Harvest Update

I finally got Blogger and Snapfish (where I store our photos) to work simultaneously so I could put up a new post!

The guys finished up soybean harvest (hallelujah!) and have moved on to corn. It is wet but running pretty well considering the wet year we've had.

These were just some pictures I snapped with my phone when the crew was combining just southwest of town last week.

I caught a beautiful sunset on my way back from the field the other night.

Someone thought the guys' supper containers needed an extra special touch last night.

Here they are all ready to go.

Don't most farmers like peace signs and hearts? :) My favorite is the one that says "I love tractors." Ha.

It was cold and windy yesterday, but the guys work through it all. Even our little farmers braved the icky weather so they could go ride with Daddy.

Soybean Harvest

This photo was taken last night before the rain hit. The guys were hoping to finish up soybeans this week but it started raining last night and has been raining on and off all day (and is still coming down now). I haven't checked the rain gauge yet, but I am guessing we are maybe around 2" so far.

I also have lots more pictures and some video footage of the drain tiling I posted about last month. I didn't give any info or details in that last post, but I sure learned a lot out there and will write up a post soon.
