This afternoon our good neighbors Mark and Matt Cooley brought their combine harvester to harvest our grain crops for us. We filled a 20 ton grain bin with Wheat and then bagged up Triticale (wheat/Rye cross). Tomorrow, Wednesday, we will work on the Barley and the Oats.
Filling the one ton bags with Triticale worked fine with the smaller bank out trailer with it's spout that fitted directly into the bag.
We think of community in terms of the customers we have but just as important are the farmers in our local community who help each other. It would be much harder and not so much fun without farmers like Mark and Matt who come to the rescue.
