Belgianspeltz

July 15, 2016

Yesterday, we spent the day thrashing speltz with my Amish buddy and his family. It is an annual event, that for me, never gets old. I have a great time. The work is hot, dirty, dusty, and wonderful all at the same time. Water tastes awesome as it cools and wets a dry throat, believe me, we drank gallons yesterday!

Today, we are back at work here on the farm. The recent teaser rains we got, have made the clover and corn grow a little bit. I’m sure some second cutting hay is in our near future. Our speltz are almost ready. We will combine in a day or two. Its not as much fun as thrashing, but it’s quicker.

The horses and I will skid some firewood today. It will be a good day to be in the cool shade of the woods. It’s hard to believe that summer is half over. The fields could use some water. The pastures are holding out for now, but a cool refreshing drink would do wonders. It’s just like the hot job of yesterday….water refreshes all….just one reason why I protect it every way that I can.
