We had THREE Sanderson kids get married this summer… all within 4 weeks! Trent, Kurt and Rosie were always 3 peas in a pod growing up, so it only makes sense that they all got married at the same time.
Cheers to love, laughter and happily-ever-after!
The cover crops we seeded last fall (after harvest) are coming in nicely this spring! The idea behind these cover crops is to keep plants growing in the soil year-round; to keep the soil alive, if you will. Growing cover crops provides food to bugs and microbes in the soil to keep them working year-round. This will, in turn, help up to build up the organic matter in our soil. More organic matter means less synthetic fertilizers that we will need to apply to our fields. This is a boost to the environment as well as our input cost on the farm.
We are putting Rosie’s fiancé to work on the strip-till bar today. Other projects in the works around here are finishing up construction on the new office, getting the farm cleaned up for 2 weddings next summer, and hitting the ground running with some exiting new cover crop options! We must like to stay busy!
