But I’m actually getting excited about this:
It’s just about time to plow and plant corn. I’m actually ready for it this year. Last year, I viewed it as something to take Colby’s attention off spoiling me. Farming takes a lot of time and I miss him when he works for very long hours.
But it is also refreshing. There is just something so cool about getting out there and working the dirt. Colby puts so much effort into the farm and it is so very rewarding to watch a new crop pop up.
And it smells good out there… It’s a mixture of dirt, moisture, and fresh air that smells amazing.
In the next two months, the wheat crop is going to shoot up. Right now, it is barely inches tall. By June, it will be over my head. Isn’t that wild?!
Don’t worry. I will be documenting the wheat’s growth. Believe me, you will be impressed.
I’m also really looking forward to getting out to the farm and watching the sunset. Sprinklers drive me absolutely crazy and always break when we have plans, but there is something so magical about watching a sunset from a sprinkler.
I might be loosing my mind, but I think I’m actually ready for the farming season. Please remind me of this when I’m whining three weeks in about missing Colby.
Are you guys half as excited about watching the wheat crop grow as I am? I promise, you will get to see LOTS of pictures here.
