judging team does great at the State Fair. Layton is 11th out
of 200. Marit loves the fair life--rides, Agriland, fair food!!
Tanner drove to the Kansas City Airport to pick up the triticale
seed and bring it back to Manhattan, Kansas home of K-state.
Cole prepares for tests. Vance is in the field plowing ground.
Ed, a retiree, helps Vance by driving the other tractor.
Monday, Dr. Shroyer from KSU brings out the triticale seed,
which we repackage and send on to 4 crop scientists. Customers
are now coming to pick up their seed wheat. Louise is trying
to make deposits, pay bills, balance the checkbook, and renew
the farm operating loan at the bank, which we do every six months.
Seed wheat calls come in fast and furious. We are out of some
varieties. In the meantime the garden and flowers need water
so Louise moves the hose around a lot. Still enjoying tomatoes
and okra. Need a rain. Wheat drilling is near as some farmers
have started. We will start Sunday. In the meantime the football
team won. Layton and Marit had a 4-H meeting and soon their
record books are due. Cole came home and spent the weekend mowing!
