As much as the rain complicates things sometimes, it's hard to curse the rain after the drought of 2012.
On a dairy farm, nothing stops just because it's harvest or planting or hay season. Cows are still milked at the same times twice or three times a day and they still need to be fed. Feeding calves is always my favorite. They are SO adorable!
For someone that loves to plan, harvest is definitely teaching me to be more flexible and just go along with whatever happens. It's so hard to give up control of my schedule and just be spontaneous, but that's not a bad thing for me to learn either.
As I'm sure you're already aware, harvest brings a lot more farm equipment onto the roads. Please be careful. These pieces of equipment are expensive and the hard working people in them are working long hours to get the crops in. Farmers appreciate your patience!
