It’s a rainy morning in SWIN! We’ve been hoping (and praying) for some rain for about 15 days now, and it’s a happy thing to see it coming.
I hope you had the opportunity to experience the eclipse yesterday. We used the cutting torch goggles underneath our welding helmet to view it at it’s highest point here (97%) at 2:20 pm. It was a memorable sight!
We have been making progress on our harvest preparations. The trucks are finally all ready. A couple of them had to go to town for some A/C and brake repairs. The guys are working today on the landing gear of one of the hopper trailers. It was getting too hard to crank, and they’ve fixed that.
Yesterday was a good day for mowing roadsides. This should be the final pass for the bush hog before harvest.
The JD S680 combine and its headers came out of storage yesterday and got their pre-harvest service. Those are now ready for #harvest17.
We are grateful for this rain. As dad would have said, “This will ruin those little soybeans…it’ll turn them into big soybeans!”
Have a great day.
