Garden City, Kan. – Taylor notified me earlier last week that she, Colten (her husband-to-be) and Callie were coming out to see us over the weekend. I sort of held my breath for the first couple of days thinking something might happen and they wouldn't be able to make it. But, made it they did! They arrived at 2:30 a.m. on Saturday. They left home at 6:30—after Taylor got home from work. And, me being the excited mom, I sat up and waited for them. I knew if I went to bed, I wouldn't be able to sleep because I'd be

Claude, TX - Remember my issue with not enough ingredients for the chocolate chip cookies? The recipe was one that I used from the HarvestHER Facebook Recipe Album (Randi Beckley of Beckley Harvesting). They turned out perfect! I baked a small batch to make sure all was good (mostly just to satisfy that chocolate craving I was having) and then I froze the rest. I made them into little "pucks" and froze them individually on a cookie sheet. After they were frozen, I put them in a large baggie for ease of using at a later date. I'm learning a

I think I have shared this recipe every year since my first year at All Aboard Wheat Harvest! It is just so darn good, I HAVE TO SHARE IT! Sorry, I'm not yelling, just excited! I have no idea when this recipe came to be in the Misener family, but it has been around since all of my siblings and parents have been around. I remember my Grandma Alda making it for us kids when we were at her house, and Momma making it for a special treat. The most important thing about this recipe is that it is eaten

Shattuck, Oklahoma—It has been a slow start but we’re in the field! The weather’s dried up and we’ve been in full-blown harvest mode, and it’s crazy how time can get away from you. Over the week Mom and Dad have been able to get roughly 600 acres cut with the help of Adams Harvesting crew stepping in with a second machine and truck. Wheat’s being cut and other than that there’s not a whole lot to report on. The wheat is very short, a result of the drought. Test weight is 50 at best and it’s yielding just terrible.

Garden City, KS: Callie and I FINALLY have arrived on the 2014 wheat harvest run! Sunday, after a quick drive south and a dinner date in Scott City, Kan. with Jenna, we parked outside the trailer house and let out a huge sigh of relief.
After a run to town, nap and unpacking, I sat down to take a test for one of my online classes and Mom and Dad returned from the field. We said our hello's and headed outside to watch a few post-Independence Day fireworks.
This morning Callie and I woke up with droopy eyes and a little confused

Manley, NE/Garden City, KS: Here in Nebraska, Callie and I are recovering from our first 4th of July celebration at home. We both had a fantastic day filled with food, swimming and fireworks. I started my day by baking a cherry pie. Remember when I picked those cherries off of our cherry tree? I used those very cherries to make the best cherry pie in the world. I don't want share the recipe because I'm selfish, but I've decided I must. I think everyone will enjoy this simply delicious pie!
Callie returned on Thursday night from her Future Business Leaders of
