It’s August, and the living is a little easier.
I’m now a corn and soybean farmer, as such August is the time of year when not much is left to be done for field work and prep work for harvest is not really urgent. I remember the days when hogs were our main source of income, and the chores never really stopped. I have a beef producer friend who is gearing up for silage harvest. For me, August is a slower time.
So what to do with myself. Wife has some ideas, and those are getting done. Farmfest is over, I spent a day there. We have a family reunion coming up, I’ll be attending that. The county fair is coming, as is the Threashing Bee and the State Fair. Early September will see Labor Day activities and the Delft Furrow Makers plowing day with antique tractors. All things to help occupy my time in what is the slow part of the year.
School is just around the corner, and I’ll be back driving school bus in just over 2 weeks. That marks the beginning of the end for summer, but late summer can still be a bit slower.
So enjoy your slow part of the year, whenever that may come. For me, it’s August, and the living is a little easier.
