Its Been a Month

Since I started harvest I mean. And it might be over. Light rain this morning and it continues. Forecast is for more most of the week and the S word is even mentioned. I'm lucky to be as far along as I am , having only 120 acres of flax still standing. Ready or not, I don't know as I have not had a chance to check it lately. I suspect there will still be enough green (flax or weeds) in it that I can't cut and pickup the same day but who knows. Laying a swath now with more rain, or worse, forecast is not a good plan. Swaths take a long time to dry once we are into October.
I took this picture a few days ago unloading wheat into the truck. Have to admit we had some very nice harvest weather while waiting for the grain to dry. Lucky I did not wait for it.


  1. I hope you can get it in before the snow flies. I've seen it turn cold and wet for so long that the farmers ended up brush-hogging their corn rather than picking it.

  2. We have only a few acres of sudan grass left to harvest. It poured last night but we have sun this morning. I am really worried about our income. I came come to dread the fall. It used to be a relief but now it just reminds me that I'm running out of time to make up in custom work, what we lost on our crops... Now I have a job... which makes it worse!

  3. Thanks Budd. That old Loadstar has been with us since 1984. It is old and slow but gets the job done.
