Last week I made a blog post about Farming in February <— thank you spell check, I never get that one right.
What does rest on a farm look like? For Oklahoma it means taking cattle hay everyday. Checking on cattle everyday. Checking the progress of wheat or rolling in a tractor laying down fertilizer. Sometimes he cuts wood (then makes me and the girls pick it up. ) Usually this lets him clear areas for fence its a twofer.
Does the farmer take days off. Rarely. When we were dating he and his family would take every Sunday off, but its been so long since that happened. He does something everyday. Sometimes its barn work, sometimes its honey do’s, or father do’s (see fertilizer above).
Sometimes a fellow farmer friend says I’m going to Mexico in xyz months and the farmer says make that happen. So when I’m typing this we were packing and preparing for vacation with out the kids. As you read this we have just gotten back. Nobody needs to know when we are gone. lol
Paranoia comes with farming in the country and meth head neighbors.
