Farm Friday: It Puts the Peanut Butter on the Bread....

All around the farmstead are these big, beautiful plants in the fields.

It's hard to believe that just a few months ago they were small seedlings, and now they've sprouted up all around us.  Their big bushy greens busting out from the ground....

And of course, the big, gigantic, bulb of....

The Sugar Beet.

THIS is what the Big Guy works with everyday.
THIS is what causes his clothes to smell AWFUL.
THIS is what puts the peanut butter on the bread, people.

And if anyone ever says that you're eating too much sugar, just tell them, sugar is a vegetable.

Have a safe holiday weekend, everyone!

As my hog farmer friend says, "That stink is the smell of money!"

Sorry I've been away for a while. Life was just crazy for a while.
