Yep, it's over....





Another Harvest has come and gone.....It's a real milestone in the life of a farmer and the wife of a farmer. You start thinking about next year's harvest as soon as this year's harvest is over. The weather is never quite warm enough, there is never enough rain, the potatoe's are never big enough and next year's price is sure to be better!!! In my experience (20 years as a farmer's wife) good years come along every 10 years. Ours was last year which means only 8 more....I think I can hold on.
We definetly look forward to seeing Reid a little more around the house....(or church, whichever comes first.)

I had no idea how much people depended on weather until I moved here. I'm a big city girl. I still get excited when I see a cow. I never thought I would pray so much about the weather. Here's hoping those good years come along much more frequently - you deserve it!

Potato harvest brings back fond memories of growing up on a potato farm! It is a year round job! Hang on for the ride!

Now that is a good looking fleet of trucks...love the Baker Farms Logo! Farming is in my blood. I love that Draper is a farming community with nice housing areas. There are cows a block away and lots of fresh produce. I agree you deserve 10 years straight of "GOOD YEARS". :)

Wow I had no idea how involved you guys are in harvesting and everything! That takes a lot of hard work! I hope all is well with you and the fam!
