Our Wheat Harvest Story & HarvestHER

Combine case ih 6088Once again this year I was invited to share our harvest story on the HarvestHer website. To be honest I wasn’t going to and then after reading through some of the posts I decided too.  Sometimes I feel like I am not really a “farm wife” which is really silly because I am.  Farm Wife

I think it is because my mental picture of a “farm wife” is one that is physically working on the farm  most of the time.  This stems from the upbringing I had I suppose, my mother was a very physical worker.  So I threw those thoughts out the window and jumped on board!

So below I will continue to add when I send in my update every day or two.  This way you can read along by going to the HarvestHer website, and be sure to like their Facebook page or subscribe to receive notices.  There are some very interesting stories from all over on there!

Alittle This, Alittle of That

During April, May, June there is a variety of crops planted.  We have already started with corn and last week dabbled with grain sorghum (milo).  While writing this post the other day my farmer husband was planting soybeans.  In fact, he planted soybeans from about 5:00 p.m. one night until 1:00 a.m. , then headed back out to the field the next morning about 9:30 a.m.

To plant the soybeans we use our John Deere grain drill/air seeder.

The picture below shows him attaching the hydraulic hoses from the drill to the the tractor.  He will operate the drill/air seeder from inside the tractor.

The grain drill is ready to head to the field! This was taken about 45 minutes after we got back from a weekend away! 🙂 Had to get the soybeans in before the rain came through!
