31 May Emma:Workin’ hard
It’s been few days since we’ve arrived in Gotebo, Okla., and although we’ve run our normal acres through our five machines, things seem slow. There’s just something about a “normal” harvest that seems to go faster when you see those semi’s running up and down the roads with a cloud of dust behind them. No such luck this year. The wheat is averaging 15-20 bushel/acre, resulting in a couple semi loads each quarter of wheat we do. I wouldn’t say this is bad considering the year we’ve been handed.
Some wheat is better than no wheat.
Here’s a few pics showing you what we’ve been seeing these past couple days.
(L to R) David, Katie, Mom, Martha, Lauren, Elizabeth, Evie, and Clara.
Almost time to call it a day.
Saw these little guys when we arrived in Gotebo. 🙂
Not sure if they’re the fightin’ kind, but they were pretty little.
Be safe and God bless!
