Farming fatigue – it’s on!
April was cold, windy, rainy, and not conducive to farming.
May has blasted to record and near-record highs in Illinois. About 90 degrees this week.
Can you see the humid haze in the pic below, taken about 6 am?
Yet, it is also exciting.
Imagine how excited this shed cat was when he finally crawled out from his hidey hole on the tractor to take a look! My farmer had been out on the tractor for about an hour and a half, when he saw this cat outside the tractor door! Note: The cat made it home safely and has been grounded from future joy rides.
Tailgate meetings are also important.
Sorry it is blurry. My camera lens steamed over when I brought it outside!
Hopefully, my farmer is home earlier tonight (or tomorrow morning?) than he was last night (this morning?). Going to bed at 2:30 am is for the young kids that don’t have to get up at 4:30 am!
Prayers for all the farmers and their families!
