The day before Boy's birthday, the fields around our homestead were harvested.
And Boy got to ride along!! He rode along in the combine a few years ago.
This year he rode in the Case International Harvester Steiger. Otherwise know as the "Dingle Hopper Truck". (It's the red truck) It's the "chaser" truck with a hopper trailer for the combines to empty into out in the field and then it comes back to load it into the semis to go to the silos.

This summer/fall has been crazy busy with the normal, and the not so normal stuff going on. I haven't blogged, I've barely facebooked. Now that things are starting to wind down on the farm, I am going to try to retro post all that went on this summer and fall! And it's been a lot, so be sure to page back occasionally. The current plan is to work oldest to newest, but keeping this reminder post at the top. So I will be going back to August time frame to post.
You may or may not remember that I have a looming "101 in 1001" deadline (23 days to be exact.) And one of the goals is to have the blog caught up by then. We're looking at almost 50 posts going up in the next 23 days. Hold onto your hat! And I will also have some "guest posts" from my Man. He has spent a bunch of time this summer stuck in his chair, and he HAS been updating what he's been doing on a Homesteading board we are a part of on Facebook. So I will be reposting his pictures and commentaries too!
And as Jackie Gleason used to say...And away we go.....
