Meet Buttercup! Buttercup is Bill's new heart-throb.
She has been keeping him pretty busy. Greg is her sidekick and says to Bill, " Treat her gentle, she starts hard. Just pump the he** outa her and she'll run like a dream."
Together, they have been getting the fields ready for next years potato crops. Greg, the organic potato entrepreneur, and our boss man, has leased another 100 some acres to work. The little fields, thankfully, are close to home. Bill's happy for something to do with his retired time.He's unloaded plenty of ton loads with a fork lift but not off a tractor, so he says it was a little tricky at first. I guess Greg thought his few pounds would counter-balance the weight, but that's what 4-wheel drive is for.....it was Bill's joke of the day.
Even the boss man was surprised as to how heavy chicken poo is, all compressed into 40, 50lb. bags, tightly wrapped. Greg and his daughter quickly added a few more bags to the flatbed of ol' Buttercup, before hauling the fertilizer to the next field. I hope the cover-crop seed arrives before the snow flies or it won't be planted. It will grow under snow but likes warmth to germinate.
Needless to say, a few days with Bill at the cabin,?..............
never happened. It must have been a God-send, tho., as my head is 'still' not right. GeeeezGollyAnyway! I guess it's true- it does take quite awhile for the brain to settle inside this thick skull~
Until next time~~~~~~~
From Me to You, Thanks for Stopping
