It still doesn't seem like that much time....unless you have been putting in 10-16 hours a day seat time in tractors, trucks, combines, and in the chaotic time spent keeping everything running and moving augers and machinery.
I'm kind of pooped. My Wonderful Neighbor Wannie and I were just talking on our phones yesterday. She was in a tractor at the elevator waiting to unload grain, and I was sitting in the tractor that pulls our auger cart out in the field. Our conversation went like this:
Me: How are you doing?
(chatter chatter chatter)
W: Have you lost any weight doing this all day this long?"
Me: "Don't I wish! If brain activity could burn calories I would be the skinniest girl in the world! The reality is I've spent most of my field time sitting on my butt, and it hasn't shrunk any that I would notice."
W: "Me neither!"
If only it was that simple! We are officially into Day 25, and there are two large corn fields (like 180+ acres) and two bean fields (about 200+ acres) left to pick, cut, harvest....Whatever you want to call it.
Here are some pics from harvest, just in case you have been missing them on Instagram:
