Fall prep

The buckwheat was harvested and shocked.  It went pretty fast with the cradle, only the straw is so weak that it can be tricky to tie the shocks.  Interestingly, after seeing all the buckwheat re-seed itself two weeks later it almost seems like hand harvesting caused more shattering than the cradle.

This is how it looked after pulling the drag through a few times.  Frustrating with all the trash clogging the tines, but the team and I are getting better at this.

Flint corn looks great.  I harvest the ears and then toss the stock to the herd.
