26 Jul Jada: Lazy River Day
So what does a South Dakota harvest crew do when they can’t cut? They go to the river. Hoffman Harvesting is still in Gettysburg and waiting for the green spring to get ready. We received rain while we were harvesting our last 180 acres of winter wheat and were unable to cut it until yesterday. Some of our crew headed to the Black Hills while the rest of us went to the river (weather permitting) to bide our time while waiting on the wet wheat. Below are some photos of us hanging out after a long day on the river. We were hanging out with Sugden Harvesting, Thurman Harvesting and Larry Franke of Franke Harvesting. That evening Rick and Jodi Sugden made us one of their specialty recipes fish fritters. This includes beer batter with hashbrowns, onions, green peppers and Johnny’s seasoning salt mixed together with the fish. It is then fried and served hot. Yummy!

Cloudy, rainy weather has kept us out of the field
