The weather forecast will determine how your day will go.
Your work clothes weigh quite a bit more by the end of the day due to all of the tools and other miscellaneous things you pick up through out the day.
You’re always late or can’t attend events due to farm chores, animal emergencies, equipment issues or just the fact that mother nature will wait for nobody and you had a field to finish.
Seeing farmland developed makes you hurt on the inside.
A good way to describe your day – Eat. Sleep. Farm. Repeat.
You’ve got an entire bookshelf (or more) devoted to parts manuals.
You try to convince your significant other that an overnight trip to pick up parts or look at farm equipment should count as a vacation.
You can’t keep your eyes on the road when driving by other Farmer’s fields.
Nothing compares to the smell of fresh cut hay or fesh turned dirt.
Your day was never a 9-5, it’s a “when I open my eyes til when I close them.”
You know the Farmer wave.
You’ve used your truck to haul passengers that weren’t human.
You know too well the meaning of horse high, pig tight and bull strong.
Baling Wire, WD-40, duct tape and pliers are all you really need in life.
You can remember the fertilizer rate, seed population, herbicide rate and yields on the farm from 10 years ago, but cannot recall your anniversary.
You give directions to your farm by using area landmarks, not road numbers.
Big family events are never planned during Plant or Harvest.
The smell of diesel will never leave you.
And finally, if given $1,000,000 you would keep right on farming. You might do things differently, but you’d keep farming because that is who and what you are.
