May has come to an end and flown by as usually the case for us. We have been blessed with timely rains and good conditions. Some of the areas not so far from us have not been so fortunate. They have been hit by heavy rains and strong winds. The crops that are planted are coming up nice. The combines are being prepped for travel during any time we are not in the field. Our first job in Oklahoma was hailed out recently, resulting in a total loss. We will be starting in Ness City, Kansas in June.
Our beans were rolled with the rock roller this week. Rolling the ground pushes the rocks down which is necessary for harvest. When the beans are harvested, the combine header is on the ground. Rolling helps prevent any rocks from entering the combine through the feeder house on the front. Rock ingestion can cause serious damages internally to the equipment.
Farmer Brown was able to get some spraying done. We had to bring him fuel one evening while the sun was setting. It was a gorgeous night!
Our spring wheat during a sunrise. Our yard is full of various blooms and fresh greenery this week! Here are some of them below.
We’ll be done planting soon and heading out. In the meantime, we are busy getting ready and finishing up our to do list. Our crew is excited to get started harvesting!
