The attack on Pearl Harbor is most likely not remembered by most readers . I know I was very young when it happen. I remember being scared, listing to the old folks talk about the bombs and the ships that had been sunk, and all the men and women that had died. I am also scared today for our great country, America wakeup pay attention to whats happening to our country.
Do not forget who we are and what we stand for.
A lot of men and women have paid with there lives for the freedom we have, lets not lose it.
It can happen It did happen December 7th 1941. This is Gods country, a Christian nation. I don't care what Obama says.

Anyway it has been raining for about two weeks now (Eastern Part) over 6" so far and more coming, maybe it will store some water for summer. Our farm pond is full, bet the fish like that. I was afraid that it might dry up. It didn't, I was super pleased because of the fish. My Grand Kids like fishing in the pond, so do I. OK, so for now don't do any more rain dances on our behalf. But I may be calling on Y'all later so keep in practice. ChileFarmer
The Farm Pond
Thursday, October 8, 2009
This has been the worst growing season we have ever had. Nothing worked out like it was supposed to. But as Farmers we always say well maybe next year. Maybe deer season will perk thinks up, at least the deer should be good and fat. They have been eating our crops all year. Now its payback time.My grandson says "Pawpaw" you aren't going to shoot Bambi are you, Nope, but his daddy and mama are up for grabs. Time for some back strap and deer sausage.

Planted beans today. It will be pushing it for them to make before frost. They should mature about mid November. But nothing planted nothing to harvest. But with the raising cost of seed it does require some thought. 50 pounds of bean seed right now $165.00 ($1.65 pound) They are cheaper than that at the market. (Maybe that is where I need to buy my seed.) Thats up $20.00 per 50 pounds from spring price.
Anyway they are in the ground and the ground is damp. They should be up in a few days. I may even have some photos to post. And maybe the deer wont find them, Oh well, I like deer meat.

Now if I could just find a way to keep the deer from eating our Chile plants I would be really pleased. We have never had this trouble before, but this year It is really bad.

And it is so much cooler this morning, Maybe the 100° temps. will be gone for a few days.
Our pea crop was just about done in for lack of rain, this shower may save some of them. Only time will tell. But I am happy this morning because of the rain.

The Chile plants are also looking good, I just hope we can keep the weeds down. Sometime there isn't enough time to go around. But you do the best you can.
"Blueberries are ready" Picking has started in full swing most of our regular pickers have showed up this year "another good thing" So all in all life is good. Now the selling starts.

BEANS, they are doing good, some bug trouble but nothing unusual. They are planted on some sandy land so have been able to work the after the rains. They are blooming, now if they will just set some beans we Will be in great shape.
CHILE PLANTING, will start in the morning if no rain falls tonight. Not bad only about 3 weeks behind. I will be so pleased to get those little buggers planted. I was begining to think we might have to harvest them in the flats. I hope to take some photos of us planting.

The good news the beans look OK so far. Corn got bit some but it may recover.
We covered the wife's garden and all the plants here at the house, I told them it was to early to plant flowers. But Hey, what do I know about flowers (nothing) only that I like them. This is a photo of the cover job. I think we used all the sheets, towels and blankets we had. Dang, I hope we don't have to do that again.

At least you can tell we really did plant onions. They are growing, got fertilizer today, may get to put it out in a few days. They are not hurting right now, we disc in our summer and cover crop.So they still have plenty to eat. I hope soon we will have plenty of onions.
