I am a farm girl, married to my high school sweetheart. We grew up on farms 9 miles apart and went through 12 years of school together. I liked him in grade school, but it took until we were Juniors in high school to get him interested in me as more than a friend. I have never lived more than 10 miles from home, except in college, but have travelled as far as France, Germany and Switzerland. We live on our own farm and have raised three of our six kids. The last three are growing up fast.
Harvest is done, so on to fall tillage. Husband has been spending long hours on the Cat running the new ripper. It tills the ground and allows the stalks to break up and release their nutrients back into the soil while leaving cover to reduce erosion.(Top-Shafer's by river, Bottom-Ron's)
It's always nice to see wildlife while out working. A deer across the road from our house, a fast moving raptor and one of "our" eagles down by the river today.
