Pa has the header out for it's annual 'LOOK OVER'. Getting into the body of the header and making sure everything that needs looking into is done prior to Harvesting.
This is the first time we have grown canola, it has beautiful yellow flowers that can be seen from a distance.
I have been checking this tree for days, waiting for the unusual flowers to start opening and display their beautiful pink colour. At last! it is nearly open, the 'curls' will straighten out - what a sight they will be and the birds will look for the nectar.
The Tour the MALLEE, left Swan Hill today 4th
September 2013 heading to Quambatook for the night. I was pulled over by the police and asked to stop on the roadside till they all had passed. There was a large escort of police on motor bikes and cars which were then followed by the riders. After this they had all the people that transport the camping gear, extra wheels etc. I was lucky to have a small camera with me, but they were travelling fast and this was all I could capture of the bike riders.
The days have been very warm, quite like summer days - but - we are anxiously looking for rain for the crops. The clouds have come over this evening and hopefully we will get something.
Nana has been planting out some tomato plants, seeds of corn and peas in the vegie patch. I will have to watch the weather forecasts to check for frost warnings, still very early in Spring. The strawberries are coming into flower, soon- can't wait -there will be lovely red strawberries to pick, yum.
Love to each and everybody.
NANA ON THE FARM.
