So while we are waiting on the field to ripen. Dean's always working on the combine and I'm always checking on him and asking questions.
Check out the plastic comb by Dean's elbow. The wires attached to the comb monitor grain loss when the combine is blowing out the straw and dirt out the back. It doesn't make sense to grow a crop of wheat only to lose it out the back.
He is always checking belts, chains, and greasing this big machine. We made a trip to the elevator.
I've made many trips to the elevator by myself, but it's not often we do it together. Below is a gentleman shaking the wagon to make sure every last grain is out.
Hope everyone one is having a nice 4th of July. We have so much to be thankful for.
P.S. Dean maintains the combine--when was the last time we maintained our sewing machines? Just cleaning out the lint build-up in your bobbin case and giving it a drop of oil makes all the difference in the world!
