Picking Pumpkins

I finally picked all my pumpkins! A rainy fall delayed the process a bit, and a few of my pumpkins have a little green on them but with the sun shining they will all be bright orange just in time for Halloween. It also gave me a chance to practice my self-timer settings on my camera.

 

Harvesting pumpkins is easily one of the best workouts of the year.

 

NH3

I love when my work for CVA collides with my favorite hobby. Got some much needed anhydrous photos last night. Prayers to everyone applying anhydrous – safety first. I give Jordan a lecture every time he leaves the house to apply NH3 but I don’t care accidents happen in the blink of an eye.

Sunday Sun Flares

Like a lot of people out there, I would consider Sunday to be my favorite day of the week. Worship, breakfast food, quality time with loved ones what’s not to love?

This Sunday Jordan mentioned he needed to go up to his grandparents to do chores, and like I typically do when he heads North to do chores I informed him I would go with him. No, not to help – but to take pictures. Duh.

Sunset + curious critters = count me in. AND I can’t pass up a chance to check on how Herbie is growing. Whos Herbie, you ask? Herbie was our first calf last year, and the name just stuck. #gohuskers

Harvest 2016

Another Growing Season has come to a close, and Harvest is complete. I always take a plethora of images throughout Harvest, so here’s a handful of my favorites. Not just John Deere in my Harvest photos anymore – now that I’m officially an Emanuel New Hollands are also finding their way into the path of my lens.

Welcome to Your New Home

This pot load came as a delivery from Hayes Center, it was fun getting them unloaded and seeing them check out their new surroundings. I just love the lone blondie – never be afraid to stand out from the crowd. 🙂

Summer Nights

In the Summer on Wednesday Nights we gather at the hill with friends to enjoy the sunset, have a few brews and catch up. It’s a nice way to break up the week and there’s nothing quite like a Nebraska Sunset.

Suns Out Booms Out

It’s truly amazing how fast the crops grow, and how quickly each growing season seems to pass by. Those little corn plants I just posted pictures of, well they’re not so little anymore…

Baby Corn

Planting is done, but the work is far from over. As the crops emerge farmers head back out into the field to ensure they have everything they need to bring bountiful yields this Harvest.

Planting 2016

The weather for #plant16 tested our resilience. It was a wet Spring resulting in many challenges, and in some cases, flooding fields enough for some re-plant. Here are just a few of my favorite shots from this year’s planting season. Now it’s time to pray that the rain we had this Spring continues to fall throughout the Summer.
