Farm Girl Friday -18 October 2013

Farm Girl Friday
Farm Girl Friday is about the Farmer and the Farm Girly.

We have finished up the soybean harvest for this year.  It's turned out to be a pretty good year.  Last year, even with the drought our beans were decent enough because we keep our seeds and they are used to our climate.  In case anyone was interested, this is Grandpa driving the Gleaner L with the soybean flex head.

One of the nice things with the 'new' combine is the cab is much bigger making lots of room for company.  Ella loves to take a few trips around the field.  I like that it is a lot more air-tight.  Soybeans are so dusty when they are being combined.

Colin got some of the soybean ground chisel plowed yesterday.  He doesn't usually plow much, he prefers to 'no-till'.  There's no plowing going on today after all the rain we got last night.  Oh well, I'm sure he'll find something else to do  :)
