It’s Fall, ya’ll!

Harvest is in full swing here on Marshall Farms!

Anna in the combine

Brett and Anna have been jockeying for position on the combine.


Daddy is a rare and elusive creature that comes out of the field only when it rains.


And life has taken on a frantic new feeling as we rush to get corn out of quickly flooding fields and into the bins.  If all goes well this should be a fantastic year for crop production, but never count your chickens before they’re hatched or your bushels before they’re in the bin.  Harvest may be in full swing, but it’s certainly not over!

But aside from the hectic harvest we’ve been a little crazy around here for another reason. Please excuse my lack of blogging, but we recently added another foster child to our family. She’s five years old and really cute, but it’s been a little overwhelming.

So enjoy the fall leaves, be patient with the slow-moving combines (they’re feeding the world), and say a prayer for our family if you think about it.  Happy fall ya’ll.

  1. I was looking for some tractor related stuff on Google and came across your blog. I really enjoyed browsing through all your posts of life on your farm.

  2. Here’s to a safe harvest for the Marshall Harvest Crew! Wonderful that you all are fostering! What a blessing you will be to this little girl.

  3. Praying for you, Kelly. You have your priorities in order and are doing the Lord’s work. Don’t feel a bit guilty about posting less frequently. (That harvest looks great! I hope the recent rains haven’t hurt things to much. We dumped 10 gallons of water out of our basement today and it’s still pouring in. Hoping it’s dryer up there.)
