Meanwhile…Back on the Farm

19 Jun

Here’s what’s been going on on the farm. Over the past couple of months we’ve been tilling and prepping the soil…

Strip tilling the soil and applying fertilizer to create a good seed bed to give our crops a good start

We planted corn and dry beans, periodically checking the seed depth and spacing…

Planting corn, which will later be harvested to feed cattle

…and maintaining the crop through application of necessary fertilizer and weed control.

Cultivating flood ground. It removes weeds and creates a good ditch so the flood irrigation water can more easily travel down the rows.

We apply fertilizer while cultivating to help the corn grow and produce better yields

And the seeds that fell on the good soil represent honest, good-hearted people who hear God’s word, cling to it, and patiently produce a huge harvest. – Luke 8:15 (NLT)
