Last Saturday we went to check on my grandmother and the farm. Grant and my Dad and I went out to check on on the newly planted pine trees. Here's a picture of Grant straightening a baby tree while my Dad supervises. My Dad has had most of my Granddad's farm planted with these little beauties recently.
This is a tremendous gift my parents are giving to me and my brother and our families for the future. Although Jay and I don't like to talk about it, my Dad is very practical in pointing out that he may not be around when it's time to harvest these trees. Jay and I always thought we'd end up farming that land some day and now we know we will be, just not cows or crops.
