07 Aug Home Harvest
Hemingford, Neb. – As I mentioned in my previous post, harvest around home is in the final stretch. Our extended family came to our rescue like they do every summer. Roland Harvesting would like to thank everyone in our family for helping out with home harvest and keeping things in line at the farm while we are on the road. Cooking meals, getting fuel, running combines, and trucking are just a few tasks that our family assists with during our busy time of year. Their wonderful help is always greatly appreciated! Here are some more photos from the past couple weeks.
Cousins reunited! Brandon and James stop for a quick picture after unloading the combines near Chadron. James made it home for a couple weekends to help out. It was nice to have one of our own veteran combine operators back in the field!
Those dark clouds on the right proved to be threatening about an hour later. Strong winds, thunder, lightning, heavy rain and even a small funnel cloud formed from that storm. It was pure madness getting out of the face of the storm and booking it back to the farm but the crew was able to steer clear of harms way. Even the field we were cutting managed to miss the damaging hail. What an eventful evening!
