Earlier this week, we pretty much got everything done to the semi tractor that needed to be done to have it ready for harvest. Yesterday, dad brought the combine and corn head home so we can get it ready for harvest. I don't think there are any major repairs to make on it. We will/are replacing the auger that fills the grain tank. I spent some time yesterday morning switching the combine from where things were set to harvest wheat, to where they need to be set to harvest soybeans.

What is the corn yielding per acre?

200 bushels/acre.Which was good for the fields that were harvested.

Well, we are pretty close to having the machinery ready for harvest. Probably won't start harvesting this week. Sounds like a cool week with chances of rain. Not good drying weather for the crops.

We started harvesting last Friday. I got to run the combine by myself for the first time yesterday! Here are some pictures from yesterday. We were limited on how much we could do, because our semi is out of commission and we need a rainy day to fix it.
