Putting the Farm to Bed —- Sunday, November 14, 2021

While Terry worked on servicing the combine

I took myself out to the farm and started picking up all the siphon tubes

Covering the culverts so no little animal could winter over then drown come Spring

And gathering the orange dams to haul into the barn

Gradually, I made it

The weather was fine and dry, the air cool; still I worked up a sweat.

Gradually, I got to last (and largest) of the alfalfa field when Terry arrived and helped me wrap everything up.

Harvest is nearing.

So exciting!
