29 Jul Z Crew: Winding Down in Colorado
Limon, Colorado: The monsoon season has set in and as of today, the Z Crew is sitting on wet wheat. If we could get in the field, with less than 400 acres to go outside of Limon, Colorado, the big trip to Montana isn’t too far away.
Although we’re upon our last acres of wheat, Callie and I have been staying busy. Monday, I took a trip to Denver to see a Rockies game. Wednesday, Callie and I drove to Cheyenne Frontier Days to see Luke Bryan perform in the pouring rain.
Mom and Dad have been in the field for the last week working to dwindle the acres they have here in Colorado. Now working on the last field, it’s seemed like all it wants to do is rain on us! The wheat has had a good test weight with over 60 pounds, yields from 10 to 30 and about a 20 bushel average.
We hope to wrap up here over this week. Out next stop on the map is Denton, Montana to cut winter wheat. Callie, who starts school August 15th, and I are looking at heading back to Nebraska within the next week or two. I can’t believe how fast this summer has flown by.
