The County Fair is very small and judging went good. I over heard the 4-H Advisor say that the static entries were similar to last year. There are about 4 kids that bring 90% of the projects. Visual Arts, Home Environment, Photography, Gardening and Foods made up most of the entries. We do interview judging while evaluating the projects. It’s nice to visit with the kids and learn about their projects.
J and I didn’t make it into town for any of the weekend fair activities.
Friday morning J did his weekly cattle check and we hauled hay in the afternoon. We hauled off of a field I stacked on Tuesday. While J loaded and unloaded I finished my book. I also drive the semi between stacks and move the tractor to new stacks. It saves the Rancher a few steps.
Saturday we hauled more hay. This time we moved to fields that weren’t gathered, so I made stacks while J unloaded at the hay coral. In the afternoon, J kept pecking away at hay and I cleaned the house and car.
Sunday we awoke to rain; by mid morning we had .65″. More rain came in the afternoon. When it was all said and done .80″ was our grand total. It’s just what the prairie and crops needed. The farmer’s harvesting winter wheat might not be quite as excited as we are.
Monday we took a drive to check yearlings and look at J’s corn. Odd jobs and a parts run rounded out the day.
Here are some cell phone picts of my bucket planter project.
I hope you have a wonderful week and I’ll be back with a post after my trip.
