"When tillage begins, other arts follow. The farmers, therefore, are the founders of human civilization." -- Daniel Webster
Over the years, I've always been proud to tell people that I grew up on a farm.
Agronomy gave an orderliness to summers when I was a kid. Plowing, discing and cultipacking, and planting oats, corn and soy beans were done in the spring. Our summers saw baling hay, harvesting wheat, baling straw, cultivating corn and beans, combining oats, baling more straw, more cultivating and baling a second cutting of hay.
