Tonight at 9:21 Mom closed the north gate. It is the first time in about two weeks that it has been closed. To most people that would mean nothing but to us it means alot. We picked up the last few bales from the pasture tonight and put it up in the barn. That means the pasture is done. Now it is time to get ready to start school full time. It is time for fairs and getting ready for winter. I know that sounds wierd but on a farm you are always getting ready for something. In the summer we hay and put it up for winter. In the fall we cut wood to have heat in the winter. In the winter we prepare and repair everything for spring. In Spring we are planting so that we will have a fall harest. Like I said always getting ready for the next season. With the north gate shut the only hay left to do is the right away. It can be done in about 3 days and then Our Summer is over.
