For Amber Waves of Grain
Growing up in KS, I was always accustomed to seeing all the miles and miles of farmland filled with the season’s crop. I did not, however, grow up with the personal experience of working the field. That has since changed since I married the love of my life. My wife is your typical farmer’s daughter, and the daughter of a good farmer at that. For the past few years I’ve been able to participate in the harvesting process. It’s a lot of hours sitting inside the combine, but I for one enjoy it. You get to observe many sunsets as you work well into the night. And there is usually a chance for a good photo op at least a couple times a day.
