Harvest Season

Today is a big day.
Finally, after a solid week of rain, we have sunshine! Yaay! This means it’s time to bust out the combine and kick it in to high gear.

We have 250 acres of soybeans to get off while the weather is good. So buh bye hubby!
A wise woman once told me to build a little cabin in the woods and move there during harvest time because you’re husband will be unbearable for those few weeks. Well, I’ll say I think she was on to something 🙂
Alas I have no cabin, so moving is not an option. Instead I’ll do my best to keep the house clean and his belly full and pray that everything goes off without a hitch.
On top of the stresses of harvesting, it’s also time to deworm our chickens! This entails catching every one (there’s about 50 of them) and giving them a dose of ivermectin. All by myself.
It’s a dirty job but it must be done. I’ve yet to find a method that works better, and although I promote naturally raised animals, the consequences of worms can be devastating and sometimes compromises must be made in the name of health. Wish me luck!
