My brother in law, Bruce, put this picture on his Facebook page on Monday. I did not realize it was Agriculture Week but I sure am thankful for hardworking farmers who are responsible for the food we so casually take from the grocery store shelves!!
Here is a picture of Bruce. He works full time as a deputy sheriff and farms in his spare time. Of course that means before he goes to work, when he gets home from work and on the weekends. I am so glad that Bruce enjoys farming as he kept our family farm going when my father became sick and became bedridden. Since Daddy's death, Bruce has been the number one farmer on the farm.
I am thankful that I grew up on a small farm. I learned early on that you do not eat if you do not work! As you purchase your groceries this week, remember that without farmers, the store shelves would be empty!
