Combining Wheat

The bearded wheat I showed on this blog a few days ago ripened and I found Earl York, Jr. and his son Rodney hard at work combining it. The Yorks run a fertilizer and seed business as well as producing corn, soybeans and small grains. This year they have several hundred acres in wheat, and so far the harvest looks pretty good. Thank goodness for air conditioned combines, because when I stopped by where they were working, the mercury was near 100 degrees. Although, with all farm equipment, you have to get out of the cab and work on things once in a while.
