Coming in from cutting firewood ( hardly anything else to do on the farm right now except chores) I discovered among the mail my wife had brought in the newest RH magazine. What a joy!
Congratulations, Joe and Susan, for bringing out such a great magazine for ten years now! And I can imagine how nice it must be to do for a living what others would like to do for vacation, as you write in your publisher's post, Joe. Some of us who get to farm with draft horses share that privilege.
I enjoyed all the articles in the newest copy, Ralph Rice is always amazing in his practicality, and Katrina Julian is delightful to read with her reports about the Julian's farm life.
Even when some views have changed now about 'Tillage and Soil Management' and climate change will make some adjustments necessary, the old text reprinted from 1918, is very interesting.
I am glad that I do not need a deer fence, otherwise the Nordells' article is a must to read for people plagued by these creatures.
A word of caution, though, about the time-table of "Rural Heritage on RFD-TV": The text says it airs( like it has done in the past) on Tuesdays and..here the information is incomplete, but the dates shown do not square with my calendar for February when it comes to Saturdays. But I guess we will figure it out!
