Harvesting Flax

We are busy harvesting flax here on our farm. Thankfully, we are almost done!!! We will then only have soybeans and sunflowers left to harvest. This fall sure is moving along quickly.

Combining flax.

Dumping the flax from the combine into the truck.

I hope you enjoyed the pictures of our flax harvest. If you would like more information on flax please go to this post I wrote last year called Flax....A sea of blue.

Thanks for stopping by and as always....please leave me a comment so I know you were here and I can return the visit. Have a wonderful fall day! :)

We'll be done with harvest by the weekend (God willing!). Should finished corn tomorrow. 10 more acres of beans that were green when he finished the rest of them.

I'd like to have some nice warmish Fall days with my Farmer to help me around the place.

I love meeting other farm wives! I can't believe how different farming is where you are. The East Coast has smaller farms. We'd have to buy adjacent farms just to park that big old combine of yours!lol I'm going over to follow as soon as I finish this comment. Please come follow me so us farm gals can stick together.
BTW- That flax is beautiful. I'm a sucker for blue flowers!

Have a super weekend!

You are a real farm girl while I am just a play one. :)
Have a great day!

I always love when the flax blooms at the farms around here. Along with canola it makes for the prettiest views.

I think there should be a paint color, Flax Blue. I think it would be one of my favorites.
