Harvest 2009, day 1

Started cutting today around 2 PM. Thought it would be a bit green, but it was 12% moisture, which is good and even a bit on the low side. So far, it’s just our combine, but the custom cutting crew we use showed up in the afternoon, said they had gotten rained out in Geraldine and would probably be heading our way soon.

Fed seven people tonight, just our crew and immediate family.

The menu:

  • Iced tea & Lemonade
  • Green Salad
  • Bread&Butter sandwiches
  • Pork chops
  • Mashed potatoes
  • White Gravy
  • Blueberry pie

My sister stayed home from work today and helped me get stuff ready — made a grocery run into town in the morning, helped make the salad and drinks, and helped pack up the various cooler and carriers from the root cellar. Thanks Kim! 🙂
