In between rainstorms and hissing wind

The second cutting of the second alfalfa field

Is stacked and heading to other homes

It can rain all it wants to now. And the rain will be greatly appreciated.

Your friend on a western Colorado farm,


Look Quick Before the Weeds Appear

I’ve finally got my yard weeded. What a job!  In between working with Terry on the farm, it’s taken me until 9:30 last night to finally get everything weeded.

It didn’t help that we cut down that tree and I had to do something there

Or the fact I was given a HUGE, DOUBLE HUGE pile of old railroad ties, that I needed to figure out what to do with

Which first had to have all sorts of hardware, nails and wire removed (they were an old corral before I got them)

And I felt like I just HAD to use them….they were really cool

Then I needed to find some more cross-arms.  Everything took time. The weeds ran away from me.  But finally I did  it !

Weed Free!  For a short while anyway!

Now I need to reseed the lawn, in places, and get the weeds out of the hedge.  But for today, I’m just going to enjoy having this big job done until I have to start again on Monday.

You know weeds just don’t stay away, they will be back.

Happy Father’s Day to all you Dads out there!
