The GriggsDakota blog was originally started by FarmHand Kirsti in the Spring of 2009. The original purpose was to provide information to employees of AdFarm about farming practices and seasonal progress on 80 crop acres that AdFarm employees buy shares on to expand their understanding of farming. This original purpose is ever near and dear to our hearts. We do frequent updates through the season and hope many AdFarmers have learned a thing or two over the years. Farmer Fred and the gang appreciate the AdFarmers and we were happy to report a good harvest on your acres in 2010.


Witches bring smiles and dressing up as goblins brings children delight. Halloween is possibly the most exciting day of the year for children as all the celebration is packed into the hours from dark to bedtime. It's always a favorite holiday in GriggsDakota, especially is the harvest is complete.

The October Farmer Fred Award is presented to:
How To: Disposable Treat Bags originally published on October 29, 2010.



 There have been witches hanging around GriggsDakota.
Above is our favorite Halloween treat. A disposable glove stuffed with candy. They are simple to make. Here I have pushed a sucker into each glove finger. Filling each finger gives the hand personality. Use anything that fits easily into them and would make a good treat. Today I filled the palm with candies, but a juice box fits here, as well. Close it with a rubber band or ribbon. We have made hundreds of these over the years. 
Tomorrow is Field Man Joe's Birthday. His friends still remember this treat that we made every year to celebrate his special day with a Halloween theme.    
 There will soon be vampires and perhaps a Ninja turtle joining the witches in the area.
 I expect to see a few ghosts from the seventies on the prowl.
Be vigilant. Sometimes the monsters are too excited to be careful. 
Happy Halloween from the scary folks at GriggsDakota.
