Welcome to Harvest 2007!!!

Posted by thesinger on June 25, 2007

Am I stoked? I am stoked.

What is harvest? Harvest for us generally refers to the process of the removal of wheat from the field as well as the storage of the wheat in our bins. We raise Certified Seed to sell, therefore, we have a slightly more complicated than the average wheat farmer in Kansas. For instance, (this is sortof obvious, but extremely important anyway), we may not mix varieties of wheat AT ALL. So, we even have to wash and clean out our combines every time we switch to another variety. In some ways the whole Certified Wheat thing is a pain, but in the long run, having an excellent product to offer our customers is very satisfying.

We have been cutting since Wednesday, and I have been extremely busy as a result of that. It seems as though when the wheat is ready to cut, that turns into our only priority. Also since Wednesday, I have not worked less than 12 hours per day. This gives you an idea about the busyness of wheat harvest.

One exceptionally good thing about Harvest is that Mom and Anja make sack lunches for us out in the field every evening that we’re cutting. Generally, that is The Best part of the whole afternoon and evening. You might wonder why? For starters, the food is just Great. (Mom is an excellent cook!!!) Two, we have been working for the whole afternoon without sustenance, and find any kind of stomach-filling activities to be very non-abstruse. (Go look it up.)

So, this may give you a small glimpse into Harvest 2007.

Peace out,

    12 hr days? Ouch. (I guess if you keep busy, you’re more likely to behave tho, right? 😛 ) Glad you enjoy it tho! so are you mostly cutting the wheat, or working at MSF?
