Heros

Some exciting events happend at the farm this past week, although not with the tiny house.

A crop duster was taking off nearby and shortly after take-off had engine trouble and crashed in a nearby field. My in-laws immediately went to investigate and found the plane upside down in a rice field. The engine was snapped off and flipped backwards.

My father-in-law made his way through the water and mud and found the pilot alive and kicking, but stuck inside with the doors pinned shut by mud. He helped pop a window out and helped the pilot move away from the plane. Gas was leaking and it had a full load of fertilizer.

The pilot is doing well, partially thanks to Dick and Sherry’s quick action!

Crop duster is back, but it’s all good

Last summer a crop duster sprayed (or seeded) the neighbors land and flew really low over the tiny free house. Yesterday a crop duster sprayed the farm with some kind of organic algae based pest control (DE solution?). The farmer that works the land (and has been for decades) keeps the land certified organic and only uses safe stuff. My wife’s aunt, who lives at the family farm with my inlaws, took this great photo of the plane flying low over the tiny house. Thanks again Sandy!
