The Wheat Harvest Is Rolling In

As of today the paper says the wheat harvest is about half in for farms along the I-70 corridor.  The wet summer delayed cutting by about 2 weeks but the reports are pretty good.  It sounds like yields are high.  Our field was abandoned by the farmer leasing from us because of the hail storms.  I am still contemplating cutting a bunch and see if it grinds.  No sense in letting it go to waste!  This time of year Byers turns into Big Ag central.  The combines are turning and the harvest trucks are stacked 20 deep at the elevator.  The trains continually come through town to fill up the grain haulers.   Doesn’t look like there will be a shortage of hamburger buns!
