Beyond a bare already harvested soybean field, a combine chews its way through another soybean crop.
Living and working in a rural area has its advantages and drawbacks, as does living anywhere. I count as an advantage – a blessing – seeing this clear evidence of the changing seasons, of seeing where food comes from, of who harvests it and how.
A combine cuts the first swathe through a soybean field. The last swathe may be done before I see the field tomorrow morning.
Back on Thursday.
It was a little incongruous to see a combine working deep inside town limits.
Wheat harvest is in full swing. A combine marches through the wheat; when it reaches the end of this swath it will do-si-do and roundabout onto the next swath.
Details softened, this combine awaits its next assignment.
