Wind and getting windier. We had to make a run to Kansas yesterday to pick up a piece of equipment we need to plow here in a couple weeks. We’ll be getting a team of eight or so antique tractors together with one-ways to plow a couple of fields together and get them ready to plant wheat. It is such a great day to gather as neighbors, work the land, share a meal and tell stories of old! We try to hold these kind of neighbor events a couple times a year to celebrate what farming was and to hear the stories of those who lived them and to just have an old-fashioned social time. This is a shot of the farm from a couple evenings ago when everything was glowing and spring was almost ready to bloom. Now, the pear and plum trees have bloomed, the wild plum bushes are in bloom and the chokecherries are ready to burst forth and provide the fruit that lands in my jelly jars onto my toast in the morning–such rich purple-red goodness!
