During the hustle and bustle of shipping season, spring farming began, making the months of March, April and May some of our busiest months of the year. And as quietly as it began, last month, wheat and potato planting came to an end.
This year, our crops include chipping potatoes (of course!), wheat, barley, alfalfa hay and organic potatoes. We worked and planted fields as far north as the Running Y to just over the California border on Lower Klamath Lake and in the Tule Lake leases. However, instead of telling you about farming, how about we let the photos show you instead?
The following photographs were taken from the beginning to mid-May. From getting stuck to happy alfalfa fields, these pictures will give you a glimpse into joy and frustration of planting season at Walker Brothers.
Before we wrap up this post, John, Weston, Bill and Tricia would like to thank the planting crews for their hard work. We covered a lot of ground this year (literally), and did so through the perseverance and dedication of our hard-working crew. Thank you!
Let’s cross our fingers for a event-less growing season and a fantastic harvest!
