Cashing out an employee that was buying two Red Bull
After the dough is cut into 5-6 pieces out of the oval shaped finished dough, we roll the dough through the crank to flatten the pieces out. The pieces of dough need to be flattened twice until they are about 4 feet long.  I bought a noodle cutter like the one shown in this picture. It was necessary for my business to strive since I could no longer use this one and it is a huge asset to my business. I can make smaller or larger cuts of noodles with this machine, as well as flattens them as shown
This is how you get to the rooftop garden. The box is a recycled semi trailer and you take the stairs to the top of the trailer to get to the garden on top.

Unloading the corn from the combine into a hopper or grain wagon is important because the combine can only hold so much corn before it over flows and needs dumped.  This picture shows me dumping my corn from the combine into the grain hopper to later be transported into the grain truck.  By putting my corn into the hopper I can figure out how many bushels I have harvested off the field and how much the crops weigh, to get an estimate before taking my crop to the elevated to be finally weighed.
Once the noodles lay on the table for about 15-20 minutes, we have to cut the noodles into 6-8 squares. Once we have a pile of squares, one person cranks the handle and another puts the squares into the grinder. This is another example of a similar noodle cutter that I bought, since my Amish friends moved away. This example picture is showing the actual cutting of the noodles. This is the size of noodles that I usually make, but I can make them into a thicker size of noodles with the machine.
In this picture I am watering my tomato plant and making sure that it is getting enough water.
Planting the corn seed is another step in farming.  This picture shows me putting corn seed into the planter.  The planter has many different compartments that hold the corn seed while I am planting.  The boxes or compartments hold one rows worth of corn.  The corn comes out of the planter and is perfectly planted in the field with equal distances between the planted seeds.  After I filled the planter with corn seed I took the planter out to the field to be planted.  The type of corn that I planted was Steward seed corn.

Walking your pig is important to make sure that your pig stays healthy and fit. I walk my pigs more often towards fair time because my pigs usually need to loss weight. If a pig needs to gain weight I will not walk my pigs as often so that they don

During the beginning weeks of September, FFA members sold over 1,400 different mums, making over $11,000! Members of the chapter had the option to use two dollars from every mum that they sold toward any FFA activity. The 8th period ag business class sold the most mums and won a pizza party for their efforts. The Kenton-OHP FFA chapter would like to thank every member who participated in the event and every community member that purchased these mums. A special shout out to Lovina's Greenhouse for providing a variety of different colored mums for us to sell.
