Ok, they're beginning to become habit forming, these Sunday afternoon strolls. I don't know how long they'll last, though...because it's getting pretty hot out there!
Yesterday afternoon, after a late lunch, Jim and I headed out for a walk around the golf course across the road. There's a paved trail the whole way around it...2.3 miles from our front door, around the golf course and back. I won't tell you how far we made it...but I will say that we turned back part way around and headed for the shade.
Ben, the Amish farmer to the left of the trail has "dragged" this alfalfa field, in preparation for first cutting hay. He rode his horse through the field, pulling a heavy metal bar behind, to lay the alfalfa over a bit, so that his sickle bar mower will cut it more easily. You can't see it from the picture, but you can trust me...we could tell it was done!
This old oak tree just off the path is huge! We wonder how old it is?
This farmer must have baled some rye on Saturday...
See that row of marshmallows along the driveway?
Oh...it' our farm!
Yes...the rye was baled on Saturday afternoon, and the corn planter is parked in the field ready to go first thing Monday morning...
The planter got started this morning, and will hopefully be able to keep going without any headaches.
After he's finished, it can rain! It's really dry right now, and we could use a good soaker!
