I just downloaded pictures I took on a garden tour this summer. It's in my photobucket under 2006 garden tour. Enjoy!

PS - The picture of the cute boy is my Brady, and there is a picture of the 2 of us in there also.

There is one picture of me way in the background by a BIG TREE - up in the fork of the tree is a sign that says '96 crest. That is where the crest was from the river way in the background was during a major flood. Unreal.

I don't know why the garden tour pictures downloaded so dark - the actual pictures turned out great. Sorry!

Yes - the flood of 96/97 was awful. We live 50 miles from Fargo out in the country - I was pregnant with my first son, there was the flood, then there was the ice storm that brought down hundred of electricity poles all over the state and we had no power for 3 nights and 4 days! We made soup and grilled cheese and hot chocolate on our wood stove in the basement and slept in front of the fireplace on the main floor and listened to the radio! The first night was kind of 'fun' - no power, just the fireplace and played cards, then the next day - it was terrible. Fargo was an 'island'. Unreal. Seeing that tree mark, unbelievable!

I bet. Flooding is a very scary thing to be involved in.

Rich farmer? Hardly. We farm about 1800 acres - and we are considered a small farmer around here. It's just us - my husband and I and the boys - no hired men, but we do 'buddy up' with a friend of ours during harvest who does have a hired man or 2, so we have 2 combines and more trucks, etc. going.

But yes, it was taken from the air. The farms had their pic's taken last month for a 125th town anniversary next summer for a book being printed. My husband does have a plane - he and a few other guys have a flying club.

That is a lot of land to farm, just the two of you. What do you grow?

We visited Jameston,N.D. about 5 years ago.. A fellow my man was in the air force with.. He farmed 1600, acres and went under.......Huge buildings .. and small house.. Ha
Had a cottonwood treee in his yard blowing all over..He was a nice man to talk to.

We are fond of the west..Love to look at the corn..Been out there 10 times now.
Did you ever go up to south dakota to see the Terry Redlin Museum or concerts? We was there to see the Mannheim Steamrollers and Chip Davis free show........Beautiful.

What will the book of farms cost when they make them?
