Early, early the loaded truck would head for the Elevator..they open at 6 a.m.
Then back in time to head out to the field to start the combining. Although, one never really knew when the load would be dumped—sometimes the wait could be three hours or more. But by eleven a.m. Terry’s would be able to get into the fields and start loading up the truck.
We had clear skies most of the time
Three loads a day, if we could dump and get away without a long wait.
At the worst only one load.
But always, always we were able to get one load at night, to sit under the shed. We covered up the truck (just incase) then we would haul out just before first light.
Yesterday was the last day. The last load! The last dump!
The last of 2015 harvest is now—
at the Elevator!
Today we woke up to snow. But our fields are harvested.
Still I feel bad for those who are stuck. They will have to wait for this snow to dry off the shucks and the leaves before they can start again. Our neighbor told us his corn is still running 20%. What a hard year for corn harvest.
I am most thankful for the ability to get our harvest in, what a wonderful gift!
