20 Jul Jada: Leaving Limon
Last night we finished up with harvest in the Limon/ Genoa area. Since it was a bit sooner than anticipated, I am sad our run is already over in Colorado.
We also thought there would be a break between our jobs in South Dakota and Limon, but this is not the case. Work in Midland had us rushing to get loaded and on the road. It feels like a normal harvest having to rush somewhere!
Most of the crew and the equipment moved today. I however stayed in Limon and plan to hit the road tomorrow with my parents. They headed to Colorado to help us move back to South Dakota. Having them join us on the harvest trail is great! They were also happy to visit will old friends and of course, see Kaidence. They said she’s changed since May 13, when they last saw her.
Here are some photos of our last day harvesting in Colorado.
Leon leads the guys through the field.
The combines cut away from me with a new sight in the Limon skyline- wind turbines. A wind farm was built in the Limon area. …. Around 130 (don’t quote me on this number) stand north of town.
Kaidence and I hang out with Limon friends Mikaela Taylor and Lindsey Blackwelder (not pictured). We visited their farm in Karval and saw a pigs, cats, goats, and cows. Kaidence was in heaven!
A rare moment. Everyone helps load the camper. James takes blocks to the pickup. We like to keep a lot of blocks on hand- not just for the jacks but also for leveling the camper and blocking tires so they don’t roll. You never know what size you’ll need.
Oak and Roly load our beloved grill which travels on the Ford.
Moses carries a load to the pickup.
What I am digging today…. Limon’s windfarm. I must say I am an advocate for wind energy. Why not harvest this free resource!?
