HARVEST has Commenced

Yesterday we got the beans harvested. At about eleven it was dry enough to get started. The guys worked here until about eight thirty.
One swathe down, lots more to go.

Today the sky is not so blue. It was dark when they go done so the picture taking had to wait until today. What we need is sunshine and heat to dry down and harvest our crops.

It is nice to have harvest under way. Chuck does our harvest work. He does his own harvesting, our harvesting, and two other farmers. None of us have enough acres on our own to warrant new equipment. The combines today are pure luxury compared to what we had 30 years ago.

I love the heartland and all the work that goes into a harvest. Do you celebrate at the end of the harvest?
