High Plains Journal All Aboard Wheat Harvest


Late Nights and Early Mornings

Elk City, Ok — For the past ten days, we have been extremely busy. We started wheat harvest! As many of you have read, this lifestyle can be a lot of hot days and many tiring hours. Most of these nights Dan, Liz, and I are in the field until 11-11:30pm before we head home for a quick snack and a shower, then off the bed to arise the next morning by at least 7am. These short nights and long days are tiring, but it is all apart of what we do. We need to do it to support ourselves and the bigger picture of feeding people all around us. In these pictures we are doing some last minute checks and are headed out the driveway to our first stop 20 miles east of us around Burns Flat, Oklahoma. We started cutting June 9th, I believe. It has slipped my mind! Haha!

All in convoy. First its Dan in one combine, then mom with the double header trailer, Liz with the tractor and cart pulling our service truck, then me in the second combine.

Life isn’t without its struggles!

We got everything put back together and were on the road in no time.

The first field for Misener Family Harvesters! We have been cutting non-stop since.

Be safe and God bless!

    • Always a good feeling when there’s work to be done. It can be stressful at times, but what about life cannot be stressful? All we can do is our best, and God will do the rest.
