Good luck with the riding mower, but the goats would be much more fun. Thanks for reading! Kevin, You got it, these guys really are slick. They have chicks certain times of year here. Always only straight run though. I think they would sell more if they would sex them. Not a lot of folks kill their own chickens any more and thus noone wants a bunch of roosters running around. Have you seen shipping on birds since 911, it's gone sky high. I've been going to get some fish for the pond here, but it just hasn't been high enough on my list of things to do to actually happen. Oh well maybe soon. Thanks for reading! Mai, Glad you enjoy. Please keep coming back. Thanks for reading! Betty, It's sad that more men don't get a chance to raise their children. The courts are biased against men. I've been through torment in the courts here. I can only say that I have an understanding ex-wife who wants me to be a part of my children's lives. I would encourage every father to join an organization that promotes father's rights. I hope that the farm can continue to be successful and a good influence on the children. Most of all I hope they can learn important lessons about life, develop good work ethic, and most of all be happy here on the farm. Thanks for reading and please check back! Bigboy, I haven't quit. I've just been terribly busy both at work and here on the farm. Finally got all the hay done and now having to work overtime at Kingsford. On a good note though, we got all the hay up without any rain on it and Kingsford had record sales for the month of May, so both fronts are doing good. Thanks for reading and keep checking back!

I haven\\\'t the time to read through the whole thing in one sitting,but plan to do so a little at a time. I don\\\'t know how you manage with 3 kids,farming, and working another job.We rarely hear of a man raising his children. You are doing a wonderful job with raising your children out on farm. May God continue to bless your home and your children. wow You have a wonderful blog! I haven\\\’t the time to read through the whole thing in one sitting,but plan to do so a little at a time.

This blog has its own distinct freshness and charm. I, being a frustrated former truck farmer, come here for nourishment of the spirit. And memories of better days, when the body was more cooperative. Thank you. Mai, the Sick Sikh of Seattle\'s South Sound I don\’t remember if I have ever commented here, but I visit your farm often.

I remember back when you could walk into any feed store, implement dealer or other business and they would just about give you any number of hats, T-shirts, calendars, thermometers, pens and coffee cups you would want, then it dawned on them, "why are we giving this stuff away, I bet people would pay for it!" And like lemmings to the cliff,we do, just jumping at the chance to pay for something that once was a freebie. Well, that is the thing about being a contract grower, you are always on the other man's schedule. You know how that goes at Kingsford, now you'll be doing it on the farm. I hope the excavating company can give you a reasonable explaination, and better yet, get onto the job ASAP! I know I get aggravated with the guys I've hired in the past who spend two hours discussing how to do a twenty minute job. I went over to a town about twenty miles from me to look for a seat for my tractor. The one here has some, but not the type I wanted. They still had chicks, ducks and turkeys in the store. The lady at the front told me that it was the last shipment she was going to get. "Thank God!" (her comment on the situation.) Some of them were getting big enough they were starting to feather out. The prices she had on them was probably why she hadn't sold some of them, I can go down to a hatchery not thirty miles away and buy the same birds for a third of the price. The farm store here was having "fish day", today. You could order fish, up until Wednesday, and they would deliver whatever you wanted to stock your pond. This time the main fish they were offering were the channel catfish and minnows. In the fall it will be bass and walleye. Well, I need to get busy and get back to mowing. I'll put on the new seat whenever I get the chance, but the grass has got to be cut first. Kevin Joel, Family & Friends,

You go girls! They are smart! A John Deere ad on shirts isn't Mahindra but heck better than Botox or Viagra ads. LOL. You've been busy and deserve great praise. Ohoh with the little bulls. All my friends suggest goats to help me keep up with the weeds but I think a riding mower a much better idea. Going to pick one up at the beginning of June. Keep up the good work....it gives me a chuckle. Woohoo! You go girls! They are smart! A John Deere ad on shirts isn’t Mahindra but heck better than Botox or Viagra ads. LOL.
