Tractor Seat Update

Tractor Seat Update - Soybean Harvest
This past week we have concentrated on harvesting soybeans.  With unexpected rain Wednesday night and a frost last night, we've had shorten harvest days, due to the ground and soybeans being too wet.  Each day we've had to wait for the morning dew to dry up (or this morning, morning frost to disappear) so we can bring our equipment into the field to harvest.  This has made this week very stop and go, and I'll admit a little annoying.  It is so much nicer when we are able to just get up in the morning and run all day, rather than playing this waiting game each day.

And we aren't the only ones that have been playing the waiting game this week.  The Iowa crop progress report, released on Monday afternoon, put Iowa's harvest progress at the slowest rate in over 30 years.  30 years!  Now that it a little scary to think about, but one thing that makes me feel better is that we have more efficient equipment now than we did 30 years ago, so hopefully we'll still be able to finish before baby #3 - JP, arrives...

  2. Good grief! 30 years? That is amazing and a little scary, I am sure. Hopefully the next few weeks will prove to be better for harvesting!
