So Mom dug deep the other day and offered a paying job to any willing helper. I quickly got four of them.
Our forty acres is open field along the whole road side. Trent and Cole had helped me plant some trees along there last summer to start a windbreak. One of my big farm jobs this spring was to plant pine trees there as well. I had planned to buy some little trees from a catalog, but Cole suggested that we should just go check out in the woods. It has rained here off and on for a couple of weeks and we were able to easily dig out 3-to-8 foot pine trees and then plant them along the whole roadside in one afternoon.We quit counting half way at 74 trees... with nary a complaint... and followed by several days of more rain so hopefully they grow and we don't have to plant again next spring. Good job kiddos!
