We’re done with summer harvest!!!!

Peas for freezing – Check
Crimson Clover for seed – Check
Perennial Ryegrass for Seed – Check
Wheat for Seed – Check

Combining wheat is always a little more fun than ryegrass I think.  Mostly because you get to cut while you combine.  In perennial ryegrass we have to swath at night, wait a week, then combine the already cut rows that look like this.

We also get to dump on the go, the combine never stops (unless you have a girl like me driving and you have to use the bathroom every hour, sorry dad!)


While in the cab you can look ta see the quality of the wheat that you’re combining by just looking through the window at the rear of the cab.
