Hi. I'm Henry the Sock Monkey. Welcome to the farm!
So, last week, Henry had a visitor. Flat Stanley flew all the way to Snead, Alabama from Kansas!
What's the first thing everyone wants to do when they go to a farm? Ride in a tractor of course! Henry says safety first! and buckled in Flat Stanley. He even gave him a book to sit on.
Henry should have kept the book for himself because he can't quite reach the steering wheel.
Since it is March and there isn't much growing on the farm, Henry decided to show Flat Stanley some of our equipment.
He explained that this machine was a cotton picker, used to harvest cotton in the Fall. Peanuts, soybeans, and corn are also grown on the farm.
Henry also took Flat Stanley to see our chicken houses. There are 4 chicken houses. Each house has around 33,000 chickens!
Flat Stanley was scared when he went inside the chicken houses and asked Henry to hold him. Maybe Flat Stanley shouldn't have asked Henry to pass the honey mustard.
After leaving the chicken houses, Henry showed Flat Stanley a giant pile of sawdust. And Flat Stanley just had to dive in. After rescuing Flat Stanley, Henry explained that the sawdust is what the chickens walk on inside the chicken houses.
Flat Stanley couldn't resist a photo opportunity and a chance to "tiptoe through the tulips!"
Henry would like to thank Flat Stanley for hanging around the farm with him today!
Uh oh. Did Henry mention it was a windy day? Come back Flat Stanley!
