Summer is officially on at the farm! June is coming to a close, and that means wheat harvest cannot be far off. Other jobs still keep us busy, but we’ll be spending a few days in the field soon bringing in the wheat harvest and planting soybeans right behind it. Take a look at what we’ve been up to this week!
Corn, Corn, Corn
We hauled several more loads of waxy corn. This bin is nearly empty. There might be just over one load left inside, and then we’ll move on to the next one!Always like seeing this Purdue colored rig when I’m hauling to Tate & Lyle in Lafayette.
Unfortunately when hauling soybeans this winter we found we had some storage issues in one silo. We got our beans hauled out without much issue, but now we have rotten soybeans stuck to the walls that need to be cleaned out otherwise they’ll cause problems for the new crop this fall.
Waiting for Wheat
The draper head we’ll cut wheat with needed a couple of stone guards and sickle sections to replace broken pieces from cutting soybeans last fall. It’s good to go now!
The combine woke up for a few minutes to pull out of the shed, get some fuel, and move into the shop so we can set it up for wheat harvest.
Will I have harvest pictures next week? You better come back to find out!
