Things are just getting started with the harvest out at Dad's and my Uncle's farms. I've started carrying around my digital camera quite a bit, and getting some pics of various thnigs we've been up to.
I know there are some folks here who have farmed or are interested in farming. So I wondered if you'd like to see a sort of "picture blog" of the harvest as it goes along.
I don't know that I could post something EVERY day. But I'm sure I could update it several times a week. I could keep it going until we were done, or interest in the thread waned.
Here are a few examples
There's a lot of work that goes into getting the equipment ready before you go to the field. Here's a shot of work on the corn head. For some reason, this ended up being like a state road crew job - More people watching than working. (-:
This shot is Dad pulling into a soybean field for the first time. I don't know why he decided to start on beans first.
His combine is REALLY old - It's an MF510 made around 1970 or so.
Last night we finally got a cornfield opened up at my Uncle's place. This is a shot of Carl pulling the first loaded wagons over to the dump pit.
I hope to sneak out of work a little early today and see what's going on again. If y'all are interested in this I'll keep it going.
