Life on a family dairy farm
in the wilds of
Upstate New York
Bobolinks? I gotta look that one up.
Sorghum? gotta look that one up.Great pictures. Your bottom collage is suitable for framing.
Looking at those pictures of Allan . . . I turned to Keith and commented that he wouldn't be the man he is today had he not farmed in his youth.Big machines with great responsibility for getting the land prepared, planted and harvested.Lively hoods depending on it.Big. Very big.(As is that sorghum! Didn't know it got THAT big!)
Dani, a member of the blackbird family, common here in the summer nesting season and fall small grain harvest. Really pretty and interesting birds.Jan, a small grain a lot like corn only about a sixth the cost to plant and harvest. We used to grow corn, but can't afford to any more thanks to the ethanol market. Thanks for your kind words on the pics. Alan texted me to come up in the field and take pics of him chopping. It was a gorgeous day so I did.Cathy, You are so right. My brothers both grew up working for farmers, although we don't come from a farming family. They are both amazing capable men. And Alan does what is needed whatever it is. As to the sorghum, it gets even bigger. Up on the hill it was over the top of the cab of our biggest tractor. You are supposed to harvest it when it is short, but this godawful weather has prevented that. Still is preventing harvest dagnabit.
tractor sinks better than the titanic!!
Ahahahahhaaa :)I just saw Alan's comment.Got his mom's sense of humor.
