Today Finds Me In a Better Mood

I've decided I love fake spring. I don't mind that it's going to get a little colder, because we've had a week of awesomeness. That's one less week of not awesomeness. I had a good game of ball with the dogs today. They like this weather, too.

Some of our seed corn arrived yesterday. I always love it when seed shows up, because that means the fun part is getting closer. 

There's more coming. And we've got that much in soybean seed at Grandpa's shop. There are lots and lots of seeds there, but really, it's just gardening on a very large scale. We get to use really big equipment too. Farming is fun. 

Piece of Farm Equipment I Think It Would Be Cool To Have:

This is a Patriot sprayer. The sprayer doesn't have to be a Patriot. A John Deere would be sweet. Anyway, a self-propelled sprayer would be nice. You can cover a lot of ground pretty quickly with these. Most sprayers like this have 90' booms. Why don't I own one, you ask? I don't have $250,000 to buy one. Yikes. It would be cool, though.

  1. For 250K that thing better have a two car garage, 2 1/2 bath, 3 bedrooms and a dishwasher. That's what I'm thinking.

    It's funny you mention farming being like large-scale gardening because I actually built a miniature tractor and twin row planter to plant my garden this year. My JD sprayer cost me $2.34. Combine: $4.35. Getting to play with miniature farm implements: priceless.
