Doing things that others think just happen

Life has been busy here on the farm.  The crops are growing like crazy and the weeds are growing even faster.  The rains really strung out the planting season right into the weed control and fertilizing times, we never did get to rock picking.  We baled a little hay, and hauled the last of thee 2011 crop into town in there somewhere also.  There were windy days and wet days, and days when work went from can see to can’t see.  Throw in a funeral and a wedding in Colorado about a month apart, a little knee surgery with all of the doctor appointments and you have little time to yourself.  There are so many things going on to keep me going, why would I want another job?  Well, I’ve got one.

Saturday, July 7 our local Farm Bureau will be hosting Breakfast on the Farm at Dean and Elizabeth Johnson’s farm.  This is a big event that should bring lots of folks out to see how a dairy farm works.  The problem is that it takes a lot of work by a lot of people, and as chairman of the county Farm Bureau, I’m one of them.

There are details to be taken care of, jobs to portion out to other workers, donations to be asked for and meetings to attend to make sure that all of the details are taken care of.  Yep, I’m one of those people doing things that others think just happen.

So come join us for Breakfast on the Farm to make all of our work worthwhile.  We’ve been doing it all for you.

I just caught the tail end of a radio interview talking about this breakfast event on the farm. I googled and came up with your blog. I would love more info on this. It sounds like something my family would enjoy. Thank you! Karin Hewitt. Lizzardbits @gmail. com. Or five zero seven 626 1040

The Cottonwood county event is at the Dean and Elizabeth Johnson farm on Cottonwood County 13. It’s about 12 miles west of Windom, You can reach it on Cottonwood county 5 by going north from Heron Lake, or South from Storden then turn east on 13, about a half a mile east of the 13 and 5 intersection.
