Wheat is Over

Most years at this time we would be hot-n-heavy in the wheat field, but because of the extremely wet fall we had around here we, Caleb and I, didn't sow any. Pop however did get some in the ground and by some I mean about 60 acres. In comparison to most years the three farms combine usually sow about 1,500 acres. So we were down just a little bit this year.

So when harvest time came around this year it lasted only half a day. I wasn't able to get over there to see the combine rollin' through the field, but here are a few pics that I took of the little bit of wheat we had on the farm.









This is all that was left in the field by the time I got there.




The entire field fit into the semi trailer.






I will say that I loved not having to mess with much wheat this year cause it made the spring time a lot less hectic.

With that being said I am gonna sign off, go to bed and rejoice that the 2010 wheat harvest is over on the Phillips Farm!

  1. Great pictures. As you probably seen on my blog I am overloading with wheat pictures. We should start Thursday. I'm taking all next week off of work to help so it could be interesting. We have about 1500 acres. But the problem we are having is it keeps raining. Who would have thought we'd ever complain about moisture, but its been so wet here. Over the weekend we had another 1" which makes 4" for June. Completely out of the norm for our area.

    Glad you are done now you and Caleb can come help us......hello....Janet....are you there....hello! :)

  2. Loved these pics! This post brought back memories, my grandpa was a dry land wheat farmer in Tx. We spent many summer's with him during harvest.
