The Days of August

The days of August are spent two different ways. 
There are days spent combining. 
 There are days spent wishing we could combine.
 The wheat is ripe, but not dried down.
It has begun to make us wonder if there will be enough warm days to dry it down. There is rain in the forecast. Much of the rest of August might be spent wishing we could combine.
So we are combining the Winter Wheat wet. 
Wet is above the 13.5% moisture level that is safe for long term storage. 
The straw is dry and it goes through the machine nicely. 
 The wheat is then dumped into a truck and hauled to the bin site where it will be dried and cooled before being hauled into the elevator.
As the harvest continues in GriggsDakota.
