Did you know corn prices are low? One day this week was rainy (FINALLY!), which happened to be the same day as a big equipment sale; so Brad was able to go check it out. Based on that sale, newer combines and tractors are selling for $70,000 to $100,000 less than last year! Might not have wanted to be standing next to one of the farmers who bought last year!
Do you see this on your main street much?
How about a semi pulling up to the end of your driveway?
See any partly picked soybean fields when you’re out on a walk?
The number of semi with grain trailers on the road seems to have quadrupled overnight. My sister-in-law lives on a main road and said she counted one every minute for ten minutes.
The kittens at our child-sitter’s house just let Liza walk up to them and pick them up. She loves them, and it brings a smile to any face nearby!
What I’m Learning:
Good tasting cantaloupe grows in Nebraska gardens! I didn’t think that was possible.
This one came from a plant that Elliana started in a garden in a glove project at a summer camp. It’s the only plant out of five that lived, but it lived and produced!
Every forget to turn off a burner and then put a pyrex dish on it? Very, very, very bad! Especially when you’re in the middle of canning salsa. I now can’t quit wondering if I will ever get a bite of glass from this event in my food. Shutter!
Have a good week!
