17 Jun Steph: 100% chance of rain
There is a field we cut that is about 20 miles away from our home base in St. Francis, Kan. The thing about this field is that every single year we cut it, it pours. It doesn’t just rain one night either, oh no. It will rain for days. We went out and checked fields this morning and realized this field was the one closest to cutting. It was late afternoon when we got moved over there but guess what was looming over us the whole trip there? Dark, dark thunder heads. Wonderful. Let’s just say our fun was short-lived.
The yields were in the 40s so nothing like yesterday but still good for not getting any rain. Till we show up that is.
They color coordinated today! From left to right: Craig, our farmer Randy (AKA: pie man, always has pie in his pickup and sometimes in his pocket), and Dad
The calm before the storm in our ‘unlucky’ field. A few years ago, we had a final drive go out in our combine while cutting this field.
Getting one last round in before escaping.
Parked and ready to head home before the storm lets loose.

Yes, it would make you wonder if something or someone does not want that field cut. ha
I see our names did not have capital letters,so changed them.
Nice day here. no rain since Saturday morning. About an inch.
Glad you got done before the storm hit. Sharon

very nice pictures and information about whats going on in the wheat fields. its been my dream to go out there , i live in illinois. born on a farm and then farmed till the mid-eighties when we had to sell out and move on. my dream finally came true at my age of 64. i contacted darrel kuhn from kuhn harvesting and he agreed to put me for a month in montana starting the end of july. i thank god for blessing me at this time in my life and i thank darrel for giving me this opportunity in my life.
