Putting the gas in the mower is a very simple process but you still have to be very careful not to spill any gasoline,which could create problems. Luckily for me my parents purchases all of the gasoline for me because I mow our yard and enough gasoline to mow other yards is sort of there payment to me.
A great strategy that is also a very strategy is to just make straight rows while mowing. This strategy is very simple but at the same time it also looks very good. Something important to also remember is to maintain the same height of the blade every week you mow. Mowing is very simple as long as you are responsible.
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.
Me pulling up boxes to stock shelves and store use the trash bags so that we can use them at the store.

Here I am watching the equipment to see if there are any problems that I would have to fix.
In this picture I am feeding my cows. Cows need proper nutrition to grow and survive. They start out with a milk replacer which is a powder that you have to stir into water. Next they get calf starter which are pellets. Then they get various textured feeds till they go to the fair.

Stable pens, especially during lambing season, are very important. You need to make sure the wire is nice and tight so they stay in the pen and don

Having a clean pen is the key to clean, happy, and healthy animals. I spot clean my calves pen every other day and clean out the entire pen once a week. Having a clean pen helps to ward disease, and happy cows.
Cleaning the pen is important to you and the hogs. You need to
Make sure the pigs can stay healthy and keep their pen clean. Cleaning the pen keeps parasites and diseases away, it keeps the pigs clean to. Cleaning is very important for your hogs.

In this picture my plants are being watered after being planted. I am using what used to be an old fuel jug that collects run off rain water from the gutter to the tank as my water resource.
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.

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.
