The end of  the farming season, that is.   There are still many many things that need done, but the big jobs are finished.

This fall seemed especially busy.  The Milo was ready to cut while we were still planting wheat.  There just was simply not enough equipment and “manpower” to do both at the same time.  Doug was run ragged.  But now, due to a long dry fall (I guess no rain in a month is good for something.) we have finished planting and cutting.  It is so very seldom that we are finished before the middle of November.   We are so excited to enjoy the fall at a more leisurely pace!!   The wheat looks beautiful and the Milo yielded well.  All the time, God is good!

    After two years of retirement, I am back at work, running the scale house at the family farm. I’m loving it.

    Congrats on getting the planting and harvest done early this year! I hope you can relax a bit now. And maybe get some rain, too!

      Thank you! I thought that was fun. And my son in law didn’t run over me while I was taking the photo!

    Getting the crops harvested is always a huge relief! We are hoping for more long drying days, since we have now started corn harvest! It’s so exciting to be in the last harvest of the season!

    You guys sure do have some BIG equipment. I am proud to have you all as friends. Its neat the way you farm. I am almost as tired as all of you from just seeing what you have done and knowing what it takes to get it that way!

      Thank you so much for this Ralph. We are humbled that you call us your friends. We certainly don’t stand out here with our equipment. This is big country and it takes a lot to make a living here. It is a big job. Needless to say, we don’t go out to dinner and a movie very often, but we love our farm. I admire your commitment to keeping the past alive. Agriculture is hard work, no matter how you go about it! Let’s all keep up the good work.
