The Harvest Rush

If you haven't found out yet, you will soon find out, what the rush of harvest can really feel like. 

It means early mornings, very late nights, running back and forth from field to field, and having a farmer that is going a mile minute. 

The one and only tractor nap I was able to get out of this girl this week!
I raked some hay, and then some more hay....

And then some more hay....

And then when I was almost done my hubby baled it. 

I got to see this cutie smile at me every time I came to get her from her Daddy!
We have been chopping a lot of corn silage. Tomorrow this bunk should be completely full and ready to be tarped down.
I drove the water trailer around the section and watered all the new fence posts my husband set a couple of days ago. She is my helper. 
And, in the midst of harvest I am getting my garden cleaned up. She wanted to run behind the wagon because she could then talk to the cattle in the feed yard. 
And I baked 4 dozen cookies to get me through my cooking week for the farm next week. Not to mention two loaves of pumpkin bread and some brownies. 
I ended today moving the bales my husband baled yesterday. I stacked them all nice in a line ready and waiting to be hauled for feed for our cattle.

Our busy season is already busy with us being in the fields non stop, but that doesn't mean the other work just gets pushed to the side. There is still hay to be baled, cattle to be fed, fence to set, meals to make.

This is where the farmer's wife comes in, or girlfriend! :)

Happy Harvest!
