Yes....you guessed it!

We are still harvesting spring wheat.

Yes--we still have a few days to go.

I miss visiting you all-

I am going to start visiting you tonight!

Today North Dakota

it was cooler and we may get

our first frost tonight.

I would love to know what state you

I am in Virginia - SW Virginia, to be exact. We're in the Appalachian mountains. After days and days of rain, we've had two sunny days in a row. Temperatures here should get into the upper 40's tonight, and the highs tomorrow will be in the 60's. This is the first of cooler temperatures around here. I love fall, so I'm looking forward to it!

Happy harvesting!

Cheryl said...

North Carolina here. Was 80 today but suppose to be in the 70's rest of week with the lows in the 50's.

Love this weather and enjoy reading your blog!

Andora said...

I am in Eastern KY,and we are suppose to get in the 40's tonight,but no frost in sight just yet..but I am enjoying the nip in the air...

Farmgirl Cyn said...

West Michigan here! And it's extremely windy and raining. High around 59 today, with more of the same tomorrow. Eeks! I think Autumn came in like a lion!

Julie Harward said...

Hi there...well I made homemade wheat bread today,,thank you very much to the wonderful farmers out there in the good ole USA. Our weather in cooling down now, about 30-ish at night. Come say hi :D

Kris said...

Crazy that you're just now harvesting wheat in ND...we do that in KS at the end of June! We are planting wheat right now. Wheat harvest and frost do not go together around here. Our soybeans are almost ready for harvesting. We might be harvesting milo (grain sorghum) after the first frost. Highs near 70/75, low tonight might get all the way down to 37 - which will be the coldest we've had yet so far!

Debbie said...

In the heart of Illinois the temps have dropped back to low 60's today with 35 mph wind gusts. Tonight, lows in the 40s and tomorrow night in the 30s. Much cooler earlier this Fall than last year. Not much color yet.

Kay said...

SE Nebraska. It was warm and beautiful over the weekend. Windy today and cooler. Frost warnings tonight and rain again for Wed. night.

Soybean harvest has started here and I've started coughing and sneezing.

jojo said...

Western Washington here, and despite the rumors it's sunny and warm, but of course, we are expecting rain tomorrow..;p

for2far said...

Oh Dear, the freezing temp this morning got the tomatoes and cukes. I was out covering them last night, but a wind must have blown off the covers. It was 32 at 6am! I'm in the Panhandle of Nebraska.

goatmilker said...

We are in southern Michigan. It is very windy and cold. It rained all day yesterday and is suppose to today. Not very good weather to finish the crops so we can harvest. It was such a drastic change in temp yesterday I wore a hat and two sweatshirts instead of one.Have a great day Rebekah.

vivian said...

morning darling! NY... cold and rainy!!!

Gail said...

Arkansas...Our August was amazingly wet this year, the summmer was mild. September has started warm, but the last few days have been clear, cool in the morning and pleasantly warm and cloud free for three days.

Wendi said...

I am in central Indiana. Fall has decided to let us know it is now in charge. It is currently 50* and the high today will only be 59*.

Hope harvest is going well...no harvest happening here as of yet! Dianntha

Anke said...

We live in northern AL, very close to TN. This week the temps are supposed to be in the low 70's during the day and upper 40's at night. I love that time when you can just leave the windows open all day long. And it finally stopped raining!!!

Twisted Fencepost said...

First frost???? Oh no!
Not ready for that here. I just planted a late garden not long ago and I must receive atleast one mess off cucumbers and green beans.
It's been in the high 50's at night and around 80 during the day here in South Carolina. Supposed to be this way the rest of the week. It's beautiful weather.

Kathie Truitt said...

Northern Virginia. It's been absolutely beautiful but there is a new 'crispness' in the breeze. Love your blog and as a farm girl now stuck in the city I always enjoy your harvest/farm pictures.

Paula said...

Kansas is GORGEOUS! Middle 70's with sunshine! Sunflower fields are abloom everywhere. Our wheat harvest usually ends the first weeks of July. Mornings are covered with fog and dampness on the ground. Evenings are CHILLY!

The Farmers Oldest Daughter said...

I am in Arkansas close to the Oklahoma line. Our weather was down to 40 last night. In OK we do our harvesting in June. We are now getting ready to sew our wheat. I have family that does custom harvesting all the way up to North Dakota.

Hope you are having a good crop. Ours did not make this year. Thank goodnes for farmers. We couldn't eat without them.

Jamey said...

We're in south central Colorado, San Luis Valley. We've had our frost last week and all the leaves have started changing because of it. High yesterday of 75 but cools off to the 30s at night. Trying to get 3rd crop hay and combining of barley and oats done.

Sweet Blessings said...

I LOVE your pictures of the wheat harvest! I have a college friend who is married to a wheat man..and your pictures reminded me so much of their life!!! So glad harvest is almost over for you!

I live in Eastern Oregon...and Fall is definitely in the air here..I'm thinking I'm going to have to break out my winter feeding coat tomorrow :D Hope you have a GREAT weekend! Sweet blessings!

Susan said...

I'm sure your very busy with the farm. Hope all is going well.

Farm Chick Paula said...

Fall is finally here in East Tennessee! We've had such a rainy year- hopefully it will bring beautiful Fall colors!
Don't work too hard!

The Wife said...

Looks like the harvest turned out well! The farmers down here didn't fair so well with the drought.

Carolyn (Harbor Hon) said...

I've never actually seen wheat up close like that before. When I hear it looks like a field of gold, your second picture proves it. So pretty it's almost dazzling! And the wheat kernels? berries? (not sure which is right) are wonderful. You take some of the best pictures of your fields that I actually feel like I'm there. It calms me, you know? I can just imagine the wind blowing and the smell of fresh clean earth. *sigh* Thanks so much for that. xxoo

Carolyn (Harbor Hon) said...

Oh, sorry, almost forgot. Baltimore's weather is now cool at night and warm/cool during the day. The humidity is gone and it's wonderful to be outdoors again! Yay! xxoo

Katarina said...

Those are some wonderful pictures of the wheat (?) harvesting.
