Chuck is spending this week in Pine City readying the fields and getting the fencing up so we can move the animals up to pasture. With all this wet weather many farmers are behind at disking and planting, so we don't feel so bad. Chuck is plowing 8 acres that we will be renting from the family. Eventually I think our goal is to use this 8 acres as pasture but this year we hope to get a good hay crop. Being a farmer seems never living in the moment but always preparing and thinking of the next season. It is barely spring and we are preparing for winter!
