harvest time

The farmers ’round here are in full harvest swing. The two-week dry spell means it’s almost a guarantee to see farmers out in their fields from daybreak until well after dark. The tractors lights are a bit eerie, when you come upon one suddenly late in the night. Harvest also means that it’s pretty much impossible not to get caught at least once a day behind a tractor pulling two gravity boxes along at about 20 miles per hour. Word around here is that it’s been consistently record harvests. The hot, wet weather earlier this summer and dry harvest period was pretty ideal.
