Are any of my HarvestHER friends observant on the country gravel roads like I am? I am a distant looker when I drive and when I spot something that seems interesting, I try to go back to it and see what it is. Usually it’s when I take supper to the field I find something that I can take a picture of or something I can just admire. So with that, I always take the same way home just to go back to that spot. Last night, I came across that something I just had to come back to.
This is what I had to come back to. It’s a dark pic due to it being late in the evening. It’s an auger on a hill in a pasture with a fence around it. I ask myself, “Why is it that way”? Is someone buried there? Is it a landmark? 🤔 Not sure but it got my attention. It’s an old auger, of some value to someone. It’s things like this I find that keeps me curious 😁
We are currently in northeastern Montana cutting Durum. My child still calls it wheat but that’s okay. Definitely not the best crop they have had but with the drought, I guess it’s better than nothing.
The Durum is averaging 15 to 20 Bu/acre. The farmers in Montana do quite a bit of binning for most of their grain instead of hauling it straight to the elevator.
So, our truck drivers keep a little busy with the poor Durum conditions.
Little Monte and I enjoyed some fun in the Durum before heading back to the camper to clean up the supper mess. I made Country Fried Steaks, a favorite of everyone’s.
And to end my night, an orange reddish moon came up in the east. Very pretty in person, I had to get my good camera out for that. Hope everyone is having a good end of the wheat harvest. Can’t believe it will be done soon. Making the best of it for now. Stay safe everyone and God Bless!!!
