21 Jul Jada: Harvest moves to Roscoe area
Today we moved on our farmer’s land in the Loyalton, SD area. If things go good, we’ll be moving home to harvest our own wheat. Unusually high humidity (around at 50%) and overcast skies have made the workdays shorter. However, it will not rain. We have received a couple sprinkles but nothing to satisfy our thirsty fall crops which get drier each day with the high temperatures we have been experiencing. We continue to harvest spring wheat which is averaging in the 50’s. Here are some photos of us in action.
With high humidity and cloud cover, our nights have been cut short due to the wheat getting tough earlier.
Kaidence gets comfortable in the combine.
Montana follows suit and gets comfortable in his combine.

The guys prepare to finish another field.
