When the kids were home on Saturday, our friends called and asked if I had beans in the garden. Yes-I did….well they had all t he fixings except for beans so how about a shrimp boil at their house?? YES-YES!! They host a shrimp boil every year and lets just say, it’s one of the highlights of my summer.
Hubby was the only farmer here to tend the farm as his boss was away. Some of the water way and ditch hay had to be bailed and it looked like Hubby wasn’t going to be able to go to the shrimp boil. The kids pitched in and helped so he could get there on time.
Of all the bailing to do, the kids like water way hay bailing best. It’s light and dry so it’s easy to work with. Alfalfa hay is much heavier. Typically the guys use this hay mixed in the ration the cattle eat.
All the work was well worth the reward…SHRIMP BOIL!!
YUM..YUM..and everyone made it on time!!
