21 Jul Jenna: Almost done in Colo.
Limon, Colo. – I’m starting to feel a little antsy here in Limon. It feels like it has taken far too long to get the crop out this year. Between green wheat, wet wheat and the occasional rain shower – harvest has taken more time than it should for us.
We finished one job over the weekend and moved on to our second (and last) job on Saturday. Between last night and this morning, the fields received enough rain to keep us from cutting today. The worst part is that we’re only about 15 acres short of being finished.
Once we get those few acres knocked out, we’ll be done here in Colorado and thinking about getting up to our next stop in Jordan, Mont., which is also our final stop for the summer. I’m trying to figure out how that’s possible – where has the summer gone?
