In picture above, my Uncle Cecil, Grandpa and cousin Kenneth
When I think of summer, this week's word for Theme Thursday, I think of how hard farmers work in the summer. My grandparents and uncles were all farmers, mostly growing wheat. They had other crops like hay and grains and of course they raised cattle, for eating and for their milk, and pigs for eating and chickens.These are some very old pictures, probably in the late 1930s or very early 40's. Considering I am the granddaughter of farmers and I lived in country for 11 years, I know very little about farming. But I am sure that in this picture, it shows bales of hay on a trailer behind a tractor.
Grandpa - after working on the farm all day
Grandma - I am guessing she has been out working in her vegetable garden or tending to her chickens.
