We arrived at my parent’s farm last night. It was 96.8 degrees in the shade. Summer heat is finally here. With that heat came dry barley good enough to combine and Hunter got out to the field to get in on the first night of harvesting. He is back out there today, riding in the combine. Elizabeth is at house with Anika, Mama Jane and me. She has taken on the important job of making sure the dog and cats have plenty of water in this heat. And you can see she takes her duties quite seriously.
