30 Jul Steph: Waitin’ on Wheat
Progress for Osowski Ag Service has been brought to a halt by green wheat. We have an irrigated circle and one field north of town that we are anxiously waiting on. Usually these types of things happen right when we get our groove going. Days are all meshed together because we all do the same thing each day anyway. This may sound boring to some, but we love times like that. Hemingford has the perfect harvest feel to it, in my opinion; lines at the elevator, dust flying in the distance, truck drivers getting out and chatting with one another while they wait in line, service trucks cruising main street. There really is nothing better than the feeling of harvest in the air.
While we were servicing equipment yesterday, Brandon had a fun thing happen to him. A neighboring farmer drove up and was asking questions about his own machine, a CR9065. Brandon is our tech guru and is becoming quite the little mechanic, I must say, so he knows quite a bit. The neighboring farmer was having some issues with his machine and wanted to take Brandon to check and see if he could get it figured out. Turns out, Brandon was able to tweak a few things on the screen in the combine car, tighten a few belts, and all was well! We have been calling this Brandon’s first service call, and he couldn’t be more proud of himself. And neither can we!
Harvest Tip: Only let one person give you directions at a time.
You might be a harvester if…people don’t recognize you when you’re not in your work clothes.
A little glimpse into the past.
This is what happens when you give Brandon the camera…what a goofball.
Gotta love replacing sickle blades!
We love our automatic socket wrench.
Petey, all snuggled in to pit 3.
More unloading business.
A little throwback to when we spent the day in Estes Park.
Another throwback to when we weathered the storm last week. This photo was taken by a friend of ours that visited the field that is allowing me to share it with you!
