Brown and Brett filling the drill with soybeans. Brett loves helping on the farm and being where the action is. He was helping dad keep the beans leveled out in the compartment.
Our crazy dog, Chevy did something we had not seen before. Mick was trying to figure out what was laying in our yard. He figured the dogs had buried a dead animal, but discovered it was a dog toy when he got close.
Our week was filled with planting and fragrant trees! We are over half done planting and busy preparing to head south for custom harvesting wheat.
