Bean Harvest

Last Thursday we stopped by one of the fields to visit Jonathan and caught some neat harvesting going on! This picture is of Jonathan combining in the tractor pulling a Lilliston (left) bean harvester, Christopher in the tractor (center) rodding (spins a 1 inch square rod underground that pulls the plants then puts them in a windrow) beans prior to them being combined, and David in the John Deere (right) combine harvesting beans. Those combines were right on Christopher's tail! On Saturday the guys were so blessed to finish up the bean harvest. This year they grew navy and small red beans. They had been going full steam at it for the last couple weeks, so it's nice to see them a little less busy.:)

Paul was in the field for a bit (white Dodge) circulating (for lack of a better word I rely on my nursing terms:)), Abraham loved watching the action and seeing Daddy, the Lilliston dumping beans into the semi.

Nicole and Mariam stopped by with some lunch for David and Christopher (don't you love Mariam's hat - too cute:))...

Here's a short video of the harvest...
