With great joy and thankfulness we are moving along in the harvest!!
We have two fields done and working on the last one!
He was number sixteen! It’s a time of visiting among the drivers, but still…a very long wait.
They dump two trucks at a time. The semi’s take about 45 minutes each to dump, a truck our size take 20 minutes. In between the dumping stops if there is a customer (dairy, feed lot, chicken farm…etc.) who comes in and wants a load of corn.
I went down at five to take him supper and he still had an hour and half wait to go. I stayed there to keep him company. There was one other truck behind him.
The elevator opens at 6:00 in the morning and they stop taking loads after 3:00 in the afternoon. Long hours for the workers at the elevator. Long hours, but (more likely) much appreciated over-time.
10:00 this morning he was back in the combine opening up the third field! Hopefully by Monday of next week we will be done!
When we got in, got everything put away for the night it was dark. I looked up into the moonlit sky and saw the most perfect Halloween moon! I just had to share it with you!
