Wheat Harvest 2015 – Kansas Style – 4

June 23, 2015 Tuesday

Milton unloaded the truck from the last cut from the night before, did some maintenance type stuff, and took his tractor and planter to a field.  He wanted to get it setup so it was ready to go tomorrow.  Milton will rise very early and begin grain sorghum planting in a field that he just harvested wheat off of.

The photographer was too busy to get many pictures today.  They traveled to several fields and harvest is going well.  PV and I traveled to her softball game with other family members. 

When we turned down the road we live on about 10:00 pm Milton was cutting in the field. There’s something about seeing a combine with it’s lights on that makes you stop and think. Way past sunset still going.

Day four stats:
Fields harvested: EH28, DO28C, FAR16Hi 
Started cutting at 10:00 am
134 Acres approximately harvested
