09 Aug Update from Montana
Cut Bank, Montana: Upon visiting with Mark this morning, I learned he and the crew have completed about a quarter of the job in Montana. He feels fortunate to have been able to make some progress as they’ve been fighting wet wheat. They received rain yesterday night so that has put a stop to things again. The crew is catching up on laundry and contemplating another visit to Glacier National Park. Prior to the current stand still, the wheat was yielding 70-80 bushels per acre where the crops hadn’t received hail.
Below are some photos Mark captured of the Montana wheat harvest. Aren’t those large, rolling fields beautiful?
