Excerpts from life on a small dairy farm...
Haha that is cute. They must have been putting down lots of manure. My husband used to work at a Carrot plant and the water they used to rinse the carrots went down into a sump. They would have to dredge the sumps every so often. I imagine the spreading of the manure would smell the same way. Not what you want your laundry to smell like. :)
lol ... just had this conversation with a transplant this morning. She asked if one ever gets used to it ... I said the natural manure, yea, you get used to that but the liquid manure, NO WAY ... never get used to that one!
I agree!! And I should know by now not to hang out laundry, but it was already hung out when he started spreading! :)
Hey, that stuff is liquid gold!
for that reason I do not hang out wash, there is nothing else that comes close to that smell.
I like the team of mules used to pull the tank. Are your neighbors Amish? I was so impressed by the beautiful and well cared for animals owned by the farmers I saw in Amish country. Manure spreading smell---not so much.
Thanks for getting back to me. I love the greenness, the rolling hills and handsome farms of your part of the world.
Thanks Leenie...next time you head east, look us up!!
I was always told that manure was the smell of money :)Know what you mean about picking days for line drying. Around here it is the smell of smoke...uggg. Have put a clothes rack up in the spare bedroom for drying clothes. I really dislike using my dryer in the warm weather. You know me and how I like to see clothes drying on a line :)Love the picture!
Oh all I can say is YUCK :) B
Oops, usually it is nice to snuggle into sheets hung out on the line. I may get grass clippings in ours, but that is about the worst of it. Hope they got a second washing :-)
Great picture, love that they are using a team of mules! :)Not so good for drying clothes on the line though. Blech!
Oh dear...Well, that's what comes with living in the country I suppose :)Around here... it's Thursdays that you want to be careful hanging the wash; as that's the day that the turkey plant processes.Burning feathers...nice....NOT!We're pretty lucky that we don't smell it every week, just once in a while when the wind blows just right.I love, love, love that wagon and team. How great!!Drat about you selling your dehydrator! No lie... dried pears~~ they are better than chocolate!!Catch ya later...Kerin
Oh, I can certainly smell that fresh country air! :-)
I like the picture of your farm! despite the stinky manure..haha! that is a beautiful shot!
I enjoy hearing what you have to say! Thanks for your comments!
