Final day for crop reports


Monday, July 15, 2013

DH was kept busy finishing the last reports for the crop insurance
season. They are all due today. He did have to drive to get the last
2 done but it gave him a chance to look at the fields farther from
home and see how all his farmers are faring. Plus he had to take
pictures for a new account. The trip was worth the drive.
I covered most of the bases in the office but there will be a few
things to do tomorrow. Just a typical Monday.
DS and I spent some time giving the milking nannies their
annual pedicures. If we don't trim the hooves, they start to
hobble and walk crooked. It went very well and they were
happy to be able to walk a little better when we were done.
DD and GD came down just as we were finishing chores and
took a walk in the garden. We pulled a few carrots, dug just
a few potatoes and picked kale leaves. We had some for supper,
just steamed with a little butter. This was the first time we planted
any in the garden and we will be sure to do it again.
We are both getting comfortable, watching the news and weather
and getting ready for bed. DS has to work at the store at 5:30
tomorrow to help unload the grocery truck. So I will be making
sure he gets up on time. I'll be up at that time anyway.
Have a great Tuesday and thanks for stopping by. HUGS!

    Pedicures for the nannies. What else goes on in the life of a farmer that I never realized!
Hope you had a good night's rest and a great Tuesday.

    Glad the nannies don't have to walk lop-sided anymore!! After all, they aren't mountain goats, right??? hehe You are a good goat mama! Taking such good care of them!
Nice to have a garden walk with your youngin's!
Never been brave enough to try Kale or any of the "greens" such as "mustard", "turnip" or the like. I know I should be brave & give them a try! My favs are spinach and the lettuces.
Just couldn't get up early enough to beat the heat & get anything done outside today, & I know rain is coming in tomorrow! Going to shift it into high gear this evening, but I'll still sweat buckets even if I'm not boiling under the hot sun. (It's registering 95F out there right now! UGH!)
Hope you are having a pleasant day, my friend!! ((HUGS))

    Are the farmers having a successful season so far?

I met someone a few weeks back who trims cow's hooves for a living. I never gave this much thought before; what a physically demanding job! While goats might not weigh as much as cows, I'm sure it's still an adventure to get the trimming done!!

Enjoy your Tuesday!!
