I have been very busy here with our kids and their activities and getting ready for the big craft show this Saturday. We have not been in the field since one week ago when it started to rain. We only had about 100 acres of wheat left to combine but we just couldn't get it done before the rain. When it dries and the sun comes out we will be able to finish the wheat and move on to flax, corn and finally sunflowers.
