Geese are Here

With the rain, harvest has come to a halt. Quite a few farmers seem to have their crops off, though. The rest will just have to wait for dry weather.

The first large flocks of Canada geese have begun to pass overhead. You hear them gabbling before they hove into sight. It's a great time of year to be here.

Fall has its own unique scents as well as its sights and sounds. It's one of my favourite seasons, and every bit as welcome as springtime.


Scott turns 56 tomorrow. Wish him a happy birthday if you see him! Looks like this year he won't be in the field; maybe I'll take him out for supper. At the very least, I'll make the cake he has requested: chocolate, no icing, so he can pour milk on it. (Yuk! but whatever the birthday boy wants ... .)

    1. We had more rain last night so Farmboy is disheartened, of course. I'm not the most sympathetic spouse; you know the weather risks you're taking when you choose to farm. Kind of like living in Canada: you're well aware there will be winter and mosquitoes, so complaining is just an unnecessary habit.
