Combining beans at Mirror Lake







Today is kinda cold and damp not enjoyable fall like weather, so I thought I'd leave a post. Mid October "Big Boss Jed" combines the beans here at Mirror lake. Yields are not what the farmers were hoping for; but with the lack of rain (when it was needed) low yields were expected. With yields low you try to get as much as you can even if it means sometimes you get to close to the wet ground and oh well even the best gets stuck. Jed climbs out of the combine to see how badly he stuck!! Milk-in Jim is called to duty with another John Deere tractor our 4 wheel drive tractor is in the repair shop. If this tractor can't do it we'll have to call a wrecker. Just a minor set back but off he goes to finish many acres of beans here at Mirror lake. "Big Boss Jed" has finished the beans now Milk-In Jim gets to take so time out of the milk house and he picks the corn.

A Wonderful Fall Day In October In Indiana


It is October 14, 2008 a bit cloudy but a 68 degrees on a wonderful fall day here in Indiana. The leaves have really started to turn colors this last week. I hope the rain doesn't come and wash them all away, it's days like this that a walk in the woods is so relaxing. Enjoy the fall!!!

Deer Hunting - Season soon to open!! November 15

This is a sign of deer damage they can do this in no time to ALL the outside rows and more, that doesn't leave much corn on the cob!!!
Please remember everything is great in the right numbers. I love watching the deer, rabbits, and geese, but to farmer's and gardener's they are a pain- to put in plain and simple. They can eat and destroy your gardens and crops in no time. After regulated hunting seasons many people put meat in their freezers to feed their families. They have been hunting for hundreds of years and the animals rebuild for the next year season and there always seems to be plenty of them. I was riding my horse Tuesday evening and the weather was just beautiful. Of coarse I did not have my camera with me, but I saw 9 does and 4 bucks (6 pointers or so). The 4 bucks were all traveling together, the does were in about 4 different places. I was so excited and I don't even hunt. So Thursday night I went prepared to take pictures and of coarse I did not see one deer, oh well. I'll try next time! Hunters stay at Mirror Lake B&B and pay to hunt our 18 acre woods, they bring their own stands and normally scout the area for deer prier to their hunting weekend.
P.S. I should add we do have some family members and friends that hunt woods on our farm as well.
