A friend grows straw for the home, farm and auto supply store and he isn’t in the fields yet. The ground is frozen.
In addition to producing wheat straw he grows commodity crops and has a tough row to hoe… literally.
I enjoy interacting with him and his crew as they remove a hundred bales from a gooseneck trailer and put them on pallets. Once re-stacked, I move them indoors with a lift truck.
I have been drafting emails to groups of which I am a part since I woke. Gotta stay on top of all that so when the ground thaws I can get my spade in it. Not yet… but soon.
