|Chopping right in the wagons beside the tractor|
Some days they have had two tractors and wagons going to bring the silage home form the field and sometimes just one. They chopped the "bad" parts of the field. Garry was surprized how dry the corn plants were, last Friday he thought it would be another week before it was ready, but we still haven't got any rain, missing another thunderstorm on Thursday afternoon. It was close enough that Polo jumped in my lap shaking, but not even a drop of rain here!
Maxim tries to keep him off the tractor, he's convinced that Garry drives so fast it is hurting the frame of the loader tractor, but he drives some anyway. Victor has driven the tractor chopping a bit, he was out on Wednesday to bring out a new pressure tank for the water pump for the barn, and stayed overnight and helped in the field until it was time to sell milk in the city Thursday afternoon. Today he came out to take over driving with Garry, so Maxim, his wife Yulia and brother Andrey, could leave to go home to Kherson to celebrate their father's 50th birthday.

Someone climbed the big pile of straw bales to take the next photos:
