Soybean Harvest

Dad finished harvesting the soybeans here on the home farm. There are a couple fields in the area that need combined, and then the soybean harvest will be over. One interesting thing this year about the harvest, is that we haven’t gotten a frost yet! Because of this, the bean stalks are still green (they haven’t died down completely). The stalks become lodged in the reel and plug it up. Although this doesn’t damage the combine, it does make combining difficult.
