For the past two years, I have documented our farms’ harvest with photos. I got the idea from Project 365; documenting your life one photo a day for a year. I have a hard time committing to such an endeavour such as that, so I have decided to again do Harvest in Pictures for 2015 harvest.

Today was our first day of actual harvest. We have been plagued¬†blessed with lots of rain in the past week, which doesn’t help harvest conditions. Last week, before the rain, our wheat was one point from dry, but still with lots of greens (or immature kernels), and since the wheat had been desiccated a few weeks prior, we decided to leave it stand during the rain. Now, although the wheat is still testing as too wet to store, we decided to utilize our grain dryer and take the grain off wet and dry it down to proper moisture.

That's a wrap on Day 1!
