Farmer’s Occupation- Different Depending on the Day

corn farmer school

Last week Milton visited a couple pre-school classes to talk about his occupation. I’ll be honest, I was disappointed I wasn’t able to go and join the fun!  From what I heard he did a great job and I am super proud of my farmer for doing this!  It was way out of his comfort zone!  🙂  I put together a short powerpoint for him to use.  He talked about each type of crop and shared a few of the actual grains we have on farm right now.

This week he has been working in the farmyard and shed preparing things for planting season.

The planting season began yesterday for him.  Corn is the first crop we plant and then soybeans. The corn crop will be harvested in September if all goes well!  While I am here typing this post, he is sitting in the tractor continuing to plant in straight rows, no GPS on this farm!

Although he is quite busy, he did crawl out of the tractor to take me on a date to celebrate our 14th wedding anniversary.  I recall when we got engaged and we were discussing wedding dates he told me May- September was basically off limits. That October was busy too.   So April 12th it was.  Sometimes we get to celebrate on the actual date, sometimes not.  But going without celebrating isn’t an option.  Farming is important but our relationship is essential for tomorrow’s happiness.  So many things have happened in 14 years in our life together.  It will be interesting to see what the years to come bring!

Now that the farming operation is getting more active again after a silent winter I hope to blog more. What would you like to hear about from the farm?  What things do you enjoy or interested in learning about?

Feel free to comment here or on our , Facebook, Instagram, or Pinterest  pages!  Oh, and don’t forget to share any of those!

Thanks for stopping by!
