Busy October

October has been a busy month.  The month started with the Annual meeting of the Alabama Treasure Forest Association.  This started on a Thursday night with a board meeting, on Friday Educational seminars with a banquet, and ended on Saturday with a tour on forest management. 
I continued to bush hogging fields and roads and planting fall fields.  Some are really starting to look good.

I had some help inspecting tree stands to make sure they were safe but I have many more to check.

We did take time for camping with the grandchildren.  One did not want to leave when we got all packed up.  She said she wanted to stay another night.

Mattie had to have a leaf for a classroom project so we got out and found her one.  She took extras to class for the other boys and girls that might not have the opportunity to go into the forest and get a leaf. 

Then it was on to Moultrie, Georgia for the Ag Expo.  We get invited back each year because we competed in the Southeastern Farmer of  the Year in 2008.  This is always a good trip attending the banquet, seeing the Expo and learning about new equipment.

Then we were to host 200 fifth grade students on our property for Classroom in the Forest but the rain postponed it till the first of November.  I had been working on the trail and clearing spots to do the forest activities.  Well October is going fast and it has been a busy month.
