Gloamy radishes and lightning bugs

The corn is knee high and the alfalfa is cut and baled and so Iowa is patterned with these stripes and polka dots. The lightning bugs arrived all-at-once, after a hot day, before a storm.

Today we weighed the small trailer, 920 lbs.

Finishing wood

We took a trip to Iowa City to put finish on our wood wall pieces. John, Greta, and Carlos made an assembly line.Greta carried the pieces to the spray station.
John sprayed on finish - three coats on the back, two on the front. We will install the pieces then spray a final coat on the fronts.
Carlos carried the pieces away, stacking them on shelves. Greta was standing ready with the next piece.
