Harvest

DSC01799

Weather has made farm life quite challenging in the past few months, but we managed to finish harvest thanks to our friends Lee and Dana Petersen, who have been coming here to harvest for 11 years. They have a great crew, and with the help of our friend Sam from Virginia and our employee Jeremy, we brought a bountiful harvest in from the field before the snow flew.

Since harvest was later than usual, I took more photos at night than I have in previous years, and I also caught some interesting clouds as we dodged storms throughout the harvest season.

Like every harvest, this one had its fair share of mishaps.

But we kept smiling and enjoyed our time together.

Out here, you make sure you don't fall asleep on the job since the edge of the field leads to a bit of a ditch.

But it makes for a beautiful work environment.

It even makes it worth living here. . . where it snows in the middle of September.
