19 Jul Jada: The Z girls go green for a night
The other day, Jenna and her sisters Taylor and Callie took a trip out to the field with my dad and I while we delivered supper. Jenna got the “Green Tour”. For her it was a day of firsts as my dad put her to work driving our machinery. She drove a John Deere combine for the first time, one of our semis and managed to get out of running the grain cart due to time constraints. It was fun having the Z’s in our field and I look forward to running some red! 🙂

Taylor and Callie meet some of our crew- Euan and Robert- and relax with me while Jenna does all the work!
Jenna switches off with Roly so she can make a trip to the elevator.

Looking somewhat calm from the driver’s seat, Jenna drives one of our auto shift semis. Piece of cake, right Jenna?!

The grain cart goes to dump. Just south of Limon, Colo., farmers didn’t receive as much rain as north of town. This particular field averaged in the high 20s to 30 bushels to the acre.
