Pileated Woodpecker

 This was my visitor today.  I heard what I thought was a hammer and when I went to the window this fellow was busy working on a tree stump that was about 100 years old.  The REMC cut the tree down a few years ago.  I guess he was getting his breakfast. 

Take care and have a safe weekend

Paint Remover

 Farm report:    We got the crops in and about 60 acres of hay round baled  Now we are spraying  and of course like to see an inch of rain.   We will be patient and wait until all of you are done planting.  Hubby was making out another tag today means another calf. 
The Memorial  Day weekend coming up so stay safe.     We can watch the race from our living room this time.   How nice is that!!
Until next time

Downy Wrinkle Releaser Plus

I was ask on Face Book if I would like to try Downy Wrinkle Release.  I iron a lot I don't like wrinkled shirts and pants even the ones I wear on the farm.   I tried this product today I had a load of clothes in the dryer when this box came.    So I opened it I wasn't sure it was for me the driver did a address check and said it goes here.  These pictures tell the story how well this product works.   I will definitely continue to use this  the company sent me samples to try.  They even had the small ones  for your purse.  You may go check them out or

Before the application of the spray

After the spray it dries very fast  on the right a few damp spots

Compare the two sides  This really works  I was surprised Hope you will try  Walmart, Walgreens, and Kroger just to name a few.

The word are my own in this blog they gave me the product to try   You have your choice of Irons??

 I have been watching for the birds that pass through this area every spring.   I saw the Brown Thrasher last night but couldn't get a picture.  I was aware he or she, they both look alike,  was in the yard under the feeder eating worms, insects and sunflower seeds.
Just wanted to share my good fortune
The weather is suppose to be clear for the next week.    Please watch for all the tractors as the Farmers will be trying to play catch up. 
Until next time

Farms in the spot light

It is all about farming  How we farm and what we do on that farm.  Do you raise animals or grain. How do you take care of them and the soil.  Speaking first hand and I think I can speak for anyone that I know always put the animals first  and has concerns about the soil conditions   We are in a raining period and I would like to see it go away but we need moisture in the soil to grow a crop.  God gives us rain we will accept  rain.  We need to remember there is a plan bigger than we are so be calm trust in God and pray.

These are some of  the Farm merchandise being produced by the manufacturers.

Farm report  We are all in the same boat  doing what we can,  until next time maybe I will have a better weather report

Sharing Plants

 Starting seeds in this weather is fruitless.   Poor seed will probably rot before they germinate.  I have transplanted several  Hosta if anyone is interested in some small Hosta  plants please get a hold of me I would be happy to share.  It has been a good year for them to explode everywhere  
Farm report: Back in some of the fields with both planters running.  Will continue hauling grain when not in the field.  
Take care until next time

Moving asters to another location

This is what they will look like

How is Your Garden Growing

 Today is Mother's Day  this afternoon turned out sunny but the last few day have been cold and wet.
I started my garden about a month ago didn't think it would ever come up.   Started with 4 tomatoes but will add about 12 more but I am waiting on the temperature to rise.
Farm report no new calves this week but they have pulled out several replacement heifers.  The main herd is aging just like us!!  Hauling grain and spraying some fields but it is to wet to plant.
Take care and have a great week

Mothers Day

Pillow for her chair
 Mothers Day is this coming Sunday May 8th I know it comes every year but it just gets here faster now that I am older or maybe it is I am busier,  not sure which it is.    Just a few items for gift ideas.

Farm report:   All of this rain is not good, might have been welcome if it came in July and we were dry but we are still planting crops.  Too wet to do anything and the storms move things around so you have to clean up after it passes through.   Had another calf this morning she was waiting for the storm came.   I guess if we watched the barometric pressure we could learn something about when the  cows will calf.
Hoping for dry weather to finish planting and then to mowing hay this rain has it growing faster than normal.
Take care, until next time

Great for storage
