Say High to the Boy :)

Every once in awhile the excitement on the farm is getting a new piece of machinery. Such was the case last week when this was delivered to our yard.

For our friends who are not farmers, this interesting machine is called a high boy sprayer. And even though spraying crops is our least favorite thing about farming, it is a necessary part of growing them. We spray for many things like bugs that want to eat away our plants, to pesky weeds that threaten to choke out our crops and diseases that threaten to cut down our yields. It was HIGH time for a newer sprayer and this BOY is going to make things a lot easier and will also eliminate the need of hiring others to do spraying for us :)


All of our boys were very excited as they had been waiting a long time for this exciting delivery. As soon as the word came that the delivery was at the end of our lane they threw on their winter gear as fast as they could and were out there to look it over.

Of course everyone had to have a test drive! How many kids can you fit in a tiny little cab? In our family.....quite a few :)

And of course our photographer had to take pictures from every angle :)
So there you have it.....the newest addition to our farm machinery.

Wow that sounds like our house. When we got our new tractor the guys were just like little kids with a new toy. Enjoy it and how enjoyable it will be when it makes the spraying job easier. Have a great day Rebekah.
