Harvest Time 2

Honey got home tonight and decided to harvest our oats.  I thought I'd give you a look at our high tech equipment.
This is our combine.  Not sure of the age, but it works and is actually kind of fun to use.
This is our grain truck.  It doesn't run right now, but it makes a great place to store our grain.

My honey augering the grain into the truck.
Now he's back out to the field to combine another load.  I love having all of this grain to feed out to our critters.  What a blessing.

There's something about farm work that I just love. All aspects of it. Farmers make do with whatever they have. Or at least they used to. And it's wonderful to see that you still do. Love posts like this. Simple but they give a real flavor of your life and land.

We are just beginning our hay as we have had so much rain. Put we have had a good few days and have a lot down. The grain will be a few weeks yet. Do you only do oats? We do oats, barley, and wheat. We are hoping for a better yield then last year. I love the idea that the combine goes on the back of the tractor. Ours is a old combine that you drive. I love the old truck we are looking for one like that to have for just around the farm, but they are worth a mint here.
I have used both in my dying but much rather use my own, I try all different types of things for dying. I love flowers, and veggies.
Take care and enjoy your weekend with your family. I love your blog and will continue to read it daily now that I have found it.

I love your equipment! Can you eat the oats too?

Jessica,
We raise oats and wheat, no barley. Do you use the barley for feed? We still have five fields left to hay, but the rain is putting us way behind.
Thanks for stopping by.

Mama Pea-My honey is a collector. He loves old equipment. We have an old dragline, one of a kind gas shovel, little Oliver dozer. Not all of this works, but it looks good sitting along the tree line. :) ( He could collect stamps, they take up so much less room.)

Cami,
The oats need to be hulled before people can eat them and we don't have the equipment for that. I wish we could eat them. All the oatmeal we want. :)
