Harvesting Q&A

Round Two of the Q&A concerns harvest:

I really enjoy these photos and seeing your harvest. What is the grain you are harvesting?

Gorgeous pictures! How did the crops run? Our wheat was fantastic!

What kind of header is on the combine? I realize it is a draper header, but what manufacturer, etc.?

Right now we are harvesting winter wheat. I use the term "we" very loosely here. Actually, my father-in-law, my husband, the hired man, some Virginians, some Canadians, and an Australian are harvesting the winter wheat. But that's another story.

My girl is harvesting a little for herself.

The crops are good this year. We have had issues with worms and sawfly, but the moisture was good and the temperatures were fairly mild this summer.

The header is a HoneyBee. It's long, it's yellow, and it has its own wheels. Sorry, but that's about as technical as I get.

Thanks for the grain answer. I see your child riding in the combine. That is precious.

Our children all rode, now our grandchildren get to ride.
