Before and After a Little Moisture

2 Oct

Hazelnut harvest is always a harvest that is either super muddy or super dusty…there is no middle ground, usually. Except when we started last week, it has rained a little and there was just enough moisture in the soil to keep the dust down but not make anything muddy. 

Here is the difference, this photo is the start of the day when the moisture was perfect…

  
And here is later in the day when the ground was all dried out again…

  
Trusts me, dust is always better than mud during nut harvest, but wow it was sure nice to enjoy some “perfect” harvesting conditions of only for a few hours!

Happy Friday! Stay tuned for some harvest videos and photos on Monday!

Photo Friday, Family Farming

10 Jul

Farming on our farm, like most farms across the nation, is a true family affair.  Hoot even clocked in for some harvesting this season.   

 Matt was on the ground checking the machine, letting us enjoy some air conditioning and snacks!   

 Life is good! Happy photo Friday!
