30 Jun Jenna: Finishing in Manter
Harvest is wrapping up here in Manter, Kan. On Sunday, Blake and the Krumbach’s hired men moved north to their next stop. To finish here, we have Dad, Bruce and Lee driving truck; Mom, Anna and Katie driving combine; and me in the grain cart. (Talk about girl power! :] )
For a while today we were cutting white wheat that weighed about 66 pounds – it was crazy! We basically finished cutting tonight; there’s just a small chunk left to finish in the morning.
We found out yesterday that our next “for sure” job won’t be ready until around July 15th. So, in the mean time, we’re hoping to pick up a couple of extra jobs. We have something lined up in Garden City, Kan., so that’s where we’re headed next…maybe tomorrow? It’s not too far from here, so it will be a quick trip.
This has been a really long week. It feels like forever ago that we were in Seiling. Weird.
