On My Way to Harvest

As I stated in an earlier has been very hectic. I am behind in blogging and I have a lot of things I want to share. 5 hours I'll be on my way to Montana ---first going to Seattle, WA where my sister and brother-in-law are going to pick me up, then we're heading out to drive to Cut Bank, Montana where I'll spend some time with my parents and hopefully help them out while my brother and everyone else is up to their eyeballs in harvest.

My brother Dave has over 15,000 acres in barley. All hands are on deck as they work on getting the crop in. He raises the high protein barley which is used in Fiber-one. Until this year, he was the only producer in the U.S., but Con-Agra got him to convince other Montana farmers to raise it as well.

I hope to be able to post some pictures when I'm out there...cameras are going and hopefully, I haven't forgotten anything.

I hope you have a nice visit and good luck to your brother with his harvest.

15,000 acres! I wish I could see that! Here having 100 acres is a very big thing. Too many people and the land keeps getting subdivided with each inheritance.
