Step Two of Crimson Clover Harvest

19 Jun

We have started combining the Crimson clover for this year. With this warm weather we have been having, it only took 6 days to dry the crop enough to start harvesting.  

Since the crop is so early this year, about 10 days ahead of last year, our regular crew of drivers is at their tractor safety school this week. So the job has gone to Matt and I for the time being.  
 Matt in the yellow and me in the green. I also had a great helper to pass the day, my niece Lila came for a ride! 

 In her very practical combining outfit of course! Happy Friday everyone and happy harvesting farmers!

    When I farmed in Rycroft AB.. we grew red clover & tetraplode alsike clover, used it as a plow down crop & also for seed. Honey bees are a must tor good seed production. Do you have your own seed cleaning plant or take if to a commerical plant ?What is the price of crimmson this year and what is the yield. The Peace River country of AB. & BC. is the grass seed capital of Canada. My family & cousins have farmed & are still going since 1913.

    Happy harvesting! Our guys should be out in the wheat fields here in the next two weeks – early for us here, but with the drought we had wheat turning in May.
