harvest is getting closer! The color of the wheat is changing
day by day - it's really turning from green to gold. June
20th is the date I use as my target date. Other than ball
games and 4-H, we don't plan anything for the end of June
or first of July.
It's hard to believe that it's nearly the middle of June
as the weather has been cool. Unfortunately, the rains have
been missing us so we're really starting to get dusty and
dry. At least one pasture is really low on pond water. At
the same time, it's been so cool and damp, it's been hard
to get the alfalfa put up. We're still working on baling
the first cutting. Dean still has some milo left to plant.
He says that we'll be ready for it to rain really good by
the middle of the week.
With ball games, make up games for the nights it rained
in town, and ball practices, we're at the ball park almost
every night. We did have our 4-H club tour Sunday afternoon.
All the families met and traveled to the different farms
to look at the 4-H animals. One highlight was a 3 1/2 hour-old
baby goat! Pigs, sheep, horses, bucket calves, chickens,
a 4-H market steer, rabbits, and kittens - we really saw
it all! The tour ended with a picnic in the park and the
kids playing on the merry-go-round and the jungle gym.
