Farm Aid

Our milk prices have not improved much . I had written a letter to Farm Aid about the problems we are facing. I recieved an email from Joel at Farm Aid . He said they have had so many farmers email and call about how they are also having a terrible time trying to pay their bills. Last week I got another email . Farm Aid wanted dairy farmers to write to the Sec. of Agriculture and tell him what they are going through . So I wrote a letter . You were to send it to Farm Aid and they would forward the letters .

If you go to , my letter is printed there . Farm Aid printed my letter on their blogspot.

Cows out in the Pasture

The cows are finally out in the pasture. The first time we put them out, they usually go through some fences. Especially the younger cows. But this year we were lucky ~~ Not one cow went through the fence ! Once they get to the pasture the first time , they run all over the field . Just like they were little kids.

My hubbie has been busy in the fields. At least he was and than the corn planter broke down for a couple of days . We had to order the parts and that took awhile. But now it is fixed and he is busy again.

We have a garden plowed and ready to get planted. Our one daughter is going to plant some veggies . And the other night we planted a couple of rows of potatoes. Our grandaughter and grandson helped to plant them and cover them up . I had told them how years ago when their Mommy and Aunt were little we used to plant about 5 long rows of potatoes. It was nice to have all those potatoes . Now we will have some again.
