A Season On The Farm

This was shot with a GoPro camera in Western Canada.  The music sure sounds like work, doesn't it?  Work, work, work!  Can anyone identify the white granule fertilizer being loaded into the big air seeder?

We really enjoyed our tour across Canada a year ago and wish we could do it again.  Canada is a huge country and is so different than mine, though we are neighbors!  You really have to experience Canada to appreciate it.

We drove from Steelhead Lake south of Glacier National Park, through Glacier on the "going to the sun road" right north into Alberta.  You don't have to drive very far from Glacier before you are in Canada.  That was still a pretty lonely little border patrol station.

Farmer Derek Klingenberg's farm videos are much lighter and fun to watch.  Even the grand children like his videos!  I remember bumblebees in the hay!

What does the farmer say?  This one says it's too darned cold and he's tired of burning wood already and it's not even Christmas!  Today's picture was taken a month ago and there was already snow on the ground.  Now everything is totally white!  That's unusual for southwest Ohio since we have lived here.   "How is the weather at your place?"

Have a great day!

  1. In a word , its "cold" in this part of Canada right now and I don't like it much at all. Plus Sask tel has me on "starvation rations " for internet now so I have to limit my youtube viewing. Hibernation is starting to look like an attractive option.

  2. We've noticed you Canadian's do not hibernate, Ralph! We sure enjoyed our trip your direction a year ago and the reminder keeps coming back up!
