26 Jun Refill the Glass
Lyons, Kan. – I want to start this off with a protein reading of 13. I have many friends from home as well as some readers that have inquired about this specific reading so I was excited to see it was included on my scale ticket this afternoon. The suspense can end!
We are about to wrap up but this area is not quite ready to let us go. We moved to our last field today and just as we were getting a good rhythm going, the wind picked up and the clouds rolled in. The elevator was closed so we were going to have to quit for the night anyway so let’s hope it doesn’t rain enough to shut us down for too long. The yields are between 50 and 60 bushels with test weights consistent around 60 pounds. The lines at the elevator got a bit outrageous today. This part of harvest has a tendency to do that because elevators are getting full or the pits decide to fall apart in order to give themselves a break from the harvest chaos.
Something you may not know about South Africans is that they love to barbecue. Conveniently, I love to eat barbecued food so this works out very well for me. Peter can grill anything and it’s spectacular. The only catch is you can’t really ask for a specific sauce he uses ever again because the recipe he follows is “dump whatever into a bowl and see how it turns out.”
Bread Count – 1,823,378.47 loaves
