While the rest of the world is preparing for winter, a new crop is beginning a 9-month journey from planting to harvest. Tender wheat blades erupt from brown soil, like soldiers in a row.
We started planting our 2016 wheat crop on September 24. We got a total of 1,559 acres completed last Tuesday evening, October 6. We planted 200 more acres for 2016 than we harvested this year.
as I hauled fertilizer tanks and fuel to fields (and saw my fair share of sunrises and sunsets in the meantime.)
There will likely be many twists and turns before harvest in June 2016 - whether we're talking weather conditions or market volatility. That's just part of farming.
