Wheat Harvest 2014 certainly hasn't been the typical harvest. At this point, we've been out of the field more days than we've been in it. So, if the wheat and the fields dry out enough, we'll be cutting wheat on the 4th of July. We plan to start harvesting again early this afternoon "up north," on sandier ground.
We won't be relaxing next to a calm lake with sunlight dancing across its mirror-like surface.
But it's more likely that the show in our western skies will be from the sun sinking toward the horizon.

If you want to celebrate your patriotism with some all-American baking, you can try any of these tried and true recipes from Kim's County Line. They work equally well in the harvest field or at a more typical 4th of July celebration.

(Caveat: I didn't wait until the brownies were completely cool to frost and cut. It didn't affect the taste; just the look!
