And It Goes On and On and On —- Thursday, December 17, 2020

We are working daily (still)

Three loads of wood a day

Back and forth

Cut, load, stack, cut load, stack

The Pile is Shrinking

It’s starting to look different (this is before)

This is now.  We are more than 1/2 way done

Slow and steady, slow and steady

Your friend on a western Colorado farm,


Busy, Busy, Busy

Sorry for not posting for awhile, but I have been busy, busy, busy.  Both at home and at work. 

Over the weekend we headed to the plateau to cut firewood…winter is coming on so we need to get a huge pile of wood for heat.

A fire wood cutting permit only costs around $20 for a cord of wood.  BUT you are required to purchase 2 permits at once.

You are only allowed to cut dead standing trees—which helps clear out the potential of fuel for a forest fire.

So we took a truck, Evan came and filled his truck, and Misty and her family brought thier truck.  Between all of us we were able to get our permits full.

We have several deer that live on our farm and love to eat with the cows and snack on the corn.  They are NOT appreciated when they start snacking on the corn!  This big fellow seems to be the head of the herd and you can tell he has lived here a long, long time.

Third and last cutting of hay is done for the year,

and the pinto bean harvest has begun.  

The only irrigation now is to water up the hay ground so it winters over well.

We should be able to harvest the corn some time in October. 

Gosh this growing season has gone fast!
