Well this was a tough week for this mommy and farmer's wife ... I left on Tuesday afternoon for a work meeting and didn't return home until 4pm today. What a long week it was and I sure missed a lot at home and on the farm.
Since it has been ages since we received any amount of rainfall on the farm, harvest was again in full swing this week on our family farm. In fact, we finished soybean harvest this week. I don't know if I remember being done with soybean harvest before October 1st during my 10 years of marriage to The Farmer.

Although time if flying by and I can't believe it, it is already October 1st and October is a big month for us. For starters, October is National Pork Month. As pig farmers, we are excited to celebrate pork for an entire month. We already eat a lot of pork around this pig pen so we will definitely be partaking in our share of pork burgers, ribs, and bacon to name a few pork items this month to celebrate and I hope to share some of those recipes in future posts. What will you and your family be doing to celebrate National Pork Month?

I hope you all enjoyed the first installment of The Real Farmwives of America last week. I'm really excited and grateful for all of the positive feedback I have received about it. As part of another new edition to Farmer Fridays, next Friday, I will have a guest blogger, Amy and Liz from 2 Maids A Milking so be sure to check it out next Friday.
Have a great weekend!!
