Harvest

This time of year is the BEST.  We can open the windows, play outside without worries of getting too hot, harvest all kinds of veggies from the garden, watch football, drink red wine (instead of white; I just can’t get into white) and most importantly wear boots.  Don’t get me wrong, I get sad that summer is ending.  But there is so much I love about fall I can’t help but get excited.  This is also a busy time at work as the salesmen have their field days and we take out the research fields.  Today the guys were working on the plots here in Ellsworth so I went up and took some pictures. It was windy but I loved the chill in the air and am excited to go home and have something fall-y for dinner.  Or whatever my mom brings as she’s my parenting partner tonight (harvest season = no Seth for a while).

Jackson got SO excited (I can’t believe I forgot my camera!!) to see the tractors and Daddy and super bonus- his cousin Kyler was there too! During this time of year farmers tend to congregate around Champion Seed to see how the yields are coming out as the plots are being harvested, so there were a few farmers hanging out in the field as well.  They all drove their trucks right onto the field and they all had a can of Coors Light in their hands and dirt on their boots.  I rolled up in my mini (yes, I drove the minivan onto a corn field), wearing flip-flops, carrying a latte.  Sing it with me.. one of these things is not like the other… Today I was much better equipped- I have boots on, drove the Ranger, and ate some sunflower seeds.  DSC_0190Here are some of Seth’s supplies as he tests the corn and beans that are being harvested.

Cheers to a good harvest season (with red wine, obviously)!
