Chase, Kansas - It's amazing how fast you lose all track of time and days of the week while on harvest! I often question myself what day of the week it is. So, when someone asks a question that involves a day, I'm like, "Ummmm...let me think. What day is today? I think it was on Monday. No, maybe it was Tuesday. Wait...Oh, dang! I have no idea what day it was." And I've only been on harvest time since Sunday.

We arrived with our final load on Saturday evening about 8:30 p.m. We

Kinsley, Kansas – The wind had blown for days and there was rain in the forecast.  We harvested wheat up until it started raining.  Luckily, we got the field done and got the combines parked for the night and then the wind hit.  Soon after, it started raining.

I had been cutting wheat all day and the sky kept getting darker as the thunderstorms kept approaching.  I had been checking the radar on my phone often and the storms blew up all around us.  I was expecting to get rained out much sooner.  We

Kinsley, Kansas - We have been lucky enough to have wheat to cut and harvest weather lately.  We’ve also had south winds 20 to 35 mph for several consecutive days which has allowed us to start earlier in the mornings and cut later into the evenings too.  The wheat has been yielding 45 to 55 bushels per acre with 61 lbs test weights.  The wind singing Dixie everyday has helped us along.  I figure the wind will blow until it rains.  We have yet to get rained out this harvest but there is rain in the

We have been cutting just a few miles inside the Colorado border in the south east corner of the state. We don’t have any official

South Central KS - We moved through Texas in record time because it was our first year without any sort of rain delay, and, as we have said before, wheat acres were down due to weather conditions.  Our next stop was Custer County, Oklahoma.  Around the Clinton area, things are very dry.  Our farmer told us that they are struggling to get their cotton out of the ground due to the drought. It has been a tough few years in that area.  The last several have had too much rain and now they’re fighting drought.  They
