The fruit trees have done really well this year. Earlier I got lots of
cherries, then a big crop of plums. Now it's time for pears and apples.
First I'm going to tackle the pears. Lots of great pears are way up
high -- of course!
These pears will make tasty eating!
The ladder couldn't get up under these branches, so I had to
climb up to get to the apples. I'll be making a lot of applesauce
I think I've done enough fruit picking for now. It's time to
supervise my minions. "Get to work, minions!"
The minions seem to be working well, so I can sneak in a little siesta.
I have a lot of property to take care of. Some of it is set up
for pasture, and some isn't. I'm taking a few minutes to look over
a choice location for a new pasture (and prime grazing).
Now, I need to get the tractor out to mow this area down so I can get
it ready to be a good pasture next year. I'll head to the barn to get out
that old tractor...
Uh-oh. There seems to be a bit of a problem here!
I think I've got it...
Off we go!
One of the best times on the farm is relaxing on the porch after
a hard day's work. Cool breezes, a great view, cold water from the
well... ahh... a cow's life!
