So the rainy weather has gotten in the way of soybean harvest, but the past weekend provided some good days to get some harvesting and wheat planting completed. Stephanie gave me these pictures to show how she spent her weekend. This view of the combine cutting 30" row beans shows that the border rows are cut first and then the middle four rows are harvested for yield determination. We always remove border rows no mater the row spacing or crop being harvested.
Round and round they go. Here is Stephanie's view from the scaled grain cart following Tim in the combine. And who is that in the tractor? Why it's our dedicated CEO Troy. He was glad for the opportunity to step in and help on the weekend. He is often seen hiding in the bushes looking longingly at the operation of all the field equipment that he has bought for us. So occasionally it is good to let him take the wheel.
Impending sunset makes for a nice view of finishing up a test on Farm 5.
Sadly the rain has returned on Monday and Tuesday. But it's good for the wheat. (Trying to look on the bright side of the gloomy day.)
