Family Fun

Today was another beautiful day. It started out with a little rain and very cool. I seeded several varieties of tomatoes, cabbage and cauliflower. About nine this morning we headed to my son's home in Crown Point, Indiana with my dad to meet the rest of my family. It was a very nice day with the family celebrating my youngest grandson's birthday. He turned two on the thirtieth. He greeted us with silly knock knock jokes. He is growing up fast. Kristin, our daughter in law, prepared a nice lunch and we watched the NASCAR race on TV. It was a nice day visiting with other family members from both sides of the family. 

Tomorrow, if the weather is good and the ground is dry enough, we will continue to plant onions and garlic in the field. I have some transplanting to complete and I think my dad will be working on some of our maintenance items. We are going to build a potato and asparagus planter. He is looking for the metal he needs to fabricate a surrey to pull behind the middle buster. There will be a rack for the roots or tubers and a seat for a person to ride on behind the tractor. I am sure it will work out. Now its time for supper and a little relaxation as this week is going to be busy. God bless you and have a great week!


Very Busy Yet Enjoyable Day

Today was a little different than most days around the farm. I was up early as normal, but only to check on things and then it was off with my sister and family to move all the stuff from my parent's summer home in central Illinois. The property was sold and all of our belongings needed to be moved out. Dad and mom rented a U-Haul Truck to haul everything back to the farm. It was fun working together with most of the family loading the truck and cleaning the house. There was a little tension in the air, but no really big problems. I drove the truck back to Hinckley this evening and my mom rode back with me. 

Dad arrived back to the farm tonight from his winter vacation and he thought everything looked pretty good. Andy and I surprised him with the new wagon we built this winter. I think he really liked it. I think it looks pretty good and it will work great for hauling our produce out of the field. It was a long day and tomorrow we have to get the truck unloaded and back to the rental place. I have more to seed and a bit of transplanting to complete. Sunday is my grandson's birthday party in Indiana, however if the weather is real hot, I may not be able to attend. Someone has to be here to maintain the plants in the greenhouses. I really hope I can go and enjoy the day with the rest of the family, but sometimes a farmer has to tend to his crop. May God richly bless each of you! Good night!


Another Year of Bountiful Blessings

Even though the business started in 2011, Bountiful Blessings brings a lot of experience to the table. The Wielert family has been involved in agriculture and horticulture for four generations. Ranging from cattle production, greenhouse operation and vegetable farming over the years, the Wielerts have been described by friends and neighbors as quality growers. Located five miles north of Hinckley, Illinois on McGirr Road, Wielert's Bountiful Blessings Farm Produce is situated on some of Illinois' most bountiful farm land. In the spring of 2011, after being prompted by his father, Jeff Wielert opened Bountiful Blessings Farm Produce to provide locally produced food in the local market. Jeff's parents, Allan and Bette Wielert help him to produce a top quality vegetable crop available on the farm and at other local sites. Their goal is to bring a healthy, delicious product to your table at an affordable price.

In 2012, Bountiful Blessings will be expanding to meet the needs of the local area. With over 10 acres of sweet corn and 10 acres of vegetables and pumpkins, Bountiful Blessings will continue to offer a top quality food product at affordable prices. Be sure to visit the farm or one of their stands this spring!
