I definitely understand and there's no need to apologize. The crops come first! Speaking for myself, I love reading about your life on the farm and will always be back! (:

My Dad farms too. He's been racing to get the hay out of the field and safely into the barn... then the new crop into the grown before snow flies. Ahhh, the life of a farmer! I LOVE it! (: Vicki

I know harvest can be stressful and super busy, but I just love it! It gives me much satisfaction to see the finished product of so much work.

In my corner of the world I am thinking about Thanksgiving dinner. I agreed to make mashed potatoes for 30+ guest at my mil's. That is a lot of potatoes... what was I thinking!

Hope things settle down for you soon.

You do have a very long harvest...I pray that you find great bounty this year. Dianntha

Sharon said...

Glad to hear that you are getting the crops in.
When you have time to blog I will be here waiting to read it.
I am going to try and get things made to take for Thanksgiving dinner.
My DIL wants to have it this year, so I said go for it.
Have a safe rest of the harvest season.

Farmgirl Cyn said...

Totally understand. Why, I just dug up the last few of my potatoes a few days ago! And the farmer next door just harvested his soybeans.
You will enter into your rest soon enough!

We are gearing up for a busy season in our lives. In the course of the next four months, we will celebrate our wedding anniversary, all four birthdays, and Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year's Day, and Valentine's Day. It's wild, but it's fun!

Looking forward to your pics and your yummy recipes!

No need to apologize, you silly. That is your life. That is what makes you our friend. All of your life every little thing. ((Hugs))

Glad you are getting your harvesting in. I just had to drop by and tell you. I made your Cube Steak for my crew here in Arkansas while visiting and what a hit. My 3 yr old grandbaby ate 1 1/2 on kaiser rolls and talked about how good they were. So thank you for sharing your recipes with us! Can't wait for more pictures and of course those great recipes! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving! ...nel
