Here are pictures from this weekend of Collie on the Hurricane Ditcher.
Harvest has been over for a couple of weeks.
We were lucky to have nice weather for most of harvest. A change from the rest of the season! Now Collie and Gary are doing lots of farm maintenance, with the excavator, bulldozer, and this Hurricane Ditcher shown above!
The barn west of our house. I love taking pictures of this barn for some reason!
Much to my excitement, I received a new camera for Christmas. . . so now I just need to learn how to use it properly! The above picture was taken on Christmas Day through the kitchen window at Nancy and Gary's house. The Cardinals looked like little Christmas ornaments.
This was taken Christmas Night from our back door. The wind and snow were blowing so hard. I'm not sure I have ever experienced anything quite like it!
And this was taken this winter. . .we had freezing fog. Something else I don't remember ever experiencing. It looked like everything was dipped in snow. It was actually very pretty.
The Anhydrous is being applied as I type. . . and is probably just about finished. On to planting time!
Nancy and I planted Cantaloupe in the greenhouse today. It was such a beautiful day!
The Burgess Family hopes to share our day to day operations of our family farm here on our blog! Our main ventures are corn, soybeans, a little wheat, and a very large garden! From planting, growing, harvesting, and all of the exciting things in between! We hope you enjoy your visit to our farm!!
