20 Aug Jada: Hoffman Harvesting moves to Regent
Part of our crew including me made the move to Regent, North Dakota to begin our harvest here. Unfortunately we received rain while on the road. A glimpse of the wheat from the road shows the wheat doesn’t look ready. Talk with other harvesters confirms that a lot of the wheat is not quite ready but some were in the fields prior to the rainfall cutting some fields that were ready early. However, a lot of the wheat is just turning.
Leon met with our farmer today to check things out and see if any of our fields look ready to test. In the meantime, the rest of the crew remains in Bowdle to finish up our wheat harvest there. Yesterday was the first time I have been able to take a video of loading. Usually we are loading at night or I am at the campground with Callum getting the campers loaded and ready to go. Check out these videos for some of the action that went on around our farm in Bowdle yesterday morning.
