Fall is Here

Ounce again fall is here in East Texas. I always have mixed feelings this time of year. Good feeling is that, some relief from the Texas heat. And what crops we had are harvested. The bad feeling, or maybe I should say sad feelings. Trees are going dormant, no more green. But they too have had a hard year (being dry and all) Now it is a time of rest. The flowers will all die back waiting on spring. Lots of the birds have also left for winter.
And I hate cold weather. The fruit trees need some cold so they will produce next year. I guess there is some good comes from being cold. Up to a point anyway. We have some bad ice storms some years (not good). The pine trees suffer the most, they collect so much ice it brakes off the limbs. More rain coming tomorrow. I can tell you for sure though any day I can get up will be a blessed day.
After this boring post maybe I should post a nice fall photo.
Fall Has Arrived

Rain, Rain and more Rain

Where the heck was all this water when we needed it. You know back in the summer when it was so dry. Central Texas was about to dry up completely. Us here in the Eastern part of the state got dry but not like other parts of the state.

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

Well another growing season bites the dust.

Yep, its over. I am happy and sad at the same time. Now that makes no since at all does it?
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.
Later Y'all
