Besides being with family the food is the best part of Christmas day. For the Cattle and Hog farmers we had booth for our Christmas dinner. with a few side dishes and four different desserts. I am glad the weather is mild and it isn't snowing for the ones who drive to see family.

|Male Hairy Woodpecker|
Our little dogs are doing fine had them neutered last week, they will run through the house at 30 miles an hour just better get out of the way.
The cows are on their winter pasture and the heifers are on the west side pasture outside my kitchen window. Great view never get tired of watching them.
Sounds like we may have a white Christmas nice to see flurries sometime that day.
Merry Christmas and take care and be nice to others.

For our store I am sure we will have lower energy use. We had large plate glass windows and you could feel the cold in the winter and heat in the summer. It will be beautiful to see the finished buildings. I hope you will come to town and see the change.
Take care Merry Christmas if I don't get back on before next week

Farming is coming along got the beans in and now to finish the corn. Mike is hoping we will have room for the rest of the corn. Weaned a few more calves by the sign of the moon love it when they ask me. What is the next weaning date? I really like the farmers almanac you can use it to loose weight, cut hair, kill weeds, plant and harvest. Get yourself one for next year good reading also.
Going to sign off take care and be nice to each other.

As the farmers go through the fields the view is great but he is busy watching other pictures that come over the screens in the combine. Everything is so technical It tells you a lot of what your field is producting . We all know as time goes by it will not get easier but there will be more to learn.
We are having our Christmas Open House at the shop on the West side of the Martinsville Square on Nov 1, 2014 Refreshments and gifts It will be a winter wonderland
That is all for now take care and watch out for the Farmers

I thought I would touch base with my readers. I know it has been a while I didn't plan on spending so much time in the Berries and Ivy store. But if you want to succeed at a business you need to put the effort into it.
Farming is coming along the guys try to get some corn shelled everyday. We have had some break downs. But also we had a grain dryer fire one morning and we have had some mishaps that contribute back to the fire. We are waiting on parts for the grain leg. We can only use one grain leg so it restricts what we can do and how we move grain around. The cows are good no problems one thing I have to say we haven't run out of pastures for all of them. That is a good thing. Below is a picture of 2 of my special guys. The little one has left this earth a couple of months ago so I have been looking for a rescue to replace his cute little being.
Take care and be careful and watch for slow moving vehicles

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 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
