23 Jul Z Crew: Meals in the Field (or machine sheds)
The farmer and crew we’re now working with is from the Simla, Colorado area. Very involved in the community and school, they are one of the friendliest groups of people I’ve ever had the blessing of meeting. In the last few days I’ve learned how to fry chicken, spent a great amount of time with all of the grandkids, and spent probably too much time in a John Deere tractor and combine!
I’ve loved every second I’ve spent out here in Colorado. Each evening when the meal has been prepared by the wives and little helpers, the combines are shut down and it’s not only harvest time, it’s family time. It feels as though family members from all around come out to see the harvest show. I don’t think I’ve ever fully realized how much involvement it takes from an entire family to make harvest time run smoothly.
