The soft white spring wheat flourished during a wonderful summer and was harvested in late August. Hannah operates the combine beside a field of golden straw from newly-harvested oats.
Two years ago, the Gentry family kindly donated a combine that had been parked for 20 years to Urban Grains CSA. Agassiz-based artist Mike Edwards (http://mikeedwardsart.com) spent many hours getting it back into working condition, and here it is – at long last – working in a field of hard red spring wheat. It’s an excellent machine, but some glitches persisted throughout the harvest, bringing new surprises each day. (As a result, we regret that despite our initial plans, this harvest season wasn’t the proper (ahem) atmosphere for visitors…) We’re confident that it’ll work like new next year (knock on wood)!
