|Bales that went up into the mow around noontime|
Last week they were baling the wheat (I was wrong they did not make it into silage). It was a bit tricky to bale up, it was slippery and broke a number of bales the first day as the strings were being tied.
Garry will be up and out on the tractor in the morning, raking hay so they they can bale tomorrow.

The water was turned on for the corn field last week. It was not on when we stopped on Sunday but I got a couple photos.
The black things are filters, they are cleaned out everyday. They keep dirt out of the system that could plug them up.
Garry says some of the other corn fields are looking a little wilted since we still have not gotten more than a sprinkle in the last month. It could very well mean that this could be the only corn we harvest this year if it doesn't rain soon.
|Look baby corn up!|

I brought their soup outside to eat under the trees, as they were finishing the frames, and we reminisced about how we ate outside all the time the first summer were were here in 2009.

They tried to start a new hive today with some not yet hatched frames of workers and a queen from the busy green gang. They also checked the other hives and were happy to report that the bees that Garry and Max caught have settled in and the queen is laying now.
When Victor checked the yellow box that they left, he reported that the new queen is not fertilized and laying eggs yet. He says they will check on them again next week to see how they are progressing.
