- FARMING METHODS
- Earthworms pile up the organic material into middens and eat it. The earthworm holes allow water and air to move through the soil. The holes go down about four feet. The soil will be sprayed a total of four times with different chemicals.
- His great grandpa settled in a house nearby. When his grandpa got married he moved to Minnesota. After two years they loaded everything onto a train and came back to Illinois. His grandpa bought the farm in 1906. As a boy he would ride his back from a nearby house to his grandparents' house where they would give him cookies. His uncle sold the house eventually. Jim always wanted to build a house in the corner of the property since he wa a boy, and fulfilled that dream when he grew up.
