A new leaf
With about 3 weeks left in the calendar year (which coincidentally is our farm year as well), here are the stats:
Grain Sorghum planted:check
Green Peanuts planted:check
Dry Peanuts planted:check
Green peanuts harvested and sold:check and check
Grain Sorghum harvested and sold:check and ongoing
Soybeans harvested:half check
Dry Peanuts harvested and sold:double check
Cotton harvested and sold:half check and check
As we round out the year, I always look forward to seeing my husband again. Family dinners at a normal hour, house projects worked on, small vacations taken, date nights beoming a semi-reality...oh, how sweet it is to be a team again.
But we aren't there yet! Still plowin' up, still heading toward the light at the end of the row, still runnin' the machines, still at it.
But it's close ya'lls. Real close. And me and all these other ladies are super happy... there's this one in VA, this one in KS, this one in GA, and this one in AL... because like us, they turn the dirt too. Providing food and fiber to America and the world...safe, affordable, and abundant. That's your food supply!
Oh, the new leaf, in case anyone was wondering...is that I'm going to start trying to post more. TRYING.
