31 Days from a Tractor Seat

I'll be the first to admit that I have neglected my blog lately (I guess that's what happens when you're pregnant with baby #3 and all you want to do is take naps whenever possible...), but that is all going to stop because I have signed up for the #31Days blogging challenge, that encourages bloggers to write a post every day in the month of October.

The first thing to do after I accepted this challenge was to come up with a topic to blog about for 31 days.  Many things came to mind such as family, food, and agriculture.  So as I pondered more about my topic from the comfort of my tractor during our fall corn and soybean harvest, I got to thinking, why not blog about:  


I always tell everyone that fall harvest gives me a lot of "thinking time" while I'm in the tractor and I always come up with lots of ideas.  So this fall I'm challenging myself to actually act upon those ideas and share my thoughts with you all through this series about things like agriculture facts, harvest fundamentals, "tractor approved" recipes, and of course some fun photos from the field.

And we might as well start by sharing a couple photos from harvest this week!

  1. I want to hear all about the things that you see when you are in the tractor seat!!! I think it might be eye opening --not just fields and rows, right? I am excited to be on this 31 day journey with you! You go!

    1. Great idea Beth Ann! I have to admit that it really is usually just fields and rows but I'll have to make sure and document the other things like wildlife.

  2. Love it! My goal is once a month LOL! I will read your posts while harvesting here on the Eastern Shore of Maryland! My comment for the cause is Honor Flight. My son and I witnessed the arrival of an Honor Flight of WWII and Korean War vets at the Baltimore airport this past weekend. It was moving as the concourse was lined with active military there to greet them and a whole bunch of passengers like ourselves joining in.

  3. As a farm wife, I want to hear about how you deal with the kids while you are in that tractor seat. From naps, to play time, to feeding them...etc! I'm not a wife that is in the field (unless I have a day to help, and the kids are at daycare/school), so I'm intrigued on how you do it! :)

    1. Lots of patience :) I usually only handle one kid at a time but yesterday I actually had both kids in the tractor with me for a few hours. Good idea Kellie!

  4. Thank you for joining the Country Fair Blog Party for October! Your post is a great addition to the party! Can't wait to read the rest of your posts from the tractor seat. Still take a nap or two when you get the chance. :) We are still a few weeks away from soybean harvest, but corn harvest is right around the corner. My favorite time of year!
