Summer days are long and full. Working from daylight to dark can make a full day.
We are having a real long dry spell. We got a good rain in April, so everything is turning brown. Somehow the corn is going to make a partial crop.
Dry weather is good for hay. We mowed hay yesterday and will roll it up today. I am selling calves at the Holdenville sale barn today, but they were shipped yesterday.
The Fisher family loads a wagon with sweet corn.
Our morning started with picking a wagon load of corn. Just enough corn for the sales here at our house. We also dug potatoes to be sold at the Oklahoma Food Coop which is Thursday this week. It makes for a good night’s sleep.
Hi, my name is Kenny Fisher. I am a small farmer-rancher in the bottom corner of Creek County. I have a wife and six children, four grown and twins in the second grade. We will be sharing stories and pictures from our farm through the growing season this year. Spring has arrived! Here are a few pictures from the farm this week.
Five acres of asparagus getting a good spring rain.
The hoop house, just moved from the salad patch to the tomatoes.
So far, the only corn that has come up is in the greenhouse. This will soon be a pickup load of organic sweet corn.
