Combining At Sunset...

On Monday afternoon, I posted about how we were anticipating the combine arriving to harvest the soybeans and corn.  The guys rolled in over milking time, and our neighbor captured these pictures, which he was kind enough to share with us!

Here they are, combining the beans... (photo credits...Steve Emerson)





I love those pictures of the combine in the sunset!  Thanks Steve!

By the time they got to the fields at our farm, it was dark.  I snapped this one of Jim and our Amish neighbor man watching them combining behind the barn...


When they were finished with the beans, they switched headers on the combine and started on the corn. They ran until 11:00 on Monday night, and then came back and finished on Tuesday.  The beans yielded great...no official numbers yet on bushels per acre, but we were pleased!

One more thing is checked off the list!

  4. What beautiful sunset photos! I know farm work is hard, but how rewarding it must feel to have a job like that done.

    1. Combining...harvesting...really the same thing! Just depends on what part of the country you're from, perhaps? :)

  12. I loved the pictures and that one in the dark with just the lights from the combine is so cool. I hope you get a huge yield per acre. I also like those photos with the combine and the sunset. So pretty.
