Finer Things Friday: Wheat Harvest


When you don’t have to worry about the yields…

or the test weight…

or current grain prices…

When you can sit back and enjoy the ride…

and everyone has a big machine…

and nobody has to wait their turn…

Wheat harvest becomes a Finer Thing, indeed!

  1. I love it! Those big machines have always awe struck me.

    Your kiddos are too cute getting in on the fun. 🙂

  2. What fun! My husbands family are farmers, he grew up with all that.
    Thanks for hosting!

  3. Ooh, I miss being home for wheat harvest! I know I’ve forgotten all about the heat and filth and exhaustion that comes with it…I just miss it.

  4. Love it!! My post is similar but about blueberry picking. Just love the process of harvesting anything! Maybe I should have been a farmer!!!

  5. It looks like a great day!

  6. Great pictures. Looks like you did indeed have a fine day!

  7. How cool! 😀 It looks like the kids have fun riding in the big machines. Praise God for a plenteous harvest!

  8. Amy – just wanted to say how much I have been enjoying your blog. Thanks for having a forum for me to share my random musings and keep up the good work!

  9. Wow, that brings back memories.. I used to spend my summers on the farm with my Grandma in NE and wheat harvest was always right before the 4th of July. Man this brings me back. I sure do miss the country. Amy – I’m new to your blog and have really enjoyed reading. It’s really made me sit back, relax and try to take things a little slower. We have to be thankful for what GOD has given us and make the best of it! Again, Thanks for (unknowingly) helping me find my focus again.

  10. Wow, that looks fun!

  11. It’s the backbone of our country and beautiful!

  12. AHHHH! I would swear Hubs just finished planting the corn and beans – it can’t be time for wheat harvest already!?! :>) Thankfully, as Liz noted, we’re a few weeks behind you up here in Nebraska.

    As an aside, when asked when her birthday was, a “country” cousin would always respond “wheat harvest”. To this day, I’m not exactly sure when it is . . . I’m thinking July 19, though.

    If she knew it was coming, I’m sure Goose would be looking forward to all the time with Papa in the tractor!

  13. What a neat experience!!!

  14. What a great post!
    Great reminder of those things that really matter. Will definitely be tuning in for the finer things!
