Coming home.
A sandstone marker at the edge of
the driveway. We do not remember
where the coffee pot came from but
the stone seemed like a good
home. The pot has strange
aerodynamics. A strong wind will
blow off the top but not upset the
coffee pot.
An old abandoned chicken coop
with a view of a few cows across
the bottom.
Baling on a hillside. One bale
managed to hang onto the hillside.
Most bales need to be released at
the top or bottom of the hill.
Stopped while baling the hillside.
The baler is a Krone open chamber
type and makes a 5' diameter by 4'
wide bale.
The time saver, a 10 wheel vee rake.
Sold an 8 wheel this year and
purchased the 10 wheel. This 10
wheel is more top heavy and care
must be used on a hillside with
wheels up.
This turkey showed up within 100
feet of the house. First and last time
we have had any turkeys on our
A fall morning with frost, fog and
light creating a nice effect.
During the summer, the cows rest
in these woods and cannot be
seen. With the leaves off, the sun
can be seen rising.
Temporary bale storage on top of a
Planted birdhouse gourds in the
garden for fun.
We do get snow in the winter, a
fairly heavy snow shown here.
A winter and
summer view of
the same tree. It is
a Shingle Oak.
Pear trees in bloom in the spring.
High winds of the last several years
have about ruined these trees.
Hay storage near the feeding area.
We have tried several ways to cover
bales. The large stack was tarped
and tied, then bales pressed
against the side of the stack to
further hold the tarp. Bale sleeves
are too labor intensive.
