Stoskopf Diaries

June 10, 1997

Wheat harvest is getting closer! The color of the wheat is changing day by day - it's really turning from green to gold. June 20th is the date I use as my target date. Other than ball games and 4-H, we don't plan anything for the end of June or first of July.

It's hard to believe that it's nearly the middle of June as the weather has been cool. Unfortunately, the rains have been missing us so we're really starting to get dusty and dry. At least one pasture is really low on pond water. At the same time, it's been so cool and damp, it's been hard to get the alfalfa put up. We're still working on baling the first cutting. Dean still has some milo left to plant. He says that we'll be ready for it to rain really good by the middle of the week.

With ball games, make up games for the nights it rained in town, and ball practices, we're at the ball park almost every night. We did have our 4-H club tour Sunday afternoon. All the families met and traveled to the different farms to look at the 4-H animals. One highlight was a 3 1/2 hour-old baby goat! Pigs, sheep, horses, bucket calves, chickens, a 4-H market steer, rabbits, and kittens - we really saw it all! The tour ended with a picnic in the park and the kids playing on the merry-go-round and the jungle gym.
