10 Jul Jada: A Goodland harvest update and an important announcement
Hail damage and moisture have been matters of the heart for Hoffman Harvesting as we continue to harvest in the Goodland area. While meager sprinkles haven’t shut us down for long, they have caused us to be more wary of our moisture monitors.
Machines parked but ready to run!
Hoffman Harvesting has missed out on several potential thunder storms, but clouds continue to linger above us causing shorter harvest days. This is due to cooler temperatures and less sun to dry the wheat out. Hail has also affected the yields and is evident in most fields we have cut in the area. While some have faired better than others, one can’t help to think what the yields could have been in each and every one of them.
Harvest nights have been cut short but potential storms have produced picturesque skies.
We interrupt this message for a brief but important announcement………………
Someone on the Hoffman Harvesting crew is 5 today.
Yes, Alex, five today! (Fraser and Alex eating their evening meal harvest style.)
Happy Birthday, Kaidence……. You are truly Hoffman Harvesting’s sunshine!
I think she’s saying, “Peace, we’re out!”
