Farmin’ Friday: Fencing after four inches

Joslyn and I rode along with John this morning as he did a little fencing. 

It rained four inches here this week, and it’s quite obvious by these few photos.

Sadly, we had some alfalfa down during this rain. We were all a little depressed about that, but for all the crops and pastures the rain was good. 


It is not this wet everywhere, we were just working in a low spot where the water from the rain is draining out toward Lake Henry. 

Happy Friday!

    I just finished reading your book Wild Man and so enjoyed reading about the stories of your family. I recall going to the Western Store to get our cowboy boots, and a ride over with my Dad to check out the poker game adventure at the Laundry mat in Auxvasse. Thanks for sharing the memories!

Hey there... I'm Sierra!

I love to blog, plan, organize, decorate, teach, research & be creative. I’m a farm wife & mama of three kiddos: almost 6, 4 and almost 2. We love to live and work in rural South Dakota. A few years ago we remodeled a house & we call our home The Peacock Ranch.

I am earning a Spiritual Direction Certificate from Sioux Falls Seminary & I put my masters in English/Mass Communications on hold at South Dakota State University so I can focus on being a mama in a pandemic! In the meantime, I’m enjoying reading more & writing here on the blog.
