Les Miserable Farmers
We have gifted him with some measly packages of meat and eggs but really not enough money in the world some days to do this rotten farm job. It was 136 degrees when I took this shot but I braved the heat thinking Sasha might need it if he wanted to get out of anything at home later this week.
Many many thanks to Sasha and our long standing intern Aaron (in the loft stacking these bales) as well as to sons Jason and Kyle who helped earlier in the week. If all goes well and the farm sells soon Keith will only have about 1/10 the number of bales to put away for the winter next year.Oh happy day.
Our porcine herd also made it through the heat wave, but not without extra spa hours. Pigs need water and mud and more water. One of my favorite farm jobs is the hose job, until they begin to shake all that funked on manure and mud all over me. Again, I refer to the antibiotic gels...the point would be ?
