Hello everyone, the corn planting is all done on our farm such a relief. Now we will be on to planting the beans. I'm thinking it is time to start my garden. We are scaling way back on the garden this year. I'm going to have tomatoes, beans, zucchini, lettuce, onions and corn. My husband planted the corn as I was telling you in my last post with the corn planter. He planted two rows out in the big field with the field corn. So therefore the kids are going to have corn to sell this year.

My hubby has another two weeks off work and I'm loving it. Saturday we went to a big farm auction
for the day. We were able to get a grain truck we have been needing. I also got a chicken brooder, a water er and some tub feeders. So it was worth going.

Sunday we attended church and in the afternoon my aunts came to visit. It was such a nice quiet day
of peace and rest.

Today I'm taking the oldest son to get his truck legal so he has his own way to get around. I'm very excited about this!

We have about 6 ducks and 1 bantam chicken sitting on eggs so lots of babies soon.

Have a great day and God bless. Rebekah


  1. Congratulations on getting the corn planted! How many acres do you plant?

    It sounds like the farm auction was lots of fun with some good stuff.

    Have a great day!

  2. Congratulations! Sounds like a lot of work is done for this season!

  3. We planted 60 acres of corn. So not a whole lot. But enough to feed our animals for the year.

  4. 60 acres of corn sounds like a lot to me! But, I'm from the hills where there just aren't any big corn fields. :D That's pretty cool that you raise the food for your animals.


I would love to hear from my readers so please feel free to leave me a comment. Rebekah
