How Much I Care

For Valentine’s Day, Bruce Andersland sculpted a heart for his wife. Andersland, who owns a farm near Albert Lea, Minn., made the tribute for his wife, Beth, after sketching out the design on a sheet of paper. He then used his tractor and manure spreader to implement the half-mile-wide shape with an arrow piercing it on a snow-covered field. It’s only recognizable by air, and was made from their cattle’s manure. “He thinks of cute things to do once in a while, so I was a little surprised,” Beth said when shown an aerial photo of her Valentine. She’s not bothered that it’s made of manure. “That’s just part of farm life. Doing something fun and creative with it makes farming fun.” (RC/Albert Lea Tribune) ...Just like marriage!
