Work is picking up on our farm this week. We are spraying for Johnsongrass during this gorgeous week of weather. The predicted rains and cool weather have disappeared, and it once again is hot and humid. Mark went on a barge tour in Louisville, Kentucky, this week. The barge went through a lock and dam on the Ohio River. Infrastructure on our rivers is vitally important to agriculture. Considering the age of some our locks and dams, we need to be diligent in our maintenance of these structures.
I trained eight Ag in the Classroom volunteers in PikeCounty on Tuesday. It is exciting to see so much interest in educating our consumers and future consumers about where their food comes from.
We are looking forward to the calm before harvest this Labor Day. Mark’s honey-do list is growing, and time is running out for him to help me accomplish some of these tasks. Hope all is well with you. Until next week, have a great day.
