Opening day of the Shattuck FFA greenhouse was today. It was packed FULL of green. And we sold a pile. It went really well. But, we’ve still got a lot. We had a lot of customers from other towns. I like it. I am still learning about this side of agriculture but it is fun to see what is in demand and use some ideas to teach about value-added products. You know something is going right when the kids are buying the projects before the sale.
Some boys finished up welding some projects to take to a local consignment auction.
Getting ready to head to state CDE contests this weekend.
I see that there was a buck sale tonight. I didn’t mean to miss it but I was dealing with goat related problems. Which does NOT mean that I didn’t buy anything.
My favorite son has hit a road bump or twelve during the past month. He hasn’t been capable of doing much right. Therefore, I had grounded him from driving. Wednesday was the first day that I let him have the keys again. And guess what, I now get to pay a deductible and get a pickup repaired. Nobody was hurt, but dang it still pisses a dad smooth off.
The insurance agent that called from “corporate” had questions. “Sir, how long has this child lived with you?”
I replied, “Since he was hatched.” She actually laughed and then asked, “So, he lives with you?”
“Yes. But ma’am, if you’ve have ever had a teenage son, then you know that there are definitely times that you would like him to live elsewhere.” , said ME!
One thing about a teenage son that knows that he is in trouble, some work gets done around the place. Barns are clean. And a bonus of his being grounded–I haven’t had a big fuel bill to pay at the local quick stop.
Banners & Backdrops this weekend. Sounds like a really good line up of goats that will be there.
