All Done and Dusted.

Posted by mervfrench on December 3, 2010

Harvest is over for another year , one of the earliest finish’s I can remember , due to the poor season and lack of finishing rain.

This year is a year most farmers want to forget.

Here’s a couple from the last day of harvesting.

      Hi Mark , long time no speak.

      Yeah I’d better get back into it I’ve sort of lost the knack.

      I’ve had about 6 goes at this one trying to get it right putting shots in and taking them out , I think i’ll leave it as it is now.

    Se thats what happens when you don’t practice enough mate!

  4. Terrific images, Merv, great patterns in the landscap, I particularly like the last one though

  5. Great post Merv, very enjoyable. I should have come down for a few days, I miss harvesting a bit. I have not done that since oh, about 1992, and I miss driving the big harvesters and tractors and that special team group feeling of bringing in the harvest, always the best season on a farm, where you reap the rewards hopefully. Sorry to hear it’s been a bad year.

    Last shot is cool. There’s a size difference for sure, in Tiny Denmark we use 1 harvester, not a whole tag team like that. Mind you if we did, we could finish in about one day ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hi Merv, nice images, good to see a bit of crop anyway. Albany is SO quite with very little cocky money coming to town.

    Cheers mate.

  7. So this is what you have been doing these last few weeks, sitting on the field bin taking pictures of the headers going round. I thought you were supposed to be driving one ?
    I like the bottom one.

      If I would have been driving a chaser bin instead of a header I would have had plenty of time to take pictures, those two guys didn’t exactly get a sweat up this year.

    Bugger about the poor season this year Merv!! My brother is scratching for money at the moment too but thats cause Challenge Dairy went kapoot!!! Thankfully he just signed with National Foods yesterday, but it doesnt look like he will get the money he is owed from Challenge!!! Heres hoping for a bumper season next year!!!

  9. It was shaping up to be the best season in years here, with large lush crops, but recent rains and a locust plague have put a dent in it, very humid, thundery conditions.

      Hi Tom thanks for the visit.

      The whole east coast is copping a heap of rain and turning crops to wet wheatbix.

      I feel for those guys who were expecting and needing a big crop.

  10. I like the bottom one too ๐Ÿ˜‰

  11. bottom 2 are really quite nice images Merv. rural area’s are so full of interesting patterns and you’ve captured it nicely in these shots.
