15 piglets born yesterday - our first litter since early spring! Been pretty busy summer. Have been taking old corn and stocks from neighboring farmers' fields for the livestock. Picking eggplant and zuccinni. Orka should be coming in soon. Our sweet corn looks great and should be a bumper crop. Start picking next week. Peanuts look good too.

A couple days ago someone called an asked if we wanted a trailor of manure-of course there is only one answer to that question! Here is number Nick unloading the trailer onto the pick up truck, to be spread between the rows of sorghum.

Nick hasn't done much farm work this past year as he has been working for Darlington County as an EMT, taking practically every shift available. Next week he heads off to Wyoming Catholic, but he got his fix of manure shoveling this week!

Connor is heading off to the College of St. Mary Magdalen in a few more weeks.

Things will be changing quite a bit around here!

Oremus pro invicem!
