30 Jul Montana
Hardin, Montana—The crew with Mark has finished up in Nebraska and moved into Big Sky Country—Montana. They have been cutting for several days but were out of the field yesterday due to rain. Late last week, Mark reported that he was seeing yields in the 50s. Test weights were in the 62 pounds per acre range. He says that it appears like the “mountains” received a few more rains than the flatlands in the area.
Pieter G. sent in this photo Mark and him “fetching” the wheat in Nebraska. One of the fun things about having crew members from other regions or parts of the world is hearing how others use the English language. Sometimes it may be different than what we’re accustomed to!
The photos above are from Mark at our current Montana location. He told me to take note of the grade of the field. It’s hard for the picture to do justice to the steepness.
Jill just sent in these beautiful shots this morning from Montana.
