Let’s face it, the Fourth of July isn’t exactly a day off for farmers. Chores still need to get done — like feeding the cattle or getting the hay fields cut and baled — and while we’re probably more patriotic than the average city-dweller, our style of patriotism shines through in hard work and honest living. In fact, while I love paying tribute to our nation’s independence, I also spend most of the evening worried about how the neighbor’s fireworks are going to affect my animals. So it’s far from a “relaxing” kind of holiday.
And did I mention that I like to get stuff done? Well, I do, and the local Tractor Supply or Ace Hardware is still going to be open that day, and there’s sure to be a ton of stuff on sale for the Fourth (and, if you’re a veteran or active duty, Tractor Supply is giving an extra 15 percent off on Independence Day — just be sure to bring proof of your service to our country.). Need some new tools or coolers or electrical and plumbing supplies? Odds are, a lot of those kinds of things will be discounted in the name of the Red, White, and Blue.
If I were planning ahead, I’m sure I could have targeted some Amazon Prime deliveries to show up at my doorstep in time for the Fourth, too. (To my knowledge, Amazon doesn’t sell sheets of plywood or 16-foot rough-cut boards, so definitely looking local for a lot of things.)
