Time to Garden

This was our first week as owners of Berries and Ivy County Store we have a face book page stop by and like our page and say HI our Open house is June 28 thru July 5 closed July 4                             Farm report:    Got a lots of hay up over the last couple of weeks.  Still having a few calves.    Corn is looking good the cold weather sort of cause some yellowing but it is off and running.  I thought the wheat look like it was trying to turn  but it is getting close to the 4th time to combine wheat and bale straw.  Beautiful weather we are having  enjoy it the next few days.   Take care and stay safe


I replanted the spots that didn't come up  We had a hard rain after I planted these

I have eyed these 2 tubs thought about taking them to the store but I would had to get the guys to move them.     So I told them to move them to my garden  and put some dirt in so I can plant my potatoes. And of course they laughed at me.  One red and one white potatoes  there is a drain hole at one end

Summertime--Ice Cream

 It has been a while since I have blogged but I really am very busy trying to get our new store filled with new merchandise just for our customers.
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
