Jada: Harvest continues in Roscoe. Wraps up in Gettysburg

Last night our guys wrapped up harvest in Gettysburg and got ready to move home. Today they will be able to cut our wheat in Bowdle. The rest of the crew continues to cut in Roscoe. The area is flooded. In fact, highway 12- a major road- is flooded. Our combines were actually cutting right beside the road that is flooded. Which means we are surrounded by water and have been playing in the mud. The lodged wheat also continues to be a challenge. Here are some combine views of the water setting around our field.

On Saturday, we were unable to cut so we headed to Selby to help celebrate Mike Kraft of Kraft Harvesting’s birthday. His wife and party planner, Wendy, invited a large group and had a more food than can ever be imagined. These moments are what make harvest fun.
