Photo Friday, Grass Seed Harvest

Grass seed harvest has begun…well then it started raining so it stopped.  But it will pick up again once things dry out.  Until then here are a few photos from the first few days.

This is tall fescue seed that is being harvested.  It has been cut and cured on the ground for about a week.  Once harvested the seed is trucked to a cleaner, tested for weeds and germ, then sent all over the world for golf courses, laws, sports fields, etc.

Here are some photos from day 1 of harvest out in the field.  We run two combines, one John Deere and one New Holland.

Davor is learning the life of harvest, which means family time is spent out in the fields.  The boys and I bring dinner to the crew every night, and sometimes Hoot and I get to drive the “bines” (as he calls them) while the drivers take a break.  I use the term “sometimes” very lightly, it’s hard to keep that boy out of those combines!



So while this break because of the weather is frustrating, we will get back out into the fields soon.  Until then we will enjoy a little slower pace this weekend, and pray for more sunshine to show up…very soon!!

Green Bean Field Dirt Work

We are gearing up to plant our first field of green beans for the year. Using our newest John Deere tractor to get the job done, equipped with auto steer to boot. Which basically means the driver only has to turn the corners, point the tractor in the right direction and it takes the wheel.  

 Meanwhile Hoot is at the farm not to sure where to hit the auto steer button on his tractor… 

 Happy Photo Friday!
