He was a hungry little finch the birds below just kept wanting to eat and he would run them off and as you can see in the pictures he continued eating.
The Great Indiana State Fair is over I think it had good attendances the weather was great. If you didn't make it, there is always next year.
We have gotten more rain so now maybe we could use some drying time for our corn before harvest starts.
Just wanted to stop by saw this little bird so added him to my post.
Take care and enjoy the rest of your summer.

|This is one flower that is seem all over the fairgrounds but who doesn't like sunflowers.|
Farm report trying to get another cutting of hay in and hauling grain to get ready for harvest. We did get a 1.96 inches of rain the other day just in time, the beans were starting to roll not something you want to see. The rain will also help keep the pastures green.
Until we talk again have fun and be kind to each other. Take a day and go to The Great Indiana State Fair

I got to help raise the flag and that is a first for me The First Lady Karen Pence fired off the cannon woo too loud for me. Then we raised the flag.
I have several small gourds in the FFA Country Store and they have lots more to look at Jellies, Soaps, Salsa, soup mixes I believe I saw ice cream come on by and help them make some money
All for tonight take care and be kind to each other.

|This goes in the barn to be used inside.|
We are cutting and baling more hay for this winter. All the crops are looking good so far but until the fat lady sings or the combine rolls you never know.
The weather is great for all the county fairs that are going on around Indiana go and enjoy; help support 4-H
Until we talk again, be kind to each other.

This straw will be used for bedding in our barns. We have a small feed lot for our own calves and they need a dry place to lay in rainy seasons or snow in the winter. The straw is unloaded into the barns for later use
Thank God for all the weather either good or bad the rain has been plentiful so far this year and I acknowledge those who have had some wind damage maybe you will still have a crop to sell.
We are celebrating the 4th of July with family gatherings either work or play, time spent together.
Take care and be nice to each other

These beans were planted before it dropped down to 39 one night and I thought for sure they would be hit by the frost but they did well and it won't be long and we will be eating fresh green beans.

These pictures are of the Ozark Fisheries operation. Farm Bureau members toured one of the fish farms and we had our ice cream social and resolutions meeting
These pictures tell a story and I will write under some of them. Ozark has been raising gold fish since the early 1900 They have a lot of experience doing just that. Joe the grandson of the Farmer who started this operation was our tour guide. They sell millions of fish and they were in all sizes.
|These are interesting as this is what the female lays her eggs in and then they are put in containers that are temperature controlled and the oxygen checked every 3 hours. At least we don't check the cows that often|
