A Change of Plans - It Happens All the Time on the Farm

So this morning I was working on a blog talking about how I had the morning at home and how I was getting all caught up on my house work...

Then I got the call...

"Can you come to the field and..."

This meant I was gone and wouldnt be returning home till who knows when.

So now I'm sitting at the field waiting for Calvin to empty the anhydrous tank he is pulling and I thought I would write a quick post from my phone.

If this works like it should there will be some pics on here too.

One of them is a picture of a mud hole I created. If you are friends with me on facebook or follow me on twitter you might have seen this pic already.

I was doing a little field work and Caleb failed to mention the places I should not drive. This meant that I almost got stuck three times in one field...not fun!!

I have also found some delicious morrel mushrooms...only two so far, but I hope there is more to come!!

And the only other pic I have on here is of this "cute" little guy I came across while looking for mushrooms. He was out for a nice little stroll in the sun. After he caught wind of me and took off he scared up another little snake as well as a little lizard. I usually run across all sorts of different critters when looking for mushrooms. So far I have seen 4 snakes, 2 deer, more squirrels and rabbits than I could count and almost steeped on one quail...

(Oh and a cooler with 8 16oz Bud Lites in it with a box that had 5 more 12 oz cans - 3 Bud Lites and 2 Natty Lites....some one's party must have gotten cut

Well that's about it for the time being. I'm gonna see about getting the guys their supper for tonight. Maybe tomorrow I will be able to finish the post I started this morning. It has better pics than this one.

Lots of Love from the corn field,



  1. I don't think we have those mushrooms up here. And snakes out already! Not fun. I went for a little jog tonight and I found so many badger holes. I just knew one would pop up and chase me, but luckily I didn't see one. I really need to get my bike tire fixed so I don't have to worry about them.

  2. I've heard amazing things about morels, but I've never had them! They grow out by my parents creek, though. I'm so leery of picking mushrooms, my Grandpa and his sisters picked them as kids, and uh, found some bad ones. ;) Of course if you know what you're looking for all is good, but I need to take a seasoned mushroom hunter with me, I guess.

    ANYWAY. Dont ya love being a gopher? ;)

  3. Ugh, I don't ever like coming across snakes! Luckily I haven't run across any so far. I'm knocking on wood!

  4. That's funny! I was to try posting from my phone. After seeing yours I might give it a go. Hope your planting goes well!

  5. I'm impressed at you bloggin' from your phone!!! :)

  6. First time I mowed this year was last Monday, and just as my luck would have it, I saw a snake within the first 20 minutes and of course, panicked, lol.

  7. I have had that phone call many a times!! Lucky have spring planting going on - still a bit too early here for that. Hoping you can visit my farm and say hi too!!
