We finally were able to find an old dump truck to haul manure and gravel with. The truck formally was owned by the city of Granite Falls. Thankfully we were able to sell the old manure spreader which was not large enough to handle our endless supply of manure! This should extend the life of our old tractor and speed up the work load.
The good thing about having old farm equipment is that Mario (age 13) can learn how to fix things.
We ended up selling the old faithful CAT and replacing it with another, see photos below.
Bella and I took a road trip out west to see Jessi, Luke and the children. Below is a photo of some of us together on a hike. I took the tumbleweeds home to remind me of the trip. What a beautiful area of God’s green earth!!
When we arrived back in Minnesota the girls had finished painting the porch, a nice surprise and a ton of work.
Life is good by golly, enjoy yours!
