Our tractors are still going around and around. We are all tired and a bit over it. With the exception of two days over Easter, it has now been 7 weeks of non stop work. The Farmer is leaving the house at 5.30am and not returning until anywhere between 8 and 11pm. (This includes the weekends.) To be honest I think we have all managed pretty well, but are feeling very weary now.
The good news is The Farmer thinks we may have all our crop in by the end of the week. Yay and big huge double yay.
One of our seeding rigs was parked up this morning getting serviced. Thank heaven the dust is no longer an issue.

Farmgirl and I went to visit one of my friends this afternoon to help her feed two baby calves that she is caring for. They are very cute but require quite a bit of attention in the first week or so.

We don't have cattle on our farm, we do run sheep but most of our business revolves around cropping. Farmgirl thought the calves were pretty special.
Given that I am planning a beef casserole recipe for tomorrow's post I might stop waxing lyrical about the cuteness of calves... There is no escaping the reality of where meat comes from on The Farm.
Last week I wrote a post containing advice for would be farmer's wives. Whilst the post was mainly funny it obviously struck a chord with lots of people. Thank you for your kind comments and particularly for the emails I received from various readers. Life in the country can be very hard at times and I loved the fact that so many people got some comfort from my funny little post... Thank you again.
