Farm Boy Update

It's been a long "spring" for the guys. With all the moisture that we've had, spraying the crops (for weeds, insects, fungus, etc) has taken a lot longer than it usually does, plus all the grain & canola from last year's harvest has to be hauled to the grain elevators by the end of July! So Braden and I stopped by one afternoon to see what Daddy & Papa were up to!

They were using the grain vac, which is essentially a giant vacuum cleaner, to empty out the bottom of the grain bins. My friend Natalie - the hearing aide tech - should be very proud that Braden was wearing ear phones!

Braden just had to "drive" the brand new swather! Scares us that in a brand new machine, he just instinctively knew to lift up the arm rest to find the keys! Hmmm.....

Then I had to check and see how the wheat below the farm was doing...

And lastly the little dude had to check out the inside of a grain bin and get nice and dirty!

 I hope Braden keeps up his passion for farming as he grows older! He loves just about nothing more than going to work with Daddy and Papa right now!
