I just wanted to get up a few photos of my family's "old-time harvest days". My Dad has kept a 100 year old threshing machine in running condition, and this summer, with all his grandchildren home at the same time, he showed us all how harvesting was done in the good ole days! I'll have a full post later, but here are just a few photos to show what I mean. Just like in the old days, we harvested when the grain was ready, and that just happened to be on the hottest days of the summer. I don't know what was worse, stacking up all the tied sheaves on the field, or throwing those sheaves into the threshing machine, that threw dust and chaff everywhere! A shower has never felt so good!
