01 Aug Megan: Hemingford Harvest
Harvest at home continues to be busy as we have been working very long hours to knock out acre after acre of wheat. Much of the wheat is already cut out in the Hemingford area but a small amount still remains. It is certainly the tail end of harvest but we continue to push to get us caught up. For the time being all three of our combines are split up at the moment as we try to finish up all of our different jobs. It is stressful to have everyone scattered throughout the area but we hope to have two of the combines reunite today so we can get back on track.
A view from the tractor and grain cart after it started raining. The combines quickly unloaded on the grain cart since it can be tarped to keep the grain dry. We moved the grain cart to the edge of the field so we would not have to deal with mud in the morning.
