Emma: Waitin’ On Rain and Checking Out Wheat

Emma_thumbnailThe rain has yet to subside near Gregory, South Dakota. It seems like the rain is on a schedule. Every morning around 4 a.m. it starts to storm, rains for about four hours, then the sunshine comes out. Right around 5 p.m., we have our hopes high that the oats have dried out enough to harvest the next afternoon, but like clockwork the rain comes again crushing our hopes of harvest. However, my hopes will not be crushed completely. I know the rain will stop eventually even if it is just long enough to finish what we have left. On the bright side, the rain is a good thing for the fall crops.

Since it was raining, we took a trip to our next stop on the harvest trail near Watertown, SD to see what the wheat looks like. It  is looking great. In fact, it will probably be the best wheat Misener Family Harvesters have seen all year. Hopefully we will get some sunshine up there as well to make it dry enough to harvest, but after we are finished in Gregory.

Emma: leslie and his 'cars'
In Watertown, SD at a car repair shop sits this awesome pair. Leslie could hardly contain himself from all of the excitement he had when he saw them! ‘It’s Mator and Lightning McQueen!’ he said.

Be safe and God bless!
