End Of The Day

When Harland is baling hay, he quits for the day at about 7:30pm. But he doesn’t come home right away.

First he takes care of maintenance on the tractor and baler.

He fuels up the tractor:

He greases the baler. Baling is a dusty dirty job so its important to keep everything well lubricated. A cordless grease gun is a must.

He oils the chain inside the baler:

He cleans the windows. Dirt and dust begone!

Then he tucks the tractor and baler into barn for the night:

And finally it’s time to head home for supper, shower, and bed.

He’s almost done with the hay for the year.

But there’s no rest for Harland – he started wheat harvest yesterday.

  • I’m assuming that he has his own combine? A friend of ours in on the wheat harvest out west this summer, with a crew out of Inman Ks.

      Your friend is working his way up into the north part of the state I’ll bet.Wheat harvest kicked into gear around here in the last couple days.
      Yes, we have our own combine. We use it also for the corn and beans.

    What time does he start in the morning? How long does the clean-up, etc., take in the evening? That’s a long day, but nobody ever said farming was easy!

    • Suzanne

      As soon as the dew dries, which varies from day to day. Usually he starts after lunch. Before that he does repairs, checks the cattle, makes a run to town for parts, etc. Clean up takes about 10-15 minutes in the evening.
      Thanks Jeanne.
