Harvest 2015

combining wheat 2015

Step outside the back door and you know that it’s harvest time. First the unmistakable dusty smell of harvest, then the steady noise of the combine in a distant field and the roar of the tractors driving into the yard …

It is a slightly fraught time of year, when everything seems to be done at a run, tempers run short and the weather forecasts consulted and sworn about more than usual.

Thankfully, I’m no longer required to drive tractors and corn cart but have slipped into the role of chief gofer, provider of refreshments and soothing influence.

I am more suited to some of these roles than others.

These busy times on the farming calendar can test us out cant they? Of course it is all worth it in the end. Beautiful, honest photos from the farm. Thanks Anne x

    I remember the harvest time on our farm in Germany. As a child my job was to bring refreshment and food to the fields. Later I drove the tractor in the fields. I liked that much better. I remember the enormous dust when harvesting the wheat.
