Soybeans being harvested

Football game doesn’t stop farm work. A dry windy day has my farm renters working hard today.

This short video was taken from my front yard. When they were working here before it was at night, so no video from that day.

Until next time, that’s all there is from Sunnybook Farm.

Goodbye old friend

Internation Tractors were Bob’s favorite workhorses on the farm.

Today, the last of the IH tractors left the farm.

Somehow, I know Bob was watching.

Country road traffic

Usually my road is quiet, but not during harvest.

Remember to be careful and patient when passing farm machinery.

Hope everyone stays safe.

Fall work on the farm

The wagons are heading to the field to fill up on chopped corn.

Eventually, this chopped corn goes to the farm where it is mounded up and covered. It will turn into silage and feed livestock all winter long.

Until next time, that’s all there is from Sunnybook Farm.

A dusty job

Things can be too wet or too dusty on the farm for spring work. It doesn’t take much thought to figure out what kind of weather has been here this month.

I finished mowing before the machinery got close to my backyard. For a while, it was a race to see if I would finish before the dust cloud swooped over me. I just made it!

The area will be looking for rain soon. Too bad precipitation isn’t forecast to come in the near future.

Until next time, that’s all there is from Sunnybook Farm.
