Wheat Harvest 2013

Pictures of harvest this year will be limited. I’m taking this heat advisory to heart. I did have to venture out to help move fields. (That always needs an extra driver unless they want to have to drive the tractor all the way home.)

Here are a few pictures I grabbed when we went on our little errand. Unfortunately, they show the small part of the field with weeds; but in all reality it’s hard to find a wheat field out here without weeds in it. I just blame it on the drought, but I don’t really know. You’ll have to trust me that most of this field is just golden wheat.

Turning around. This wheat has already been cut.

Tractor in Wheat Harvest

This is what the tractor does a lot of in wheat harvest. It’s a great job to have if you have a good book to read, especially in years when the wheat isn’t yielding well.

Waiting for the combine to move so we can go hang out in the tractor.

It is noteworthy that wheat harvest this year is several weeks later than wheat harvest last year.
