09 Aug Jada: All in a days “to do” list
When you are busy harvesting, maintenance jobs that can be held off get added to a rainy day list. Today was the day to get to the list. Everyone was on our farmer’s farm working on our to do list- including Kaidence who was lured out there on the promise to see cats.
Around 4 p.m. we tested the wheat and took a sample to the elevator. The sample was around 13 % moisture but our stint harvesting was short lived. By the time I arrived with supper, we had to shut down as the moisture was too high. Tomorrow we hope to get in the field for a more normal day of harvest. Here are some photos of the chores completed today.
Bux opens the hood on a truck so we can service it.
