Wow! What a day! The weather is a beautiful 72ºF (22C), and the sky is bright blue, with puffy clouds. We say it looks like “Andy’s room in the Toy Story movies”. It is just so very comfortable for a July day. The humidity is gone and a gentle breeze is blowing. I guess you could say it doesn’t get any better than this! It’s quite a contrast to yesterday… when I went outside yesterday morning to retrieve the newspaper, my glasses fogged up from the humidity!
It’s nice to have such a day for Pat and me to celebrate our 36th anniversary. It was a similar weather day 36 years ago, which was a Friday. But that Friday evening became quite warm and sticky when the guests packed into our little non-air-conditioned church building in Wheatland, Indiana. It was hot in there for the ceremony. Really, it doesn’t seem that long ago. Today we celebrate the years together, and look forward to what the future may bring.
Random work is occurring at the farm today.
Soon, Brandon and Haley will get the ‘glamorous’ task of cleaning the old pit. It’s a 2x/year task that no one really enjoys, but still it has to be done.
Check out a new YouTube post about last Saturday night’s rain, 1/2 inch (13mm).
Tomorrow, we’ll return to the roadside mowing with the 7130 and bush hog. We must also get the JD S680 combine in the shop and remove some internal grates and filler plates from the concave. Those are inserted for wheat harvest, but need to be removed for soybean and corn harvest.
Fall harvest is only about 6 weeks away…I saw Twitter photos today of corn harvesting in Texas that is already underway…
