Harvest is nearing completion. It has run relatively smoothly. I think!?
It seems to have flown by. Things have been busy with the boy's school and sporting
commitments and I have had my busiest ever months in the shed.
Yields seems to be good this year all over the Yorke Peninsula despite not getting
much of a finish on the crops.
There have been a few fires in the district this year. There was a big fire yesterday about
70kms South of us. I could see the smoke from our verandah. I always feel
uneasy on the hot and windy days.
We had one Catastrophic Fire Ban Day declared. On this day some schools in the area close and the school buses don't run.
The boys, especially Tommy are obsessed with farming!
The Reception and Year 1 class at our school has a group who all take their toy tractors, headers and trucks and play 'farms'every lunchtime. A few farmers of the future I think!
Looking forward to spending lots of time with my very tired looking farmer over the next few weeks leading up to Christmas and spoiling him rotten. The boys also cant wait to spend some time with their dad!
