I arrived late Monday and spent Tuesday night at our son and daughter-in-laws house, it seemed I had arrived just in time, but the baby changed it's mind and we are still waiting for his/her arrival, missing September 11th and Friday the 13th, both of the "due dates."
Garry has been busy with farming and his new English book club for Summer Institute students in two cities, Dnepropetroesk and even harder to say, Dnepropajisk. On Wednesday they combined the sunflowers and got 8 tons, which he is trading for 14 tons of "mookooka" the meal made from sunflower seeds pressed for oil. which will be the cows protein to go with the barley or the dry corn they will be combining soon to grind for cow feed.

Here are some photos.

|Many fields looked like this, brown heads, or brown headless stalks|
