the combine they used, those beans were a little too dry so that's why there is so much dust.

in the pic below, one of the metal shields on the combine wasn't put on the right way and came loose and let a bunch of dust build up under the cab, so my granddad and two of the guys that came to pick the soybeans are trying to get it put back on the right way.

i got a chance to take a ride around in the combine, ended up staying in there till they were done, had to help the driver get to the one field, he wasn't sure how to get there, so i stayed in the combine to guide him to the other field.

here we are unloading the bin into the trailer.

south central pennsylvania, our farm is right along the pa turnpike just east of the sideling hill plaza. in the pic of the combine's mirror, that building that is betwenn the mirror and the edge of the picture is the plaza, the water tower that serves it is right on the edge of the picture, most of it got cut off.
