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!

Dog buried toy in dirtOur 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.

Catch The Moment Week #17

I’ve gotten behind on Catch the Moment 365 but have done fairly well at taking a picture everyday.   I only missed 1 day this week.  We are getting back in the swing of things.  Our crew is all here and there is LOTS to be done.  Here are my pics for the week.


Our pink sunrise.


The dogs were hunting for a mole and only came up with a salamander.  You can still see the snow in the trees.


Today’s farm view – hauling and drying wheat.


It’s still pretty brown in the area.  Our winter wheat hasn’t turned green yet.


Our sunset.


The ducks and geese were enjoying their day in the water.
