Been Farmin' Long?

Here's some of the Hemmeke men replanting corn on Memorial Day in mid-80 degree heat. We found Steve's brother Cal in the field and *had* to get tractor rides for the kids.

Owen contemplating farm life.

Grace learned about "field potties." Cal learned not to start planting with no water or food along. I learned that if you stand looking at a tractor passing farmers will stop and assume you know everything about the ongoing field work.

  1. gotta love that!

    the thing i love about driving through field country is the one or two finger wave/salute to everyone you pass while the rest of the hand remains attached to the steering wheel... (or is that just my dad?)

    you HAVE TO frame that picture of Owen--what a great shot! next time just make sure he's wearing a john deere cap. :)
