Moving to the acres south of town.

Getting ready to head into our acres just south of town, we fill up the tractor with diesel fuel.

We make sure the planter is completely filled with seed also. The planter is now folded up to be able to fit down the road.

This is how many gallons we put in the tractor. You do the math on how much that costs! The tractor will hold 180 gallons total.

Instead of taking the seed wagon into town tonight, we just put extra bags of seed into the empty insecticide boxes. It’s an interesting sight going down the road!

I go in later to pick my farmer up late at night and get to see this.

Time for me to take the seed wagon back to the barn lot.

That’s our little pond in the trees.

I’m taking a shortcut through the woods.

I think it’s pretty back here.

Coming out of the woods.

On the way to the woods I pass the dairy’s pivot irrigator on our land. They spray their storm water through it onto our fields.

When I get back to the barn lot I see the mower crew is finished cutting the alfalfa.
