Well, our wheat harvest is over for 2017. It actually ended on July 5th when we finished our last job in McDonald, Kansas.
Since we are ones for thinking “outside the box” we decided not to follow the rest of the harvest crowd north. We just felt there would be one too many harvesters looking for work in the drought-stricken states of North and South Dakota and Eastern Montana. So, we packed up and moved south. Yep you read that right, south.
It took a good deal of looking for work and lots of prayers, but we found our first job shelling corn in Central Texas this week. The above average rainfall earlier this year has blessed the farmers with a record corn crop in this area of Texas.
So these “wheaties” are now onto finding fall work. We have decided that we will not be going back to Northwestern Ohio this fall. We have actually had flooding at home and too much rain is making a bad fall crop this year.
