Blood and Bins

The boy who is wearing this bandage is a hometown hero. 
 As is this guy, who has the more traditional black bandage. 
The guys of GriggsDakota donated blood this morning and then chose a color for their bandage. Joseph declared that real men wear pink bandages, but I'm not sure anyone else listened.
Then we moved on to grain bin cleaning.
 The dust makes it look like a snow storm inside the bin.
When I turned off the flash, it was too dark. 
We want to appreciate the fine job of cleaning that has been done on every grain bin in GriggsDakota. 
Each season the bins are filled with a different crop. 
 Even if they are used for the same crop, it is important that the bin is fresh and clean.
It discourages insects. 
 A clean bin reduces spoilage during storage.
The cool weather has been perfect for getting into the bins. 
It is early to be finished with bin cleaning. 
But this is a year where we started early. 
And we expect that harvest will begin in July. 
We're glad to have bin cleaning done in GriggsDakota.
