The Life of a Farmer!

Brian Jelly, our neighbour who does most of our farming for us shared a thought with us a couple of years ago.  He said when he started farming: “I didn’t get a decent nights sleep all summer until the crop was off the field and in the bin.”  It’s a thought that is coming up a lot this year.   Most people had a hard and late winter this past season and we were no exception.  Spring was late and our summer has been cold and rainy.  These two photos were taken a few days into August, the first today, the second in 2012.   The good news, we have Sunflowers, the bad news, they are very late and not as abundant.  We are anticipating them to be in bloom towards the end of the month and we’ll keep posting photos as it progresses.
