-On Saturday, Farmer Ian cultivated the potatoes.
-Ian also noted that the field corn is now beyond the state at which it can be cultivated.
-On Tuesday, Farmer Rob ran the combine through the wheat field. It was weedy—lots of thistle.
-The spelt field, not quite ready to harvest, is overrun with thistle.
Other discussion was of the small but important details of running a farm—the supply of cat food for the barn cat, the price of Skin-So-Soft to keep the flies off the horses, when to schedule the next visit from a farrier, Sunday chores schedules, mowing priorities, etc. etc.
