This past week, I was up at the house working on making a mess in the kitchen (yes, yes, just for you guys to see on here hopefully soon!) when I looked outside and saw smoke barreling out of the field of wheat stubble across the hill. So, what do we do? We hop on a fourwheeler (camera in tow, of course) and head up to offer a behind-the-scenes look at this whole thing!
Unfortunately, with a big batch of- (Nice try, I can’t give away what we were making that easily!!) we didn’t make it up there in time to see the fire on this side of the field… And we didn’t (or at least I didn’t) really want to go riding through the smoke to find the roaring furnace on the other side, so we contented ourselves with just watching from this side of the fire!Here, someone would be on the tractor with the sprayer going around the outer edge of the field putting out the adventurous little fires that tried to escape.
And here was about the last picture I took before we headed back to the house… Everything was starting to die down a little bit.
And here was the view from the house! This was when it was about done burning, but you can see there was still some fire going on the right (under the tree branch).
Coming soon… An old recipe that’s been passed down through the family for generations. It’s hearty, very much freezer friendly and makes a huge batch that is perfect for a large family! (Nope, no more hints!)
