I was wondering why I didn't
have any comments!!!!
Sunflower harvest is in full swing
and things are really busy here.
Sometimes I am not sure if I am coming or going!! I am starting to feel the pressure of getting through harvest, getting kids to
and from activities and
I don't have much ready for an upcoming show. I have been up since 5:30 am writing to do lists! Jr. Farmer requested Blueberry Waffles for breakfast so I whipped up a batch for everyone. It's beginning to really seem like fall even with our warm 70 degree temperatures. The sun doesn't come up until after 8 am and so my kids leave for school in the dark. I don't like that....it just seems so early! I feel like they should be home snuggling with me! Luckily, Lil' Farm Boy is still home with me!! We have a busy day with harvesting. Lil' Farmchick has basketball practice and we have church tonight. I also have to plan for the school Halloween Party. This is my 10th year of being a room mom!
Remember what our sunflowers looked like in July? Now they look like this. I know, not as pretty
but they must dry down in order
for us to combine them!!
The seeds have to be dry.
This is Mr. Farmer harvesting
with one of the combines.
Notice on the top of the combine
you can see the sunflowers seeds piling
up in the hopper? That means it is almost
time to dump the combine or the seed will run
out on the ground....and that's a no- no!
(I have accidentally overflowed the hopper
in the past...it is one thing that makes
farmers get a little upset but they do get over it!
This shows the seeds coming out of the combine
auger going into the graincart. The graincart
then dumps the seeds into the grain trailer.
I love combining sunflowers....
they are my favorite crop to harvest.
It is so much fun to be in the combine!
I hope you enjoyed the harvest!!
