is June 23 at the Ehmke farm. Our custom cutters have arrived.
They are a family operation with four combines as well as the
support trucks and housing they bring with them.
The wheat is nearly ready with some varieties more mature than
others. The hot dry winds of May shriveled some of our wheat
. That will mean poor test weights but we hope it is not a lot.
A thunderstorm moved through dumping hail on some farms but
this time it passed us by.
To update on family: Tanner is working for us as head irrigator
and all around do everything help. Layton is doing some of that
as well as camps and a college algebra class. He'll be student
body president next year at Dighton High School. Cole is doing
fine at the University of Sydney in Australia. He has major
exams this week and misses the harvest activity and we miss
him! Marit camped outside last night! Plus she takes care of
her 4-H bunny. She also adjusting to wearing glasses.
