Excitement.

Look.  It has finally dried out enough that our headers are going around.

Header Harvesting

There is dust and everything!


Header - Driving On By

We are excited.  I hope the heavy machinery aficionados amongst you appreciate how dusty I got taking these photos....

Hope everyone has had a good week so far.  Last day of school here tomorrow.

I hope the fine weather continues for you to get the crops off. It is frustrating for the farmers when the weather doesn't play nice...

Lovely dusty photos, I appreciate them!

Hope the weather holds and you have a good harvest. Hard to believe you're combining when it's so cold and the middle of winter here in England.

Yes, wishing you fine days and bumper crops!

Glad everything's going well. Bit too dusty for our liking over here as well. Hopefully the wet season's on its way.

Ah the dust, remember it well. I'm glad where you live it has dried out sufficiently to get back to harvesting. Unfortunately my brothers farm received another dumping of rain in the Central Wheatbelt area. Bit of a disaster season for him.

Glad to see you back at it! We will finish our harvest today after a really good run with no major breakdowns or weather interruptions! Merry Christmas! Donna

Ooh I hope you get your crops off and then we all get a big dumping! It is so dry here! We need another flood to get the feed up again. Xx,j

Great photos - you have clearly Suffered For The Blog in going out in the dusty paddock for them. Hope harvest continues well. We finish school today as well. You probably won't hear from me until February now. Joking. Ok, maybe not. xx

Your post makes this farmwife JEALOUS! Here in Manitoba, CANADA harvest is so far from our minds! Our land is covered in snow and everything is frozen. Seeding will commence sometime in May... followed by harvest in Aug/Sep. Your pictures look like what it looks like here for us in September... but it's so weird to see harvesting in December... when we're experiencing -28 degree windchills right now! I long for hot, dusty harvest days... can't wait for another one! :)
