|The product coming out to the combine into the grain cart will end up in the grocery stores|
as flour or in crackers, cakes/cookies, bread & so much more!
A video to give you an idea of what harvesting on a hillside looks like on the rolling hills of the "Palouse area" in North Idaho. The grain cart waits in the field until the combines bulk tank is full and ready to unload.
The first ride in the combine is always an exciting event!

slick, so nice to hitch a ride in Mom's arms

The crew was really excited to see us because it meant I was bringing out cold drinks and peanut butter bars.

We were short a tractor driver, so our new son-in-law took a couple of days off from his job and came out to help on Monday and Tuesday (today).

And remember yesterday's blog about the Zucchini Cobbler Bars??? Well, here is a picture of them and the recipe will be posted on the OMG page, along with picture instructions. After I made the first batch and gave them away, I couldn't help myself and had to make another batch, so this time I took pictures of the process.
