Harvesting Beans

 One of the benefits of living in the country is learning about where our food comes from. Thanksgiving Weekend is when farmers take off the beans. 

 The fields around us were no exception. Since Daddy was home he offered to take the beans to the mill for the farmer who does the fields here. The kids got a look in the wagon and felt the beans.


 Daddy and Austyn got their snacks and water ready and loaded up into the tractor. 

Off they went to the mill! Now Austyn wants to live on a farm and Daddy thought the experience was relaxing. We are now looking at farms. LOL!!!

How cool is that! Yes, we really don't consider where our food comes from most of the time... To me, vegetables are just there in the fridge or freezer. I know somebody had to grow it and harvest it, but to actually see/participate in that is a different matter. What a great education!
