Harvest coming to an end. It’s been a tough one. It takes a lot of hard work and patience. Farming isn’t easy. The other day Garrett told me that even though he gets frustrated and has bad days, he chose this life. He said if he didn’t want to farm then he wouldn’t. Even though it’s hard work and he doesn’t get much sleep, he loves it. I just smiled because I am glad that he gets to do what he loves. I just wish he could take a break more often. 💙 #farming #wheat #harvest #oklahoma #lifeofafarmer #farmersgirl #summertime #gleanercombine

Almost 35 years and it never gets old. 🌾

For almost 35 years I’ve sat in the cab of a Gleaner combine. I started out on the floor when I was Asher’s age, then I moved to the buddy seat for a few years when I was the twins age, and then once I hit the ripe ole’ age of 8 or so, my dad taught me how to drive and I’ve been cutting wheat every summer since.

Growing up on a custom harvesting crew, every summer this is just what we did. We would travel north, make all the stops, see our old friends, cut all the wheat and then get back home just before school started. I could’ve hated it, but instead I grew to love it and still can’t get enough of it. So yep after all these years, this is still my favorite seat.

STOP!🛑
Still waiting for below 13 to get this crop off. You would think the extra dry, warm #autumn🍁 would bring the moisture down. Farming IS a #professionofhope 🌱

Spend a little more time trying to make something of yourself than trying to impress people. Follow your heart not others wishes. @georgia_agriculture #gleanercombine #dekalbcorn #cornharvest2018

Sunrise in Simla, CO on Wheat Harvest. This old Gleaner made for the perfect picture. #gleanercombine #summersunrise #wheatharvest #coloradowheaties #riataphotography

As part or our capacity building plans, we've decided to upgrade our 1956 combine to a more modern 1976 combine. The old combine was a pull-type, meaning that it was towed behind the tractor - which in turn forces us to drive in a clockwise pattern, starting at the outside perimeter of the field. This combine has its own engine and frees us from that constraint, and allows us to seed another 10' around the perimeter of the field. A down-side to the newer combine is that it does not have a scour cleaner - a clever contraption that diverts the tiny weed seed out of the harvested grain, and funnels it into a separate bag. It can be used as chicken feed or compost, but more importantly does not end up back in the field. .
It will take a while to 'make friends' with it, find all the grease fitting, and to read the manual a few times(...yes I am a manual reader;-))
