Part of working on a farm is learning about plants, weeds, soil, and equipment.  Part of being a farmer is learning how to drive a tractor and fix a combine.  And part of farming is just plain old hard work.  These boys are picking up straw bales from the wheat field behind our house.  They pick up each bale and stack it on the trailer.  When the trailer is full they stack each bale in a semi trailer.  When the semi trailer is full they stack each bale in the shed.  They worked for three days on just this field.  All three days the temperature was above 100 degrees with a higher heat index.  All three days they started at 5:00, after they had worked their regular jobs.


That is farming.
